Shane Prince: Moving over to Switzerland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince signed a contract with HC Davos of Switzerland on Saturday, TSN reports.

The New York native compiled 38 points (12 goals, 26 assists) over 128 career contests in the NHL. It's quite unfortunate that Prince didn't pan out, especially since he held so much promise as the 2011 second-round (61st overall) selection, with his career originating in Ottawa. Perhaps he'll find a second wind playing overseas after injuries limited him to 14 games with the Islanders in 2017-18.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Injury-plagued season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince only had one goal and one assist in 14 games for the Islanders this season.

Prince suffered several injuries that took him out of the lineup for extended periods of time, but even when healthy, he was far from an automatic start for the Islanders. He is a restricted free agent this summer and could find himself playing for his third organization next season.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Back in tow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (lower body) will return Thursday against the Rangers.

Prince hasn't played since Jan. 18 so he could be a bit rusty upon his return. He'll skate in the bottom six with very little to offer fantasy owners. Prior to getting hurt, Prince only had two points in 12 games for the 2017-18 campaign, but that he worked so hard to come back for a team that won't be in the playoffs speaks volumes about his work ethic and dedication to the game of hockey.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Has begun skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (lower body) is skating with the team, Newsdayreports.

Prince has been out of the lineup since Jan. 21 due to the injury. Coach Doug Weight stated Tuesday that Prince should be ready to return to the lineup "sooner than later". He could make his return to the lineup Friday versus Toronto or Saturday in New Jersey.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (undisclosed) has yet to be cleared to play and will remain out of the lineup against the Wild on Monday.

Considering there have been no reports of Prince returning to practice -- or even skating on his own -- fantasy owners can probably expect him to be out for a while. The team has also not provided a timeline for when the winger might be eligible to return, which certainly doesn't indicate good news on the injury front. Coach Doug Weight should provide an update once the team is ready to take the Rochester, New York native off injured reserve.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Still out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (undisclosed) won't play Sunday against the Flames.

Prince has missed the last nine games and has been on injured reserve since Jan. 31. His next chance to return is Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, but fantasy owners likely aren't going to be too concerned. Prince has two points in 12 games.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

Since the Isles used a retroactive designation, Prince is technically eligible to return at any point, but it's probably safe to assume he won't be available against the Maple Leafs on Wednesday. The organization didn't announce a specific timeline for the winger, who has already missed four games due to his undisclosed ailment. In a corresponding move, Andrew Ladd (upper body) was activated off IR.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (undisclosed) isn't in the projected lineup for Tuesday's game against the Panthers.

Prince's continued absence shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups, as the 25-year-old winger has only notched one goal and two points in 12 games this campaign. The Islanders should release an update on the 2011 second-round pick's status once he's ready to return to game action.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Ruled out of road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (undisclosed) will miss the Islanders' next three games at a minimum.

Prince's absence will test the Islanders' depth up front, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as the 25-year-old American has only notched one goal and two points in 12 games this campaign. Prince's next chance to return won't come until Jan. 30 against the Panthers, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the Islanders place him on injured reserve while he's on the shelf.

Islanders' Shane Prince: WIll play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (upper body) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Bruins.

Prince exited Tuesday's game against the Devils early due to an upper-body injury, but the ailment he sustained during that contest clearly wasn't overly serious. The 25-year-old winger, who's notched just one goal and two points in 11 games this season, will skate with Brock Nelson and Michael Dal Colle on the Islanders third line against Boston.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Leaves game early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince was forced to exit the game Tuesday versus New Jersey after suffering an upper-body injury, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

This is certainly unwelcome news for both Prince and the Islanders, as the team came into the game shorthanded with only 11 forwards. The Isles are dealing with several injuries to their forward group, as Josh Bailey (lower body), Andrew Ladd (upper body), Casey Cizikas (hand), and Nikolay Kulemin (shoulder) are all out of the lineup. Losing Prince isn't a huge blow, as the third-line winger only has six goals in 61 games.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Scores in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince scored his first goal of the season Saturday as the Islanders defeated the Rangers 7-2.

The goal was the first for Prince in nine games this season and only his second point of the season. He is currently playing on the third line for the Isles but several injuries to key forwards are likely to see quite a few line changes over the coming days and weeks for the team. Prince could even be a healthy scratch once all of the regular forwards return to action.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Slots into supporting role in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince logged just 11:10 of ice time during Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim.

The winger hadn't suited up for the Islanders all season because of an ankle injury, and he played just four contests with Bridgeport during his conditioning stint in the AHL. As a result, it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with Prince in all settings, especially since he's not currently projected to receive top-six minutes or power-play looks.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince was recalled from his conditioning assignment with AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday.

In four games with the Sound Tigers, Prince notched a pair of helpers and a minus-2 rating. With the winger back in the fold, it seems likely he will make his 2017-18 debut versus the Ducks on Thursday -- probably in favor of Steve Bernier. If he can stay healthy, Prince could top his career highs from last season (five goals and 13 helpers).

Islanders' Shane Prince: Set for conditioning stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (ankle) was activated and subsequently loaned to AHL Bridgeport for a conditioning assignment Sunday.

Prince has yet to suit up for the Islanders this season, though he has been practicing fully since Nov. 17. Expect the 2011 second-round pick to spend at least a week in the minors before rejoining the Isles, who rank second in the league in scoring with 3.55 goals per game.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Returns to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday.

Prince being able to take part in a full-contact practice is a positive sign that his rehabilitation is going well. Once the Islanders feel that he is in game shape, then a decision will be made on whether he best serves the organization at the NHL or AHL level.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Ready for contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (ankle) is expected to take part in a full contact practice Wednesday.

This would seem to be the next step in his progression, as he has been skating with a non-contact jersey with the team for about a week. Prince is still likely headed for a conditioning stint in the near future before a possible return to the Islanders in early December.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Practicing with team Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (ankle) practiced with the Islanders on Monday, Cory Wright of the Islanders official site reports.

This would seem to indicate that Prince may be slightly ahead of his scheduled December return date. A conditioning stint in AHL Bridgeport could still be in his near future before the Islanders have to decide where he should play. The Islanders don't seem to have a roster spot open right now for Alan Quine or Prince, but that could change in a hurry once injuries strike.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Skates Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (ankle) skated with coaches during a private session Friday.

While it's a good sign that Prince is once again skating, he's still not expected to be able to return to the Islanders until December at the earliest. Prince had five goals and 18 points in 50 games for the Islanders last season and even when healthy, he's not guaranteed a spot on the roster.

Islanders' Shane Prince: Still in boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prince (ankle) remains in a walking boot with no timetable to resume skating, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

Although Prince is not expected to be ready until mid-December at the earliest, fantasy owners will likely still be concerned with the fact that he can't pinpoint when he will get back on the ice. Even when healthy, the winger's role is uncertain at best -- he periodically suits up on the top line with John Tavares, but Price also often slots in as far down as the third line.
