Islanders' Nick Leddy: Offers helper in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy notched an assist and two hits in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Bruins in Game 2.

Leddy set up Kyle Palmieri's go-ahead goal in the second period. The 30-year-old Leddy has picked up three assists through eight playoff games. The Minnesota native has added 10 hits, nine blocked shots and a plus-3 rating while playing in a top-four role on the blue line.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Solid season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy finished the 2020-21 season with two goals, 29 assists, and a minus-3 rating in 56 games.

Leddy's 29 assists were the most he has posted since the 2017-18 season. Leddy is signed for next year, but the Islanders may try to unload his contract to create salary-cap room. If not, then Leddy will once about be a top-four defender for the team in 2021-22.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Delivers game-winner in overtime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Sunday's 1-0 overtime win over the Flyers.

Leddy's tally at 2:23 of overtime was the only goal in a game dominated by netminders Ilya Sorokin and Brian Elliott. The tally was Leddy's first point in nine games in April. The 30-year-old defenseman has cooled off with scoring, but he still has 26 points through 45 contests. He's added 62 shots on net, 46 hits, 42 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Scoreless in five straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy is struggling of late, as he hasn't registered a point in his last five games and has a minus-2 rating in that stretch.

This is probably just a blip on the radar, as Leddy has had a solid season with a goal, 24 assists and an even rating in 41 games. Even in this shortened season, Leddy is likely to post the most helpers he's had since dishing out 42 during the 2017-18 campaign. Leddy has been paired with Scott Mayfield for most of the season, which isn't likely to change as the season winds down.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Figures in on all three goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy picked up three assists and one shot on goal in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Flyers.

The veteran blueliner enjoyed his first multi-point performance since late February, figuring prominently in New York's third-period rally from 3-0 down. Leddy assisted on goals by Michael Dal Colle, Sebastian Aho and Oliver Wahlstrom in a span of less than seven minutes to tie the game, although Philadelphia would eventually reclaim the lead. The 29-year-old Leddy has enjoyed a nice season for the Islanders, collecting 21 points (20 assists) in 31 games to rank among the NHL's top 15 defensemen in scoring.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Registers power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy posted a power-play assist and two hits in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Penguins.

Leddy set up Oliver Wahlstrom for the opening tally at 19:20 of the first period. The 29-year-old Leddy finished February with nine helpers in 12 outings, a solid scoring rate for the second-pairing blueliner. He's at 14 points, 32 shots on goal, 23 hits and 19 blocked shots in 21 appearances overall. With eight of his points on the power play, Leddy has appeal for fantasy managers in need of some depth offense.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Snags helper as Isles prevail
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy produced an assist Tuesday in a 3-0 win over the Sabres.

Even though Leddy is just 29 years old, this is his 11th season in the NHL, and the American continues to demonstrate utility as a well-rounded blueliner. Leddy has produced one goal and seven helpers through 17 contests, including four points on the man advantage. A second-pairing role weakens his projected ownership rates, which is all the better when it comes to deploying Leddy in DFS tournament contests.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Snaps skid with PPG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy scored a power-play goal on four shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

Leddy got the Islanders on the board in the opening minute of the second period, sending a long shot through traffic that tied things up at 1-1. It was the first goal of the season for Leddy, who entered the night with four assists in eight games, half of which came on opening night. The 29-year-old has seen his point production decline in each of the last four seasons, from a career-high 46 in 2016-17 to just 21 last year.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Two assists on Opening Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy dished out two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Rangers.

Leddy paced the Islanders with 21:13 of ice time and had a hand in each of the team's first two goals. The mobile blueliner is set to see significant duty on the power play, and that role inflated Leddy's playing time in this one, as the Islanders were handed eight power-play opportunities and converted on two.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Playing time could increase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy could be in line for an even bigger role with the Islanders this season, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Last season Leddy only averaged 21:07 of ice time which was his lowest since the 2014-15 season, his first with the Islanders. Leddy is expected to play more minutes this season due to the loss of Johnny Boychuk and Devon Toews. With Barry Trotz, Leddy has gone from an offensive defenseman who was questionable in his own zone to a solid defender with offensive ability. In the three seasons, before Trotz arrived on Long Island, Leddy averaged almost 43 points per season but also averaged a plus/minus of minus-18, including cratering in 2017-18 with a -minus-42 rating. Under Trotz, Leddy has scored 26 and 21 points but also had a zero and minus-1 rating. The Islanders play from the goaltender on out under Trotz and Leddy has changed the way he plays the game for the better because of it.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Buries third playoff goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 8-2 loss to the Lightning in Game 1.

Leddy's tally in the third period cut the deficit to four goals, but Ondrej Palat answered just 45 seconds later to nullify any potential momentum for the Islanders. Through 17 contests, Leddy has three goals, two helpers, 33 blocked shots, 20 shots on net and a plus-8 rating.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Provides insurance goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy scored an empty-net goal on his only shot and added two blocks in a 4-0 win over Washington on Thursday in Game 5.

Leddy found the empty net from long range to give the Islanders a 3-0 lead with 2:13 remaining. The veteran defenseman also logged a positive plus/minus rating (plus-1) for the sixth straight game and now shares the team postseason lead in that category at plus-9.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Lights lamp on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy scored a power-play goal and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-2 win over the Capitals in Game 2.

Leddy got the Islanders on the board at 2:56 of the second period. His tally snapped a 39-game goal drought -- Leddy's last lamp-lighter was Dec. 21 in a loss to the Ducks. The goal was also the blueliner's first point in six playoff outings. He's added nine hits, eight shots on net, 10 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Joins practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy (undisclosed) took the ice for Wednesday's practice session.

Leddy joined his teammates at practice for the first time since training camps kicked off. The Minnesota native will no doubt be eager to break out of his 34-game goal drought. It's that lack of production that should cause fantasy players to hesitate in selecting the blueliner in their fantasy pools.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy (undisclosed) was absent from practice for a second straight day Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Due to the NHL's new policy on injury updates, the Islanders are unable to shed any light on why Leddy has yet to practice, but at this point there's no reason to believe he won't be available for the team's qualifying round matchup with the Panthers, which is still over two weeks away. The 29-year-old blueliner notched three goals and 21 points in 60 games during the regular season.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Pockets assist Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy posted an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks.

Leddy snapped a month-long point drought with his helper -- he'd come up empty in the 13 previous games. The 28-year-old defenseman has 21 points, 72 shots, 72 blocked shots and 62 hits through 60 appearances this season. It's all but certain Leddy will miss the 40-point mark for the second straight year.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: New defensive partner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: No goals in 15 straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy hasn't scored since Dec. 21 in Anaheim, a streak of 15 games.

Leddy had a disappointing campaign last season with only four goals and 22 assists in 82 games. 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. His plus/minus has improved, though, which could make Leddy palatable in the deepest of formats.

Islanders' Nick Leddy: Top pair defender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leddy has been moved to the top defensive pair for the 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.
