    Islanders' Marek Zidlicky: Back in action Tuesday

    Zidlicky will be in the lineup Tuesday night against the visiting Blue Jackets. Zidlicky has missed seven games this season with Islanders coach Jack Capuano occasionally parking him on the bench. At least for Tuesday, Zidlicky will join Scott Mayfield as the only other Isles blueliner that is healthy and has a right-handed shot.

    Islanders' Marek Zidlicky: Will draw into lineup Tuesday

    Zidlicky will be in the lineup Tuesday night, opposing the Maple Leafs on the road, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Zidlicky reportedly will replace Brian Strait against the Buds. Interestingly, the 53 points that Zidlicky put up in his rookie campaign with the Predators has proven to be his best mark through 11 years of service time. He can still get it done offensively as a bottom-pairing defenseman, but Zidlicky is 38 years old and the Islanders don't need him to be a 20-plus minute player like he was with the Devils in 2014-15.

    Islanders' Marek Zidlicky: Scores twice against former team

    Zidlicky potted a pair of goals in Sunday's win over the Devils. Zidlicky had been held off the scoresheet in four straight coming in, and hadn't found the back of the net since the first game of the season, but continued to find success against his former club as he now has four points against the Devils in three games this year. The blueliner has just 10 points on the year though, and likely won't contribute much in standard formats.

    Islanders' Marek Zidlicky: Tallies two helpers

  • Zidlicky Offered Contract By Islanders

    News: The Islanders have offered a contract to Marek Zidlicky, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
    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.
  • Isles Showing Interest In Zidlicky

    News: There is mutual interest between the Islanders and Marek Zidlicky, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
    Analysis: Should the Islanders consummate a deal with Marek Zidlicky, an unrestricted free agent, it could result in top defensive prospect Ryan Pulock opening next season at AHL Bridgeport. If he signs, Zidlicky would provide the Islanders with a boost at one of the points of their power play, an area where the team struggled near the end of last season.
  • 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.
  • Red Wings' Zidlicky May Consider Retirement

    News: Marek Zidlicky (concussion) is unsure whether he wants to keep playing, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
    Analysis: The 38-year-old blueliner suffered a concussion during the playoffs, and while he doesn't have an extremely notable history of similar injuries, it's certainly not the first concussion of his career. 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.
  • Wings' Zidlicky (Concussion) Out Wednesday

    News: Marek Zidlicky suffered an apparent concussion in Monday's Game 6 against the Lightning and will miss Wednesday's Game 7, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
    Analysis: With Niklas Kronwall also out, the Red Wings' blue line is suddenly paper thin in depth. 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.
  • Wings' Zidlicky Earns Power-Play Assist In Loss

    News: Marek Zidlicky set up a power-play goal in Sunday's loss to the Islanders.
    Analysis: The move from New Jersey to the Motor City has given Marek Zidlicky's production new-found life. In 14 games with the Wings, he's collected a respectable three goals and six assists, with seven of his points coming on the man advantage. He had only 12 power-play points over 63 games with the Devils.
