  • Islanders' Johnny Boychuk: Tallies goal versus Hurricanes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/18) Boychuk scored a goal during a 3-0 victory over the Hurricanes on Friday.

    The goal was the defenseman's first point since returning from a lower-body injury last week. It was also his first goal since Nov. 23. Boychuk has just four goals and 10 points this season, but it's been another injury-riddled one for the 34-year-old. Boychuk has never played 80 games during a single season in his entire career.

    Islanders' Johnny Boychuk: Lifted from IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/18) Boychuk (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Friday.

    It appears that Boychuk will play Friday evening against the Red Wings, putting an end to a streak of 18 missed contests. Perhaps no one is more excited about his return than the Islanders' goaltenders, as Boychuk is a fearless shot blocker. He needs to redirect the puck only 23 more times to finish with 100-plus blocked shots for the fifth straight season, and maybe it would be seven straight campaigns accomplishing that feat had it not been for the lockout-shortened 2012-13 hockey year, when he was with the Bruins.

    Islanders' Johnny Boychuk: Nearing return to lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/18) Boychuk (lower body) is considered doubtful for Thursday's matchup against the Sabres, but he hasn't been officially ruled out.

    It appears as though Boychuck is more likely to retake the ice Friday than he is Thursday, but more information on the subject should surface closer to the opening faceoff, when lines for the game are confirmed. If he's unable to go again, Dennis Seidenberg will likely draw in for the Islanders.

    Islanders' Johnny Boychuk: Still not ready

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/5/18) Boychuk (lower body) is skating with the team but still isn't ready to play, Newsday reports.

    Boychuk has been out of the lineup since Dec. 27 (15 games) and his absence has been felt by the Isles. With him in the lineup the Isles have a GAA of 3.49 and without him it's 4.00. The loss of Boychuk and Calvin de Haan (shoulder) has forced the Islanders to rely on their young defenders to play more minutes than expected and it's showing up not only in the goals they give up, but also in the amount of shots that opposing teams are putting on net. The Isles are hopeful that Boychuk can play either Monday versus Nashville or Thursday in Buffalo.

    Islanders' Johnny Boychuk: Out of action Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/29/18) Boychuk (lower body) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Panthers.

    Coach Doug Weight said that Boychuk is skating, but he didn't give a timetable for his return. The Islanders also play Wednesday against Maple Leafs. While Boychuk hasn't been ruled out for that game just yet, since he can't go Tuesday it seems like the odds are good that he'll be out Wednesday as well. The 34-year-old has already missed 13 games with this injury.
