Pageau had surgery on his hand Monday but is expected to be fully fit for the start of the 2021-22 campaign. News of Pageau's injury shouldn't come as a huge surprise when you consider he went completely absent from the scoresheet in seven games against the Lightning despite having notched 13 points in the prior 12 postseason contests. The center should continue to serve as a mainstay on the third line and should be capable of challenging for the 30-point threshold in addition to logging minutes with the man advantage.
Pageau is expected to need surgery to repair an injury he suffered at some point during the playoff run for the Islanders, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. Pageau is reportedly dealing with multiple injuries, one of which will require surgery. Pageau refused to disclose the nature of his injury Sunday, but it's not expected to be anything that will cause him to miss the beginning of next season.
Pageau (undisclosed) had three shots and three hits in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Lightning in Game 3. The veteran center was right back in the lineup after missing most of the third period in Game 2. It's not clear what the injury is or was, but Pageau has now gone three straight games without a point for the first time in the playoffs. Despite the drought, Pageau has put up 13 points in 15 games overall during the postseason.
Pageau (undisclosed) is slated to play in Thursday's Game 3 clash with the Lightning, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. In 14 postseason contests, Pageau has garnered three goals and 10 helpers, including two power-play points, but it seems clear he is playing through an injury at this point, which could slow his offensive production. As such, fantasy players may want to look for alternative options among the Islanders' forward complement, including linemate Kyle Palmieri.
Pageau missed the last 13 minutes of the game Tuesday after suffering an undisclosed injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Coach Barry Trotz didn't state the nature of the injury other than calling it a tweak. The injury is not considered serious, and Pageau may have been held out of the game as a precaution because the Isles were down three goals. Trotz also added that Pageau is expected to play in Game 3 on Thursday.
