Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: First goal in nearly a month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck (face) scored his third goal of the season and dished out five hits in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over Vegas.

Clutterback had left Tuesday's game early after being cross-checked in the face, but was right back in the lineup Thursday and opened the scoring less than five minutes into the game. It was his first goal since Nov. 7, snapping a drought of 11 straight games without finding the net. The 32-year-old role player has seven points in 27 games and owns a plus-10 rating.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck (face) will be in the lineup for Thursday's matchup with Vegas, Brian Compton of reports.

Clutterbuck exited Tuesday's loss to the Canadiens after taking a cross-check to the face, but he's always been a tough player, so his inclusion in the lineup against the Golden Knights hardly comes as a surprise. The 32-year-old vet has been a steady bottom-six presence for the Islanders this season, but he's only picked up six points in 26 games, so he can be ignored from a fantasy standpoint.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Takes cross-check to face
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Barry Trotz did not have an update as to the status of Clutterbuck after he took an unpenalized cross-check to the face versus Montreal on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Clutterbuck was seen bleeding from the mouth and yelling at the refs after the hit but never did return to the game. More information should be available before the team suits up at home Thursday against the Golden Knights.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Leaves with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck suffered an injury in the first period of Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Clutterbuck played only 2:02 in the contest before the injury occurred. Per Gross, coach Barry Trotz had no update on Clutterbuck's condition after the game. If the heavy-hitting winger is forced to miss time, Ross Johnston or Otto Koivula could enter the lineup in his place.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Ice time up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck is averaging over 14 minutes of ice-time per game which would be his highest total since 2011-12 when he was still with the Wild.

What this statistic shows more than anything else is that Clutterbuck is completely recovered from his offseason surgery. There was originally worry that back surgery could force Clutterbuck to miss the start of the season but that never materialized and Clutterbuck is back to being the same annoying kind of gnat on the ice that he always has been. Clutterbuck will continue to play on what might be the Islanders most consistent line when healthy, along with Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin (lower body).

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Two points against Sens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck scored an even-strength goal and added a short-handed assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Senators.

The Isles' checking lines supplied most of their offense on the night, with Clutterbuck and Casey Cizikas leading the way. Clutterbuck has one goal and four points through 14 games, not a surprising pace for the 31-year-old considering he hasn't scored more than 23 points in a season since 2011-12.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Yet to score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck has yet to wrinkle the twine in 12 games this season.

Clutterbuck only had 21 goals in his previous three seasons so the fact that he went goalless in October shouldn't come as too big of a surprise. Clutterbuck does have two helpers and a rating of plus-4 this season, but more will be expected of him offensively from this point forward.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Ice time dwindling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck is scoreless in six games this season and has seen his ice time decrease as a result, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

Coach Barry Trotz hasn't been shy about stating how disappointed he has been with the line of Matt Martin, Casey Cizikas (lower leg), and Clutterbuck. Martin has been a healthy scratch for the past two games, Cizikas is on IR, and Clutterbuck was on a line with Brock Nelson for part of the win versus the Blues. The Islanders have won their last two games, so it's unclear what Trotz will do with the fourth line when all members are ready to play.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Checks out fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck had to leave the game Monday due to a possible concussion, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Clutterbuck did return to the game as he passed the concussion protocol test and more importantly, didn't report any problems Tuesday. Clutterbuck had been questionable to start the season with the Islanders due to offseason back surgery, but has recovered quicker than expected and should open up the schedule with Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Not expected to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck is not expected to play in the Islanders' first exhibition game Monday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Clutterbuck hasn't suffered any setbacks after having offseason back surgery. The Islanders just want to ease him back into competition and don't see any reason to play him so early in the preseason. Clutterbuck should play at some point before the regular season begins and is expected to skate on his regular line with Matt Martin and Casey Cizikas.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck has "no issues" with his back ahead of training camp, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Clutterbuck underwent back surgery in May, but he's been skating since mid-August and participated in an on-ice training session with teammates Friday, so he should be ready to roll when New York's training camp gets underway next week. The 31-year-old winger, who notched eight goals and 23 points in 73 games last campaign, will slot into his usual bottom-six role for the Islanders this season.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Back on ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck (back) has resumed skating and will be monitored heading into training camp, Brian Compton of reports.

Clutterbuck underwent offseason surgery in order to get himself fully fit heading into the 2019-20 campaign. The winger won't be guaranteed a spot in the lineup for Opening Night against Washington on Oct. 4, especially with the emergence of Ross Johnston and Tanner Fritz, though he should still have an inside track.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Preparing for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck underwent back surgery and could be ready in time for training camp. General manager Lou Lamoriello told reporters, "It's my understanding he will be, but honestly it's a process I don't know much about," Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Clutterbuck seemed to be headed toward surgery when he spoke during the team's locker room cleanout, but he didn't know for certain at the time. With the procedure behind him, the winger can now focus on being 100 percent this fall. If fully fit, the Ontario native should be capable of putting up 20-to-25 points next season in a bottom-six role.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Could be headed for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck is suffering from a significant back injury that may require surgery and could sideline him for as long as six months, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

While no decisions have been made, the fact that Clutterbuck's recovery timeline falls between weeks to months is certainly not a good sign. If the winger does require surgery, it certainly seems like he won't be available for Opening Night in October and would likely begin the year on IR.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Misses season finale due to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck wasn't able to suit up for Friday's Game 4 loss to the Hurricanes due to an undisclosed injury, Brian Compton of reports.

Clutterbuck gutted it out and played through his undisclosed injury during Wednesday's Game 3, but he was simply too hobbled to give it a go for what ended up being the last game of the Islanders' season Friday. At this point there's no reason to believe the veteran winger, who totaled 23 points in 73 appearances this campaign, won't be back to 100 percent in time for next season's training camp.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Suiting up for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 3 in Carolina.

Clutterbuck suffered an undisclosed injury late in Game 2, but was deemed healthy enough to suit up Wednesday. The bruiser has made his presence felt in the playoffs, racking up 29 hits and three blocks in six games. He will resume his usual spot on the fourth line with Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's Game 3 against Carolina, Brian Compton of reports.

Clutterbuck suffered an undisclosed injury in the closing moments of Sunday's Game 2, but it appears as though the extra day between contests may have afforded him enough time to recover. Confirmation on the veteran forward's status for Game 3 will surface once the Islanders take the ice for pregame warmups.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Remains day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck (undisclosed) is day-to-day, though he will travel to Raleigh ahead of Wednesday's game against the Hurricanes, Brian Compton of reports.

Clutterbuck was clearly injured in Game 2 on Sunday, but the Islanders have been keeping specific details of the issue close to their collective vest. The Isles benefit from Clutterbuck's physical edge whenever he is in the lineup, as he's committed to 29 hits through six games in the playoffs thus far.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Suffers undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clutterbuck (undisclosed) had to be helped off the ice following Sunday's matchup with Carolina, Mike Morreale of reports.

The Islanders have a few extra days off, which could help Clutterbuck recover, depending on the severity of his injury. The winger may be filling a fourth-line role, but is also logging time on the power play (1:22 of ice time per game in the playoffs). The Ontario native's potential absence could force the club to recall a player or two from the minors ahead of Wednesday's Game 3 clash.

Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Clutterbuck (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Friday's Game 1 against Carolina, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Clutterbuck will return to his usual bottom-six role for Game 1, skating with Matt Martin and Casey Cizikas on the Islanders' fourth line.
