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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Leddy notched an assist, four shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Leddy had the secondary assist on a Ross Johnston goal in the first period. Through 28 games this year, Leddy has 15 points, 38 shots, 36 blocked shots and 29 hits. With four points over his last three games, the 28-year-old may interest DFS owners for Sunday's contest against the Wild.
Leddy scored an even-strength goal and added two power-play assists in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Ducks.
The blueliner missed three games earlier in the month with a lower-body injury, and after going scoreless in two contests following his return, Leddy finally made an impact. He has three goals and 14 points through 26 games on the year.
Leddy (lower body) is on track to play Tuesday against the Predators, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
Leddy has missed the Islanders' last three games due to a lower-body issue, but he shouldn't have any limitations Tuesday, as he's expected to skate on New York's top pairing and second power-play unit against Nashville. The 28-year-old American has notched 11 points in 23 games this campaign.
Leddy (lower body) has a chance to play Tuesday versus the Predators, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Coach Barry Trotz actually used the words "in the mix" to illustrate the chances of Leddy playing. It would seem that even if Leddy does not play Tuesday, then a return Thursday in Boston would be likely. Leddy is usually paired with Johnny Boychuk, and while Boychuk provides more of a defensive presence, Leddy may be the Isles' best defender at skating the puck out of their zone. If and when Leddy returns, Noah Dobson will be the player likely to find himself once again watching games from the press box.
Leddy (lower body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Sabres, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Leddy took warmups, but it was determined he'll have to miss a third straight game. The 28-year-old blueliner will aim to get back into the lineup Tuesday against the Predators, and Noah Dobson will stay in for the time being.
Leddy's (lower body) status for Saturday's matinee matchup with the Sabres will be determined after pregame warmups, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Leddy's missed the Islanders' last two games due to a lower-body injury, but he's clearly closing in on a return to action. If he's able to go, the 28-year-old blueliner will likely bounce Noah Dobson from the lineup.
Leddy (lower body) is on the ice for morning skate, but he isn't expected to be available for Thursday night's matchup with Florida, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Leddy will miss a second straight game Thursday, but he's now participated in back-to-back practices, so he should be ready to return sooner rather than later. The 28-year-old blueliner will be reevaluated ahead of Saturday's clash with the Sabres.
Leddy (lower body) was back at practice with the Islanders on Wednesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Leddy missed the Islanders' win over the Lightning on Monday due to the injury. Coach Barry Trotz wouldn't say after practice if Leddy would play Thursday versus the Panthers, but a return to practice is certainly a step in the right direction. If Leddy is unable to play Thursday, then a return Saturday versus Buffalo would seem probable.
Leddy (lower body) won't suit up in Monday's clash against Tampa Bay, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Coach Barry Trotz considers Leddy day-to-day after suffering a lower-body injury in Saturday's loss to Dallas. Noah Dobson will draw into the lineup in Leddy's place. Leddy has accrued 11 points through 23 games, and he'll aim to get healthy for Thursday's matchup against the Panthers.
Leddy was forced to leave Saturday's game in Dallas early with what looked like a leg injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Leddy took a hit at center ice and immediately went down. He was able to get back to the bench but did so without putting any weight on his left leg. The Islanders are traveling to Tampa Bay and aren't expected to practice Sunday which means there may not be an update as to Leddy's status until Monday.
Leddy posted a power-play assist and two PIM in Monday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.
Leddy had the secondary helper on Jordan Eberle's tally in the second period. Leddy hadn't found the scoresheet since posting three assists versus the Penguins on Nov. 19. The defenseman is up to 10 points in 20 appearances, with 25 shots on goal and 24 blocked shots to round out his stat line.
Leddy (lower body) is expected to play Saturday versus Columbus, Denis Gorman of Newsday reports.
Leddy missed the Islanders' loss to the Kings on Wednesday after aggravating a lower-body injury. However, he was able to practice in full Friday and should rejoin the lineup versus the Blue Jackets. The veteran blueliner is expected to be paired with his usual partner in Johnny Boychuk. On the season, Leddy has two goals, nine points and a rating of plus-6 in 18 games.
Leddy (lower body) is doubtful to play versus the Kings on Wednesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Leddy was unable to practice Tuesday due to the injury and also didn't participate in the morning skate Wednesday. Coach Barry Trotz stated that Leddy would be a game-time decision and he may very well be that, but the smart money is on Leddy returning Saturday versus Columbus.
Leddy (undisclosed) is considered a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against the Kings, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Coach Barry Trotz said Leddy aggravated a past injury during Monday's loss to the Ducks. The 28-year-old missed three games earlier in November with a lower-body injury, so it sounds like this affliction is related. If Leddy's unable to suit up, Noah Dobson figures to slot into the lineup.
Leddy picked up three assists and added three hits, two shots, two PIM, a blocked shot and an impressive plus-5 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins.
The points were his first in four games since he returned to the lineup from a minor lower-body injury, but the blueliner is clearly 100 percent now. Leddy has two goals and nine points in 15 games on the year, supplementing that production with 20 shots on net, 18 blocked shots, 16 hits and a plus-8 rating.
