Prince (lower body) is projected to sit out Sunday's game against Ottawa. The winger has missed the last three games, and missing another could be announced closer to puck drop. With 18 points in 50 games, he doesn't turn many fantasy heads, but it was still a career-high offensive output.
Prince (lower body) won't play Thursday against Carolina. It would take a small miracle for the Islanders to sneak into the playoffs with just three games remaining in the regular season, so it wouldn't be surprising if New York opted to shut Prince down for the rest of the campaign. The 24-year-old winger has been a solid bottom-six option for the Isles this season, but his meager offensive output -- 18 points in 50 games -- keeps him from being a desirable option in most fantasy formats.
Prince (lower body) will not play Tuesday against Nashville. The 2011 second-round pick was able to suit up for the team's last two games, but he's been battling lower-body issues since March 7, causing him to miss 10 of the 13 games since. In Prince's absence, the Isles will dress seven defensemen, so expect Thomas Hickey and Adam Pelech to make their way into the lineup Tuesday.
Updating an earlier report, Prince (lower body) will draw in Saturday against the Bruins. The initial reports had Prince as an injured scratch, but now it's time for him to party like it's 1999. He'll tag in for Alan Quine to try and help the Islanders break a tie with the B's to become front runners for a wild-card playoff spot out of the Eastern Conference.
Prince (lower body) is listed among the injured scratches for Saturday's contest against the visiting Bruins, NHL.com reports. The well-rounded flanker hasn't hit game ice since sustaining his injury March 7, forcing the playoff-aspirant Isles to find alternatives on the man advantage.
