Sbisa is dealing with an upper-body injury that will keep him out of the lineup for a week at minimum, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
Sbisa was just two games back from a lower-body issue and will now go back onto the injury list. With just 10 points in 44 contests this year, the blueliner doesn't offer much in terms of offensive production even when healthy, Sbisa's absence will allow Sami Niku (undisclosed) to get back into the lineup versus Los Angeles on Tuesday. Considering he will miss at least the next four contests, Sbisa figures to be placed on IR soon.
Sbisa recorded four hits in just under 14 minutes of ice time during Friday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.
The veteran blueliner had missed the prior three games with a lower-body injury. but Sbisa looked like his usual rugged self in his return, albeit in a smaller than normal workload. He has only two goals and 10 points through 43 games this season, but he provides more value in formats with a deeper mix of categories as he's added 88 hits and 71 blocked shots to his ledger.
Sbisa (lower body) is set to play in Friday's matchup with San Jose, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Sbisa missed the previous three games due to his lower-body issue but appears ready to go Friday. With Tucker Poolman (lower body) also slated to return to the lineup, both Anthony Bitetto and Sami Niku could find themselves relegated to the press box.
Sbisa (lower body) will miss Tuesday's matchup with the Rangers, Mike Sawatzky of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Sbisa will be on the shelf for his third straight game due to his lower-body issue. Considering the blueliner is stuck in a 21-game goal drought, during which he's registered just four helpers, fantasy owners probably shouldn't be banking on him for offensive production once he's cleared to play.
Sbisa (lower body) isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against the Blackhawks, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports.
Sbisa missed Saturday's game against Ottawa, and with the team rolling with the same lineup, he's set to miss more time. The 30-year-old suffered the injury in Thursday's game against St. Louis, blocking a shot in the leg, and his timetable to return has yet to be clarified. Anthony Bitetto and Nathan Beaulieu will continue to operate as the team's third defensive pair for Sunday's contest.
Sbisa (lower body) won't be in the lineup against the Senators on Saturday, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Sbisa has been a mainstay in the Jets' lineup since being claimed off waivers by the club. In 42 outings, the blueliner has notched two goals, eight helpers and 49 shots while averaging 18:06 of ice time. Given his limited offensive upside, the Italian likely won't provide more than mid-range fantasy value, at best.
Sbisa (lower body) won't return to Thursday's game against the Blues.
Sbisa suffered the injury when he stuck his leg out to block a David Perron shot in the second period. The blueliner struggled to put weight on his leg, suggesting some severity of the injury. Expect the team to update Sbisa's status ahead of Saturday's clash with Ottawa.
Sbisa produced two helpers, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Sbisa had a hand in goals by Mason Appleton and Kyle Connor in the first period. The 29-year-old blueliner is up to 10 points, 48 shots on goal, 78 hits and 65 blocked shots in 38 contests. Sbisa has three assists in his last three games, but that's an unusually productive run for the typically defense-first blueliner.
Sbisa notched an assist, five hits and two blocked shots in Sunday 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Sbisa snapped an 11-game drought with the helper. The defense-first blueliner has eight points, 72 hits, 63 blocked shots and 47 shots on goal in 36 games, which isn't enough production for most fantasy owners to consider.
Sbisa registered three shots, three hits and two PIM in 20:51 of ice time against Montreal on Monday.
Sbisa is far from an offensive powerhouse, as he has topped the 20-point mark just once in his career. The Italian is currently stuck in a seven-game pointless streak and hasn't scored a goal in his last 10 appearances. Considering his limited offensive upside, the 29-year-old should be considered a low-end fantasy option, even in formats that value hits and blocks.
Sbisa scored a goal on one shot against the Flyers on Sunday.
Sbisa brought a nine-game goal drought to a close with his tally. Since joining the Jets off waivers in October, the blueliner notched two goals, four helpers and 43 hits while averaging 17:53 of ice time. Not exactly an offensive force, the Italian could still reach the 20-point mark for the first time since the 2011-12 campaign.
Sbisa (undisclosed) missed Wednesday's practice session, but is expected to suit up versus Dallas on Thursday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Sbisa was injured late in the third period against Dallas on Tuesday, but will join the team on the reverse trip to Big D. The Italian notched one goal and three assists in his previous eight games while averaging 18:25 of ice time. With Dmitry Kulikov (upper body) out long term, Sbisa should see the most significant uptick in ice time.
Sbisa left Tuesday's game versus the Stars with an undisclosed injury, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports.
Sbisa was hit with Alexander Radulov's skate late in the third period. After the game, coach Paul Maurice had no update on Sbisa's condition, per Wiebe. The Jets have a rematch against the Stars on Thursday -- an update on Sbisa's availability for that contest should surface in the coming days.
Sbisa produced an assist and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.
Sbisa had the secondary helper on David Gustafsson's tally in the first period. Sbisa has produced an unlikely scoring burst with three points in his last five games. That accounts for all of his offense this year, to go with 24 hits and 21 blocked shots through 13 outings.
Sbisa scored his first goal of the year and had two shots in a 5-3 loss to Dallas on Thursday.
Sbisa scored with 4:46 left in the third period to tie the game at 3-3 after the Jets had trailed 3-0. It was the first goal in 11 games this season for the 29-year-old, who is in his first season with the Jets. Sbisa hasn't collected more than 14 points in a season since 2011-12, so look elsewhere for fantasy help.
Sbisa failed to record a single shot, block or hit against Dallas on Sunday.
Sbisa logged just 15:34 of ice time, but the fact that he had just a minus-1 rating to show for it won't increase his chances of staying in the lineup. The veteran will face challenges from both Carl Dahlstrom and Anthony Bitetto for a spot on the blue line and will need to show the coaching staff something soon to avoid being relegated to the press box.
The Jets claimed Sbisa off waivers from the Ducks on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Sbisa was cut from his PTO with the Islanders before the season began, and he was struggling to find a place in the NHL. The Ducks took a flier on him and immediately waived him with the intention of assignment to AHL San Diego. However, the Jets stood in the way, scooping him up to act as their seventh defensemen in case Tucker Poolman (undisclosed) misses additional time. Sbisa's place on the team appears to have an expiration date, which will likely come to fruition whenever Poolman and/or Nathan Beaulieu (upper body) are ready to go.
Sbisa signed a one-year, one-way contract with the Ducks on Tuesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
The Ducks will immediately place Sbisa on waivers with the intent of assigning him to AHL San Diego, who are struggling to start the season. He's a strong stay-at-home defensemen who can shore up the minor-league blue line, but Sbisa likely won't get a taste of the NHL unless injuries stack up with the big club.
Sbisa was released by the Islanders from a professional tryout offer Tuesday.
Sbisa made the Islanders' opening roster off a PTO last year, but he only suited up for nine games all season. The Islanders have a strong group of experienced young defensemen now and don't need Sbisa's veteran presence. The 29-year-old blueliner may seek out a minor-league contract elsewhere.
Sbisa -- who started training camp in 2018 on a PTO -- is once again joining the Islanders on a professional tryout agreement, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Sbisa was able to quickly earn a contract from New York last season, but played in a mere nine games in which he tallied one assist, five shots and 17 hits. If the blueliner is able to secure a permanent deal from the club, he will likely see similar usage as the seventh or eighth defenseman. Youngster Noah Dobson will no doubt be gunning for Sbisa's roster spot during camp.
