Eberle scored twice, with one coming on the power play, in Monday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.
It took a couple of months, but Eberle finally cracked the goose egg in the goal column with a power-play tally in the second period. He doubled down by adding an insurance marker in the third. The 29-year-old still has just seven points in 15 appearances this season. A five-time 50-point earner, Eberle is due for some positive regression after a rough start to 2019-20.
Eberle practiced on the third-line Tuesday with Leo Komarov and Michael Dal Colle, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Coach Barry Trotz didn't mention any names but was obviously upset at several players after losing 3-0 to the Ducks on Monday. Trotz called these players "passengers" and stated he would meet with them before the Isles play again Wednesday versus the Kings. Eberle has had a multitude of scoring chances since returning from an ankle injury but has yet to light the lamp the season. His stay on the third line should be short-lived, but he'll need to produce more often to ascend back to the top six.
Eberle does not have a goal in 11 games so far this season for the Islanders.
Eberle re-signed with the Islanders with a five-year, $27.5 million contract this past June. Right now he's returning little bang for that buck. Eberle did miss 10 games with a lower-body injury earlier this season, and perhaps that is still affecting his play, but it wasn't like he was lighting up the scoreboard before the injury. The numbers aren't pretty, but coach Barry Trotz still has Eberle on the top line and on the first power-play unit. The next chance for Eberle to break his scoring slump will be Monday in Anaheim.
Eberle (lower body) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Panthers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
The Islanders don't appear to be planning on easing Eberle in following his 10-game absence, as he'll be skating on the first line and top power-play unit Saturday. The 29-year-old winger notched three helpers in five games before missing time due to a lower-body injury.
Eberle (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup with Florida, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Eberle's status against the Panthers is still up in the air at this point, but he may join his teammates for pregame warmups, at which point a final decision on his availability will be made. If he's given the green light, the veteran forward will return to a top-six role and a spot on one of the Islanders' man-advantage units.
Eberle (lower body) practiced Monday with a non-contact jersey, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Eberle has missed the last eight games due to the injury. It would seem that Eberle would be unlikely to play in a game until he can get through a full practice, which would mean the earliest he would get back in the lineup is Thursday versus the Penguins. Eberle has only played five games this season and has three points, all assists, to go along with a minus-1 rating. Eberle is expected to return to the top line for the Islanders with Mathew Barzal and Anders Lee when healthy enough to play.
Eberle (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Saturday's game agains tthe Sabres, NHL.com's Heather Engel reports.
Eberle is nearing a return to the lineup, but the Islanders have won seven straight games during his absence, so there's no reason for them to rush him back before he's fully recovered. The 29-year-old winger will be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa.
Eberle (lower body) is getting closer to a return to the lineup, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.
Coach Barry Trotz stated Monday that Eberle is considered day-to-day. Trotz was also playing it coy when he said he's just not sure which day he will return. Eberle is skating with the team, and the Islanders don't play again until Friday and Saturday. Trotz may decide to play it safe with Eberle and only activate him for the second of those back-to-back games in Buffalo on Saturday.
Eberle (lower body) is back to skating, but doesn't have a return date set, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
This news obviously rules Eberle out for Sunday's contest, but the fact that he's back to skating suggests a return could be close. The 29-year-old will now miss five consecutive games dealing with the nick, and the team just announced they will be without forwards Tom Kuhnhackl (lower body) and Matt Martin (undisclosed) for 4-to-six weeks. The great news for Eberle is that the team will be off until Friday when they take on the Lightning.
Eberle (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's game against the Coyotes, NHL.com's Brian Compton reports.
Coach Barry Trotz labeled Eberle doubtful for Thursday's contest earlier this week, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. The 29-year-old winger has now missed four consecutive games, and at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to rejoin the lineup. He'll need to be activated off injured reserve before returning to game action, so he can be considered out indefinitely until that occurs.
Eberle (lower body) is considered doubtful for Thursday's home game against the Coyotes, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
If Eberle's indeed unable to play Thursday, he'll likely sit out Friday's game against the Senators as well. Eberle skated on his own Monday, so he's on the right track. Oliver Wahlstrom figures to stay in the lineup while Tom Kuhnhackl mans the top line in Eberle's place.
Eberle (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
The Islanders originally thought that Eberle could possibly return to the lineup Saturday in Columbus, but apparently he isn't healing as quickly as the team had hoped for. Eberle has three points, all assists, in five games this season. He signed a five-year, $27.5 million contract this past June and is expected to be one of the top offensive players for the Islanders this season.
Per Andrew Gross of Newsday, Eberle (lower body) wasn't on the ice for morning skate, which suggests he likely won't play Saturday against Columbus.
Eberle was considered doubtful for Saturday's contest due to his lower-body injury, so the fact that he won't be in the lineup against the Blue Jackets doesn't come as a surprise. The 29-year-old winger will hope to heal up in time for Thursday's game against Arizona.
Eberle (lower body) won't travel with the team for Thursday's road game against the Jets, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.
The report leaves open the chance that Eberle could join the team Saturday for a matchup against Columbus. For now, Tom Kuhnhackl appears to be taking Eberle's place on the top line with Mathew Barzal, and rookie Oliver Wahlstrom will stay in the lineup.
Eberle (lower body) is considered doubtful for Thursday's game against the Jets, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Eberle is still technically considered day-to-day with his lower-body issue, but it sounds like he'll almost certainly miss at least one more contest. If that ends up being the case, the 29-year-old will set his sights on recovering in time for Saturday's matchup with Columbus. Either way, confirmation on Eberle's status against Winnipeg should surface prior to puck drop on Thursday night.
Eberle (leg) is day-to-day and won't play in Monday's game against the Blues.
Eberle was injured in Saturday's game against the Panthers. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, but he won't be ready in time for Monday's afternoon contest. In his place, the Islanders will plug rookie Oliver Wahlstrom into the top six.
Eberle suffered a leg injury late in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Panthers.
Eberle took a hard check along the board and limped to the bench. He didn't go to the locker room, but he also didn't take another shift in the game. Consider the forward day-to-day for now.
Eberle generated a pair of power-play assists and three shots on goal in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
Eberle had the secondary assist on goals by Brock Nelson and Johnny Boychuk. It's been a rough start to the year for the 29-year-old winger, who had gone pointless in the first three games of the season before the two-point burst Friday. He should see plenty of scoring opportunities as long as he remains on the top line.
Eberle scored his first goal of the preseason Tuesday as the Islanders defeated the Flyers 3-2 in overtime.
Eberle may be the key to any success the Islanders have this season, as they are looking for goal scoring and Eberle seemed to find his missing scoring touch in the postseason last year. Eberle was a free agent but elected to come back to the Isles with a five-year, $27.5 million contract. He is expected to play on the top line with Mathew Barzal and Anders Lee, but that will only last if he produces, something that hasn't always occurred in his first couple of seasons with the Islanders.
Eberle agreed to terms on a five-year, $27.5 million contract with the Islanders on Friday.
Eberle is coming off a down season in which he tied the lowest point total of his career (27), with the previous total coming during the lockout shortened 2012-13 campaign. Still, this new deal suggests that team brass believe the winger can get back to being a 50-plus point producer. The 28-year-old figures to continue filling a top-six role in addition to logging minutes on the power play, giving him rock-solid fantasy value.
