Player News
  • Boychuk (shoulder) has been activated from injured reserve ahead of Saturday's road match with the Red Wings, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports. Boychuk should be ready to rock Saturday after missing the past 12 games with a dislocated shoulder in the final contest of 2015. The 32-year-old blueliner is averaging 21:33 of ice time this season, including 1:06 with the man advantage. He's grabbed 14 points in 38 games while carrying a plus-9 rating.

  • Boychuk (shoulder) is expected to return for the Islanders in Detroit on Saturday, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple. Boychuk hasn't played since dislocating his shoulder New Year's Eve versus the Sabres. The Islanders have been a .500 team without him (5-5-1) and will welcome his physical play and rocket shot back into the lineup.

  • Boychuk will miss his 11th consecutive game Tuesday against Minnesota, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Boychuk was expected to be ready to go following the All-Star break, but apparently needs some more time to get healthy. Not generally a prolific scorer, the defenseman is bogged down in a 22-game goalless streak. Despite his lack of production, the 32-year-old continues to log significant minutes with an average ice time of 21:33 per game.

  • The Islanders are hopeful that Boychuk (shoulder) will return to the lineup immediately after the All-Star break, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple. Boychuk only has 14 points this season but more importantly leads the team with a plus-minus rating of plus-9. His return would be a boost to a team that is having trouble lighting the lamp. Boychuk possesses a rocket of a shot from the point and rebounds could be there for the forwards to place into a yawning net. Even if Boychuk is unable to play in the first game back from the break he should return soon thereafter.

  • Boychuk (shoulder) skated before practice Monday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Boychuk still remains a ways away from rejoining the lineup, but it's certainly an encouraging sign that he's returned to the ice. The team should continue to provide updates as he gets closer to returning, with his next step being a return to practice.
