Leddy finished the 2020-21 season with two goals, 29 assists, and a minus-3 rating in 56 games. Leddy's 29 assists were the most he has posted since the 2017-18 season. Leddy is signed for next year, but the Islanders may try to unload his contract to create salary-cap room. If not, then Leddy will once about be a top-four defender for the team in 2021-22.
Leddy scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Sunday's 1-0 overtime win over the Flyers. Leddy's tally at 2:23 of overtime was the only goal in a game dominated by netminders Ilya Sorokin and Brian Elliott. The tally was Leddy's first point in nine games in April. The 30-year-old defenseman has cooled off with scoring, but he still has 26 points through 45 contests. He's added 62 shots on net, 46 hits, 42 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating.
Leddy is struggling of late, as he hasn't registered a point in his last five games and has a minus-2 rating in that stretch. This is probably just a blip on the radar, as Leddy has had a solid season with a goal, 24 assists and an even rating in 41 games. Even in this shortened season, Leddy is likely to post the most helpers he's had since dishing out 42 during the 2017-18 campaign. Leddy has been paired with Scott Mayfield for most of the season, which isn't likely to change as the season winds down.
Leddy picked up three assists and one shot on goal in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Flyers. The veteran blueliner enjoyed his first multi-point performance since late February, figuring prominently in New York's third-period rally from 3-0 down. Leddy assisted on goals by Michael Dal Colle, Sebastian Aho and Oliver Wahlstrom in a span of less than seven minutes to tie the game, although Philadelphia would eventually reclaim the lead. The 29-year-old Leddy has enjoyed a nice season for the Islanders, collecting 21 points (20 assists) in 31 games to rank among the NHL's top 15 defensemen in scoring.
Leddy posted a power-play assist and two hits in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Penguins. Leddy set up Oliver Wahlstrom for the opening tally at 19:20 of the first period. The 29-year-old Leddy finished February with nine helpers in 12 outings, a solid scoring rate for the second-pairing blueliner. He's at 14 points, 32 shots on goal, 23 hits and 19 blocked shots in 21 appearances overall. With eight of his points on the power play, Leddy has appeal for fantasy managers in need of some depth offense.
