Komarov was promoted from the taxi squad ahead of Thursday's game versus the Bruins, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Komarov is expected to slot into the lineup Thursday. The 34-year-old contributes in a checking role, as he's recorded two assists and 23 hits over nine games this season.
Komarov was assigned to the taxi squad Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Komarov won't play in Monday's game versus the Sabres, and Austin Czarnik is expected to take his place. When Komarov cracks the lineup, he's counted on to inject a physical presence, as he's posted two points and 23 hits through nine games.
Komarov was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Komarov is expected to suit up for Saturday's game versus the Penguins. The 34-year-old inserts a physical component into the lineup. Through eight games this year, he's piled up 20 hits and five PIM.
Komarov was assigned to the taxi squad Tuesday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Komarov cleared waivers Saturday and is eligible to go to the taxi squad. He won't play in Tuesday's game against the Sabres because Anthony Beauvillier (lower body) is back in the lineup.
Komarov cleared waivers Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
This is not surprising, as it's not the first time the Isles have placed Komarov on waivers, and they have been unsuccessfully trying to trade him for quite some time now. This move was made so that the team can move Komarov between the big club, the taxi squad and possibly the AHL. Komarov doesn't provide much to the Islanders outside of veteran influence and has yet to register a point in six games this season. Still, coach Barry Trotz seems to prefer playing the veteran rather than trusting his younger forwards.
Komarov was designated for waivers Friday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.
Considering Komarov has played in six of the Islanders' last seven games, this should be considered a technical move that will allow the organization to continue moving the winger between the active roster and taxi squad. The 34-year-old Russian is still looking for his first point of the year, having generated just six shots, five PIM and 15 hits while averaging 12:05 of ice time in six contests.
Komarov was promoted from the taxi squad Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Komarov sat out Sunday's loss to the Flyers, opening the door for Dmytro Timashov to enter the lineup. Timashov was benched in the game, so it looks like Komarov should have an opportunity to earn his spot back in Tuesday's matchup against the Sabres.
Komarov was sent to the taxi squad Sunday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Komarov played in each of the last three games, averaging 11:53 per contest. Austin Czarnik and Dmytro Timashov were promoted from the taxi squad for Sunday's game against the Flyers.
Despite being waived Tuesday, Komarov is on the Islanders' 23-man roster ahead of Thursday's season opener against the Rangers.
Komarov was likely waived so he can be moved freely between the NHL roster and taxi squad for the foreseeable future, but he's on track to skate on the Islanders' fourth line during Thursday's contest. The veteran winger picked up 14 points in 48 games last campaign.
The Islanders waived Komarov on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
This news doesn't come as a surpsise, as it's already been reported that Komarov won't be a full-time player for the Islanders in 2020-21, so he could be headed to New York's taxi squad assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed. The 33-year-old winger totaled just 14 points in 48 games last campaign.
Komarov is not expected to have a regular role with the Islanders this season, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
There are several reasons for this. The Islanders are up against the cap and likely will exceed it once they sign Matthew Barzal. The Isles may also elect to go with a more skilled player to play alongside Jean-Gabriel Pageau. That skill may come from Simon Holmstrom or Oliver Wahlstrom as the Islanders need offense from wherever they can get it.
Head coach Barry Trotz said Komarov (undisclosed) will be available for Monday's Game 1 versus the Lightning, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Komarov was unable to play in Game 7 versus the Flyers for an unspecified reason, but Trotz said the winger is healthy enough to play. There's a chance he's a healthy scratch to start the Eastern Conference Final, but he's been a steady physical presence with 51 hits over 12 August games, so it's likely that he returns to a third-line role.
Komarov (undisclosed) didn't participate in warmups and isn't expected to play in Saturday's Game 7 versus the Flyers, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear why Komarov isn't playing Saturday, and the Islanders will lose some of their physical game as a result. Michael Dal Colle is expected to fill in for Komarov.
Komarov scored a goal on four shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Flyers in Game 3. He also doled out three hits.
WIth the score tied 1-1 late in the second period, Komarov swept a backhander past Carter Hart with just 5.1 seconds remaining on the clock. It proved to be the game-winner as the Islanders claimed a 2-1 series lead. It was the first goal of the playoffs for the 33-year-old Komarov, who hadn't found the net in his previous 15 games.
Komarov (face) returned to practice Wednesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Komarov hasn't skated since training camp began July 13 after taking a puck to the face during Phase 2 training, but he's evidently feeling well enough to get back out there, albeit with a full face mask. The 33-year-old winger, who notched 14 points in 48 regular-season contests, will slot into a bottom-six role for the Islanders' qualifying round series against the Panthers.
Komarov was not on the ice with the Islanders on Monday after taking a puck to the face during Phase 2, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Komarov went pointless in his last seven outings prior to the league going on hiatus. Unfortunately, teams and the league won't be announcing the details of player injuries this postseason, so fantasy players may want to avoid selecting the winger in their pools in the event he is going to be out long term.
Komarov was moved up to the second line with Brock Nelson and Anthony Beauvillier, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
The move may tell you all you need to know about the problems for the Islanders on offense. Komarov only has 10 goals in 127 games as an Islander and has never eclipsed the 20-goal mark in a season, so it seems a little desperate to have him in a top-six role.
Komarov scored a goal on three shots and dished out three hits in Monday's 5-3 win over Washington.
Komarov scored in the opening minute of the second period to give the Islanders a 4-1 lead and that goal proved to be the game-winner. It was only the second tally of the year for the 33-year-old, who is shooting a career-low 2.9 percent. There's nothing to see here from a fantasy perspective.
Komarov has one goal, nine assists and a rating of plus-9 in 33 games this season.
Those are probably not the numbers the Islanders had in mind when they signed Komarov to a four-year, $12 million contract before the 2018-19 season. The veteran forward is at his best when he's being a pest and getting under the other team's skin, but still, the Islanders undoubtedly expected more offense than 10 points in 33 games.
Komarov posted a goal, an assist and three shots in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Red Wings.
The game was well out of hand before Komarov got in on the action, as he assisted Noah Dobson's goal -- the team's sixth -- and scored the team's eighth goal of the game. That was Komarov's first marker of the year, and he's been solid offensively lately with five points and a plus-6 rating over the past nine contests.
