Czarnik went scoreless in four games for the Islanders the regular season. Czarnik was pretty much an afterthought this season after signing a two-year contract with the team in October. He's a center, and that's the one position where the Islanders have plenty of depth, with Mathew Barzal, Brock Nelson, Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Casey Cizikas. Czarnik will likely face the same obstacles next season as well.
Czarnik was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, per CapFriendly. Czarnik rarely saw much time with the Islanders, drawing into only four games. The 28-year-old will provide veteran forward depth during the postseason.
Czarnik hasn't cracked the lineup for the Islanders since March 16. The Islanders may be struggling to find the back of the net, but they know Czarnik is not the answer. Czarnik is nothing more than organizational depth at center at this point.
Czarnik was demoted to the Islanders' taxi squad Sunday, per CapFriendly. Czarnik will likely continue to bounce between levels throughout the rest of the season.
Czarnik was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. Czarnik was called up as pregame injury insurance ahead of Saturday's matchup against the Flyers. He hasn't played an NHL game since March 16.
