Seidenberg scored a goal in a 5-4 win over the Stars on Thursday. The 35-year-old also skated to a plus-3 in the contest, bringing him up to an eye-popping plus-23 on the campaign. Also, while Seidenberg's 19 points aren't earth-shattering, it's his most since 2011-12 with the Bruins, so he seems to be having something of a renaissance in his first season in Brooklyn.
Seidenberg hasn't tallied any points in his last seven games. Seidenberg has been a better player than expected since signing with the Islanders during training camp. He only has one goal this season but does have 11 helpers. His value to the team has been as a stable veteran defender who for the most part won't make mistakes and will also allow several of their younger blue liners to get further seasoning in the AHL.
Seidenberg (jaw) has been activated from the team's injured reserve list and will be in the lineup for Thursday night's game in Washington. Seidenberg returns to the Islanders' lineup after missing the last seven games to injury. Despite playing in only 15 games so far this season, Seidenberg has managed four assists and a very respectable four goals from the blue line, albeit at an unsustainable 22.2% shot percentage. Either way, the Isles should be happy to have him back and fantasy owners should keep an eye on him to see if he can add to his solid point total.
Seidenberg (jaw) will not be in the lineup Monday against the Flames. Seidenberg has yet to be activated off injured reserve and appears to need more time before he can return to the lineup for the Isles. When healthy, the defenseman has garnered four goals and four helpers in just 15 outings. The 35-year-old's fantasy value is somewhat limited considering he is not part of New York's power play, but could be a decent mid-range option when you factor in his productivity thus far this season.
Seidenberg (jaw) was on the ice Friday for the Islanders skate, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Seidenberg is on IR with a broken jaw after getting hit with a puck. He has maybe been the Islanders best defenseman this year which may tell you all you need to know about the team's defense as he was only signed about a week before the season opener. Seidenberg won't play Friday but his return looks to be sooner rather than later.
