Kuhnhackl (shoulder) is in camp with the Islanders on a professional tryout, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. Kuhnhackl had seven goals and eight assists in 64 games for the Isles over the past two seasons and could have a role on the team as a part-time player when healthy. The Islanders are looking for wings to play alongside Jean-Gabriel Pageau on the third line.
Kuhnhackl (undisclosed) had successful surgery and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. General manager Lou Lamoriello didn't provide details regarding the nature of Kuhnhackl's ailment other than the fact that he has successful surgery. Even once fully fit, the winger is far from a lock for the lineup on a nightly basis and could serve as a healthy scratch from time to time.
Kuhnhackl (undisclosed) has left the bubble and won't return for the rest of the postseason, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports. Kuhnhackl has been a healthy scratch in every game since Aug. 5, but he has an apparent injury that will keep him out. Casey Cizikas (undisclosed) will also go back to New York.
Kuhnhackl is expected to be available to play Saturday after missing the game Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. One thing to remember about Kuhnhackl is that he may not have played Thursday even if recovered as he had been a healthy scratch for the previous four games and the same may be true Saturday. However, the Islanders are reeling right now and may look for a change in the lineup to get out of their current team-wide slump. Kuhnhackl will also have a better chance of playing if Clutterbuck (undisclosed) is unable to suit up.
Kuhnhackl will not be in the lineup against the Senators on Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Kuhnhackl hasn't played in the team's last four games. Instead, he's served as a healthy scratch in the press box, so there was no guarantee the winger would have played anyway. Without a clear spot in the lineup, the German won't offer much in terms of fantasy value the rest of the way.
