    • Zidlicky Offered Contract By Islanders

      Analysis: If the two sides come to terms then Marek Zidlicky would essentially replace Lubomir Visnovsky and could become something of a power play specialist. This signing could also be a signal that the Isles don't believe Ryan Pulock is ready to play a full season in the NHL.

    • Devils' Zidlicky Plans To Play In 2015-16

      News: The agent for Marek Zidlicky (concussion) said his client is "100 percent committed to playing in the NHL next season," Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
      Analysis: Marek Zidlicky, 38, had temporarily been considering retirement after his Red Wings were eliminated from the playoffs in April, but with free agency approaching, he quickly changed his tune in order to increase his marketability to other clubs. Even at his advanced age, Zidlicky offers a quality right-handed shot on defense, but it's unclear whether the Red Wings are interested in bringing him back. Zidlicky tallied seven goals and 27 assists across 84 games with the Devils and Red Wings last season, playing in every game until a concussion prevented him from suiting up in Game 7 of Detroit's first-round series loss to Tampa Bay. He's expected to be fine for the start of the upcoming season.

Between his age and long-term health concerns, Marek Zidlicky may find it hard to justify playing another season. If he does decide to continue his career, he'll be an unrestricted free agent.

If Detroit gets to the next round, Marek Zidlicky may be available, but it's going to be a stiff test in Tampa on Wednesday without two of its better defensemen. Zidlicky and Kronwall will be replaced by Jakub Kindl and Alexei Marchenko.
