Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl (undisclosed) had successful surgery and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

General manager Lou Lamoriello didn't provide details regarding the nature of Kuhnhackl's ailment other than the fact that he has successful surgery. Even once fully fit, the winger is far from a lock for the lineup on a nightly basis and could serve as a healthy scratch from time to time.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Done for playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl (undisclosed) has left the bubble and won't return for the rest of the postseason, Brian Compton of reports.

Kuhnhackl has been a healthy scratch in every game since Aug. 5, but he has an apparent injury that will keep him out. Casey Cizikas (undisclosed) will also go back to New York.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl is expected to be available to play Saturday after missing the game Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

One thing to remember about Kuhnhackl is that he may not have played Thursday even if recovered as he had been a healthy scratch for the previous four games and the same may be true Saturday. However, the Islanders are reeling right now and may look for a change in the lineup to get out of their current team-wide slump. Kuhnhackl will also have a better chance of playing if Clutterbuck (undisclosed) is unable to suit up.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Sidelined with undisclosed issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl will not be in the lineup against the Senators on Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Kuhnhackl hasn't played in the team's last four games. Instead, he's served as a healthy scratch in the press box, so there was no guarantee the winger would have played anyway. Without a clear spot in the lineup, the German won't offer much in terms of fantasy value the rest of the way.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Seeing regular playing time again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl will be in the lineup for the third time in the last four games against Detroit on Friday.

Kuhnhackl had been a healthy scratch for six straight games before being given another chance to earn more playing time. The truth is, if not for several injuries to the forward group, Kuhnhackl might still be watching from the press box. On the season, Kuhnhackl only has three goals and six assists in 26 games and hasn't registered a goal in his last 10 games.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Not expected to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl is expected to be a healthy scratch Tuesday versus the Stars, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Coach Barry Trotz was openly critical of Kuhnhackl's performance after the 4-3 overtime loss to Vancouver on Saturday. The Islanders no longer have a playoff cushion and are fighting for every point, so Trotz will likely reward those who are playing well with more ice time and sit those who aren't.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Benched in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl was benched during the third period of the Islanders' 4-3 overtime loss to the Canucks on Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Kuhnhackl was on the ice for the first three goals that the Canucks scored and coach Barry Trotz wasn't about to make it four. Trotz stated after that the game that the team doesn't have any margin for error and if a player doesn't have it that night, then the team will have to move on without that player. Whether or not Kuhnhackl plays in the next game for the Islanders, Tuesday versus Dallas, remains to be seen.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: No goals in seven straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl hasn't lit the lamp in his last seven games for the Islanders.

Kuhnhackl has two helpers during this span but only three goals in 27 games for the Islanders this season and seven goals over 59 games as a member of the team. In a perfect world, Kuhnhackl wouldn't be playing this many games for the Islanders, but with Ross Johnston being the only extra forward on the roster and no one at the AHL level standing out offensively, coach Barry Trotz has been forced to use him more than he would likely prefer.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Set to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl is over his strain and expected to be in Saturday's lineup against the Bruins, Brian Compton of reports.

Kuhnhackl didn't end up needing to miss any time with the injury due to a short break in New York's schedule. His status isn't of much concern in the fantasy realm considering Kuhnhackl's impact on the scoresheet has been limited to three goals and one assist in 16 appearances this season.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Sits out practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl (strain) didn't practice on Friday with the Islanders, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.

According to coach Barry Trotz, the injury isn't considered to be serious and Kuhnhackl should be able to play Saturday versus Boston. Kuhnhackl has only played 16 games this season and only has three goals and an assist in those contests. Ross Johnston is likely to slide into the lineup should Kuhnhackl need another couple of days to recover.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Scores equalizer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl lit the lamp and fired three shots on net in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Devils.

Kuhnhackl tied the game off a feed from Michael Dal Colle with 5:46 remaining in the third period, and Anders Lee finished the job in overtime. The 27-year-old endured a lengthy lower-body injury, but he's had a knack for scoring lately with three goals and a helper over the past seven games. For fantasy purposes, however, it's tough to depend on Kuhnhackl while he's averaging 11:28 per game.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Nets first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl scored a goal on two shots in a 3-1 win over the Wild on Sunday.

The 27-year-old finally got off the scoring schneid in his 11th game of the season, jumping on a loose puck and beating Devan Dubnyk from the high slot. The goal, which was Kuhnhackl's first since last March, gave the Islanders a 3-1 lead with 2:31 left in regulation. Kuhnhackl is a bottom-six role player with 50 points in 215 career games and can be left on the fantasy waiver wire.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Records shorthanded helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl picked up a shorthanded assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

The 27-year-old set up Casey Cizikas for a tally late in the third period. The helper was Kuhnhackl's first point of the year in only 10 appearances after he missed nearly two months with a lower-body injury. He's developed an injury-prone reputation, and his limited role will also keep fantasy owners away in most formats.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup for Thursday's matchup with Boston, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Kuhnhackl recently completed a four-game AHL conditioning stint, so he shouldn't have any limitations against the Bruins. The 27-year-old winger has only totaled nine points in 42 games with the Islanders over the past two campaigns, so he can be ignored in all fantasy formats.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Back from conditioning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders recalled Kuhnhackl (lower body) from his conditioning stint with AHL Bridgeport on Monday.

Kuhnhackl suited up in four minor-league games, recording two assists and two PIM. It appears he's back to full strength, so an IR activation is imminent. The 27-year-old is expected to fill into the bottom six once he's ready, and his fantasy upside is limited, scoring nine points over his last 42 NHL games.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Headed for minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl (lower body) was designated for long-term injured reserve and sent down to AHL Bridgeport for a conditioning assignment.

Kuhnhackl has already been out of the lineup since Oct. 25 versus Ottawa, so his placement on long-term IR won't affect his recovery timeline. The Sound Tigers are in action versus AHL Utica and Syracuse on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Assuming Kuhnhackl plays in both games, he could be in contention to suit up for the Islanders as early as Monday's matchup with Tampa Bay.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Doesn't make trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl (lower body) didn't accompany the Islanders on their two-game road trip to Detroit and Montreal, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Kuhnhackl returned to practice Friday, so it's a little bit of a surprise that he didn't travel with the team. His next chance to play will be Thursday versus the Golden Knights.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl (lower body) was able to practice with the Islanders on Friday, Denis Gorman of Newsday reports.

Kuhnhackl hasn't played since suffering an injury Oct. 25 in Ottawa. Even if he's deemed healthy enough to return to the lineup, he won't be a lock to play versus Columbus on Saturday.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Resumes skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnhackl (lower body) has started to skate on his own, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

This would seem to be the first step in his recovery, with the next being a return to practice. There is no word yet on when that may occur, however. Kuhnhackl has missed the last seven games due to the injury and has yet to earn a point this season in the six games he has played. What may be most important to note here is that even when healthy, Kuhnhackl may once again not be a regular in the lineup as the Isles will have several forwards that have the same skill set and not all can play at once.

Islanders' Tom Kuhnhackl: Headed to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders placed Kuhnhackl (lower body) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Kuhnhackl is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with the lower-body injury he suffered during Friday's game against the Senators, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 27-year-old winger's absence will test the Islanders' depth up front, but it won't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only collected nine points in 42 games over the past two campaigns.
