Ladd collected an assist in a 5-3 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

He also received a season-low 12:29 of ice time, which is likely due to his terrible start as an Islander rather than any type of ailment. Ladd has been awful in Brooklyn since signing a seven-year, $38.5 million contract last summer, recording just four points and 36 shots on goal in 22 games. His 46 points split between Winnipeg and Chicago last year were already a substantial downturn from the 162 he'd put up in the previous 207 contests as a Jet, making his minuscule output in 2016-17 that much more alarming.
