Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Shut down for postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (undisclosed) has left the bubble and won't return for the remainder of the postseason, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

Cizikas was ruled out for a second straight game Sunday, but he'll head back to New York with Tom Kuhnhackl. The team didn't disclose the reason for Cizikas' departure. Ross Johnston and Michael Dal Colle are expected to rotate in Cizikas' place moving forward.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Unavailable for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Sunday's Game 4 versus the Lightning, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Cizikas was considered a game-time decision but was ultimately unfit to play. Ross Johnston filled expected to work on the fourth line in Cizikas' place Sunday.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas will be a game-time decision for Sunday's Game 4 against the Lightning, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Cizikas missed Friday's Game 3 with an undisclosed injury, but it sounds like there's a chance he'll be ready to return Sunday. The 29-year-old pivot has picked up two helpers while averaging 14:04 of ice time in 18 contests this postseason.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Misses Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (undisclosed) didn't play in Friday's Game 3 and his status for Sunday's Game 4 against the Lightning is uncertain, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

Head coach Barry Trotz mentioned after Game 3 that he would need to check on Cizikas' status Saturday, indicating the 29-year-old forward missed Friday's game with some sort of injury. Cizikas' role is bigger on the ice than in fantasy -- he has just two assists to go with 54 hits in 18 playoff contests. Michael Dal Colle and Derick Brassard replaced Cizikas and Andrew Ladd (healthy scratch) in Friday's game.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (leg) will be able to play if and when the season resumes, the Islanders' web site reports.

Cizikas was yet another Islander cut by a skate blade this season. That injury has healed and Cizikas will be a welcome addition to an Islanders team that has played terribly in his absence. The Islanders seem to play their best when the line of Matt Martin, Cal Clutterbuck and Cizikas is completely healthy, but all three have missed a good amount of time this season. If the season does resume and the Islanders do qualify for the playoffs, this line will need to be healthy and intact in order for the Islanders to make any sort of deep playoff run.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Won't travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (leg) did not join the Islanders for their four-game road trip, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Cizikas skated on his own in New York on Monday but it appears he'll miss at least the next four games while the Islanders are on the road. The 29-year-old forward has already missed the last 12 games with his leg injury.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Expected to join team on road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (leg) is expected to join the Islanders on their upcoming four-game road trip, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

The inclusion of Cizikas on the trip doesn't mean he will play Tuesday in Vancouver, just that he may play at some point during the trip. Cizikas has missed the last 12 games since taking a skate blade to the leg, and the Islanders have suffered in his absence to the tune of a 2-7-3 record.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Closer to a return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (leg) is hopeful to resume skating in the next day or two, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

A return to skating would be the next step in the recovery for Cizikas, who would then need to practice with the team before getting back in the lineup. The Islanders have cratered of late under injuries to players like Adam Pelech (Achilles) and Cizikas as the organization just doesn't have the depth to cover such losses. New York's on a five-game losing streak and would welcome the return of Cizikas, but that is still at least 7-10 days away.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Aims to start skating soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Lou Lamoriello hopes Cizikas (leg) will be able to skate in the "next week or so," Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.

Lamoriello also suggests that the 29-year-old pivot is a couple of weeks from returning to game action as he recovers from a leg laceration. The Islanders have been aided by trade-acquisition Jean-Gabriel Pageau filling into the third-line center role, and that also casts some uncertainty onto where Cizikas will line up when he's ready to return. That's of little concern to fantasy managers, however, as he's accrued just 14 points through 48 games, but deeper leagues that reward his hit total (133) should keep an eye on his recovery.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Still not skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (leg) has yet to resume skating with the Islanders, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Cizikas had his left leg sliced by the skate blade of Ivan Provorov of the Flyers on Feb. 11. The original prognosis was that Cizikas would miss 3-4 weeks due to the injury and that timeline still looks accurate. The Islanders haven't been the same team since the injuries to Cizikas and fellow fourth liner Cal Clutterbuck (wrist). That line is the Isles' identity, used to add or curb momentum by hitting anything and everything that moves. The Isles are hopeful that Cizikas and Clutterbuck will both be back with the team within the next 7-10 days.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Will miss 3-4 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas will be sidelined 3-4 weeks due to a leg laceration and has been placed on injured reserve.

Cizikas was bogged down in an eight-game pointless streak prior to getting hurt and will now have to wait until March before getting back onto the scoresheet. Given his recovery timeline, the center will almost certainly miss out on a second straight 30-plus point campaign but should still have enough time to hit 20. With Cizikas on the shelf, the club promoted Cole Bardreau from the minors, though Ross Johnston or Tom Kuhnhackl figures to get the first look at a spot in the lineup.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Forced to leave game early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas left the game early Tuesday after getting tangled up with Ivan Provorov of the Flyers along the boards, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Cizikas was in obvious pain and had to be helped off the ice. The play looked innocent enough and replay seems to show that the skate blade of Provorov might have caught Cizikas on his left leg. If this is the case and Cizikas is forced to miss time due to the injury, he will become the second member of the fourth line for the Islanders to miss time due to a slice from a skate blade. Cal Clutterbuck still hasn't returned to the team after suffering a similar injury to his wrist in December.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Another scoreless game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas failed to register a point as the Islanders defeated the Capitals 5-3 on Monday.

Cizikas has now gone seven straight games without a point. On the season, he has 10 goals and four assists in 46 games along with a rating of plus-12.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Back on ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (groin) took part in the morning skate for the Islanders on Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Cizikas took a deflected puck to the man region Saturday and has been forced to miss two games due to the injury. The fact that he took part in the morning skate, however, is a good sign that he should return to the lineup for the game Thursday versus the Rangers. Cizikas is expected to play on his normal line alongside Matt Martin and Leo Komarov.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (groin) won't play Tuesday versus the Red Wings, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Coach Barry Trotz stated that although Cizikas won't play Tuesday, the injury shouldn't keep him out of the lineup much longer. The next chance for Cizikas to play will be Thursday versus the Rangers.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Not out for warmups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (groin) isn't on the ice for warmups and won't play in Monday's game against the Rangers, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

Cizikas was injured in Saturday's game against Boston and will miss his second consecutive game dealing with the groin issue. With Cizikas out of the lineup, Leo Komarov will round out the centers on the team's fourth line. Expect another update on Cizikas' health ahead of Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Upgrades to game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to a previous report, Cizikas is considered a game-time decision for Monday's game versus the Rangers, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Cizikas took a shot to the groin during Saturday's loss to the Bruins, and he missed Monday's morning skate. Coach Barry Trotz is leaving open the possibility of the 28-year-old returning to face the cross-town rival, but the final verdict won't be revealed until warmups commence at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: On shelf Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas (groin) won't play in Monday's game versus the Rangers, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

Cizikas took a shot to the groin in Saturday's game versus the Bruins, and he'll need additional rest before getting back in the lineup. His next chance to return is Tuesday versus the Red Wings. Ross Johnston will enter the lineup in Cizikas' place.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Leaves game early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas was forced to leave Saturday'a game against Boston early after taking a shot to the groin, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Cizikas blocked a shot from David Pastrnak of the Bruins in overtime and unfortunately for him, that shot deflected off of his stick and caught him in the man region. Coach Barry Trotz believes Cizikas will just need some rest and should be able to play Monday versus the Rangers.

Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Lights lamp twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cizikas scored two goals in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Capitals.

He also added three shots, four PIM, two hits and a plus-2 rating to his ledger. Cizikas has four goals and five points over the last 10 games, which for the 28-year-old counts as a hot streak, and as long as he remains on the Isles' fourth line he'll be an unreliable fantasy asset.
