It's that lack of production that should cause fantasy players to hesitate in selecting the blueliner in their fantasy pools.

    Islanders' Nick Leddy: New defensive partner

    Nick Leddy will partner with Noah Dobson on Thursday in Ottawa, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.Leddy is usually paired with Johnny Boychuk (face), but the latter is out of the lineup Thursday and there is no timetable for his return as of yet. Leddy and Boychuk generally made a good pair as Leddy is more offensively gifted whereas Boychuk is more of a stay-at-home defender. It remains to be seen how well Leddy will play with Dobson, as both lean towards the offensive side, but by playing with Leddy, Dobson is able to stay on his natural side.

    Islanders' Nick Leddy: Goal drought at 22 games

    Nick Leddy hasn't lit the lamp in the last 22 games.Leddy has three goals, 17 assists and a rating of plus-6 in 48 games this season. He is still on pace to perform better offensively than last year, when he only had four goals and 26 points in 82 games, but the New York Islanders need more from who is supposed to be their best offensive defenseman. In his first three seasons with the team, Leddy averaged almost 43 points, but that also came with a negative rating. Head coach Barry Trotz has limited some of Leddy's offensive opportunities with his game-planning and coaching style, and while that tradeoff may help the team, fantasy owners would like to see him produce more.

This came after scoring at least 37 points in his first four seasons for the Isles. His offensive decline has continued, as he only has three goals and 15 assists in 41 games.

    Islanders' Nick Leddy: Top pair defender

    Nick Leddy has been moved to the top defensive pair for the New York Islanders, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.The Islanders had been using Adam Pelech and Ryan Pulock as their top pair but an Achilles injury will sideline Pelech until at least May. This injury has forced coach Barry Trotz to mix and match defensive pairs and as of Thursday, he has settled on Leddy and Pulock. Leddy is known as a great skater who is good with the puck while Pulock has one of the harder shots in the NHL. This duo may also be used as the top power-play pair. On the season, Leddy has three goals, 14 assists and a plus-4 rating in 34 games.
