Leddy picked up a pair of assists in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Hurricanes. With just a point through nine games, it didn't seem like Leddy would be able to duplicated his total from last season -- 37 points in 78 games. He was able to grab a few points Thursday, albeit in a disappointing loss to the Hurricanes at home. Leddy skated 22:43 and remains a regular on the Isles power play. This could spark a hot streak, so it may be worth employing Leddy in daily formats Saturday when the Islanders take on the Devils.
Leddy has yet to record a point through five games this season. Leddy's average ice time this season is 19:25, which is around a minute less than last year. More importantly, the acquisition of power play specialist Marek Zidlicky during the offseason has decreased Leddy's power play time on ice by over a minute, dropping from 2:40 per game to 1:31 per game. Keep this in mind when considering that Leddy scored 12 of his 37 points on the power play last season.
