  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Placed on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/17) Cizikas (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    The energetic forward was already ruled out for four weeks Wednesday, so this move is essentially a formality. With Cizikas out of the lineup, Bracken Kearns will be centering the Isles' fourth line for the time being, though don't expect him to be nearly as productive as Cizikas in this role.

    Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Will miss a month with upper-body ailment

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/17) Cizikas will be out for four weeks with his upper-body injury, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

    Given this extended absence for Cizikas, he'll be lucky to see a dozen games left on the regular-season schedule by the time he's ready to return. As it stands now, the Islanders on the outside looking into the playoffs, and it might be in GM Garth Snow's best interest to find a suitable replacement for Cizikas if he's serious about extending the team's 2016-17 campaign. A physical pivot, Cizikas had consistently been called upon in shorthanded situations -- averaging 2:12 of ice time in that spot -- so his loss is a detriment to an already weak penalty kill that ranks 23rd in the league with a 79.8-percent success rate.

    Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Injured in Tuesday's road game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/21/17) Cizikas left Tuesday's game against the Red Wings due to an upper-body injury and he was unable to return.

    Cizikas had picked up the pace lately, posted three goals and five points in the month of February. It isn't much, but the goals are his most in a single month this season and the five points tie a best for a month with another week to go. He has emerged as a decent option for fantasy owners in deeper pools with a good chance to surpass last season's career-best 29 points.

    Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Tallies rare goal in win over Flyers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Cizikas scored just his sixth goal of the year over a season-high 17:36 of ice time in Thursday's 3-1 win over Philadelphia.

    Only John Tavares saw bigger minutes than Cizikas, who actually has a three-game point streak going. He's not really a pedigree guy, but the 25-year-old center did have success as a scorer in juniors and the AHL back in the day, and he's slowly but steadily increasing his production at the NHL level; with 21 points now, he has a good chance to surpass last season's career-best 29. If your fantasy league counts hits, he's probably already owned, but it may also be time to check on him in deep formats that don't use that category.

    Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Dishes out two assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/17) Cizikas registered two assists, three shots on net and three hits during Monday's win over Boston.

    The pivot's fantasy value is typically limited to leagues including body checks because his offensive contributions aren't frequent. After all, he has posted just four goals and 17 points through 36 games this year. Cizikas also entered Monday's game beginning 69.2 percent of his shifts in his own zone, which further limits his fantasy upside.
