Islanders' Austin Czarnik: Jettisoned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The islanders demoted Czarnik to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

The 28-year-old suited up in game action for the second time this season Monday against Buffalo, going pointless across 9:11 of ice time. Czarnik will have another chance to suit up in Thursday's game against Boston, but he'll need to be added to the active roster in order to do so.

Islanders' Austin Czarnik: Up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik was promoted from the taxi squad Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Leo Komarov was sent back to the taxi squad, so it appears Czarnik will crack the lineup for Monday's game versus the Sabres. Czarnik has played just one game this season, logging 5:21 of ice time and a blocked shot.

Islanders' Austin Czarnik: Goes to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik was designated for the taxi squad Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

The Islanders have the day off, and Czarnik could be called back up for their next game Tuesday versus the Sabres. The 28-year-old is expected to be a bubble player all year. Over 122 NHL games, he's posted 38 points and 20 PIM.

Islanders' Austin Czarnik: Rises to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik was promoted from the taxi squad Sunday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

The Islanders sent three forwards back to the taxi squad in a corresponding move, so it looks like Czarnik will make his season debut in Sunday's game against the Flyers. The 28-year-old suited up in just eight NHL games last season, producing three points and firing nine shots on net.

Islanders' Austin Czarnik: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik was placed on waivers by the Islanders on Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Czarnik could still end up on the opening night roster for the Islanders should he clear waivers and Casey Cizikas (hand) isn't able to play. If not, he is likely ticketed for either the taxi squad or Bridgeport of the AHL.

Islanders' Austin Czarnik: Pens two-year deal with Islanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik signed a two-year contract with the Islanders on Tuesday.

Czarnik spent most of the 2019-20 season in the minors, racking up 33 points in 31 games with AHL Stockton, but he also appeared in eight games with the Flames, picking up three points over that span. The 5-foot-9 forward will almost certainly spend most of the 2020-21 campaign with the Islanders' AHL affiliate, but he'll likely get the occasional call-up to the big club as well.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Exits bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik has exited the bubble in Edmonton to attend to a family matter.

If and when Czarnik re-enters the bubble, he'll need to self-quarantine for four days, which means he'll miss Calgary's next three games at a minimum. The 27-year-old pivot has yet to draw into the lineup this postseason, so there's no reason for fantasy players to track his status.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Waived by team Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik (lower body) was designated for waivers Wednesday, Sportsnets' Chris Johnston reports.

Czarnik previously spent some time in the minors on a conditioning assignment but will now get some extra work in with the Heat. The center will likely make his way back to the NHL before the end of the year once he gets back up to game speed. Prior to getting hurt, the Detroit native was on a three-game point streak which he will no doubt be eager to pick back up down the road.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Recalled from conditioning stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calgary recalled Czarnik (lower body) from his conditioning assignment with AHL Stockton on Thursday, but he'll remain on long-term injured reserve for the time being.

Czarnik drew into three contests during his stint in the minors, notching three points over that span, but the Flames evidently don't think he's ready for NHL action just yet. Another update on the 27-year-old forward's status should surface once he's activated off IR.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Sent out for conditioning assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik (lower body) was reassigned to AHL Stockton on a conditioning assignment Wednesday.

Czarnik has been out of action since Oct. 24 versus Florida, but is taking strides in his recovery with his conditioning stint. The Heat are in action versus AHL Ontario and AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday and Saturday, respectively. While Czarnik was originally expected to be out until late December, his conditioning assignment could be an indication he is ahead of schedule.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Likely out at least two months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bill Peters said Austin Czarnik (lower body) is not expected back in the lineup until late December, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

While the nature of Czarnik's injury is unknown, we now have a timetable. If the forward is able to stay on that schedule, he would miss about two months. Alan Quine and Tobias Rieder will likely cover Czarnik's position in the lineup while he's out.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Put on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik (lower body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Friday.

The Flames called up Alan Quine from the AHL ranks in a corresponding move. Czarnik had been seeing action on the second power-play unit in addition to his fourth-line role, totaling two goals and an assist through eight games.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Exits Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik suffered a lower-body injury in Thursday's game against Florida and won't return.

It's unclear how Czarnik picked up the injury, but the injury occurred very late in the second period. With the 26-year-old missing the remainder of the game, the team will continue with 11 forwards, and Sam Bennett is likely to get the call should there be any power-play time. Czarnik should be classified as day-to-day until more specifics surface regarding the injury.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Opens 2019-20 account
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Capitals.

Czarnik's tally at 16:25 of the second period evened the score at two goals apiece, but it was a short-lived leveler, as Alex Ovechkin sniped a go-ahead goal for the Capitals 10 seconds later. Czarnik has points in consecutive games after going scoreless in five straight to start the year. He skated on the second line with Mikael Backlund and Matthew Tkachuk in this contest, but it's unlikely he'll stay in that role long-term.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Helper for first point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik produced an assist in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Ducks.

Czarnik has appeared in the last five games and six times overall this season, managing just the one assist and five shots on goal. He was a healthy scratch for some games, but either way, he's yet to make much of a fantasy impact.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Often healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik has drawn into only two of the Flames' six games this season.

Czarnik has only two shots on goal and an average ice time of 6:10 in his appearances, so he's being used less than sparingly. The 26-year-old forward had 18 points in 54 contests last season, but with the Flames' offense primarily limited to the top line so far, it's no surprise to see a goose egg in the points column for Czarnik.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Returning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik (ankle) is expected to return for Sunday's game versus the Jets.

Czarnik missed Friday's game versus the Oilers with an ankle injury sustained earlier in the week, but he'll return to the lineup for Sunday's game. It'll be an important test for Czarnik, who will be competing with many of the other players in Sunday's game for a bottom-six role come Opening Night.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik (ankle) won't play in Wednesday's game versus the Sharks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Czarnik scored two goals in Monday's 4-3 win over the Canucks, but a late blocked shot leaves him too sore to go for Wednesday's contest. Matthew Phillips will be in the lineup in his place. Czarnik's next chance to return to game action comes Friday against the Oilers.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Two goals in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik scored twice in a 4-3 win over the Canucks on Monday.

One of Czarnik's tallies came on the power play, and he added an even-strength goal as well on an assist from Tobias Rieder. Czarnik filled a bottom-six role for the Flames last season, contributing six goals and 18 points in 54 games. The right winger is likely to return to a similar role, especially after his hot start to the preaseason.

Flames' Austin Czarnik: Assists in four straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Czarnik managed an assist and a blocked shot in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Ducks.

Czarnik has stayed in the lineup while the Flames rest bigger-name players, and he's picked up one helper in each of his last four games. For the year, he's at 18 points in 53 games, which isn't enough to interest most fantasy owners despite it being a career high for the undrafted 27-year-old.
