Isles' Okposo Finished In 2013-14

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) and the Isles' other injured players won't return for the final games of this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: With that, Kyle Okposo's breakout campaign is officially concluded, with the winger -- who turns 26 years old on Monday -- having collected an eye-catching 69 points in 71 games.

Isles' Okposo To Miss Fourth Straight

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) will miss his fourth straight game Wednesday against the Senators.
Analysis: The Islanders have been mum so far on Kyle Okposo's recovery from the lower-body that has kept him out for the last week. Since the Islanders aren't contending for a playoff spot this season, it could be the case where the team will simply keep Okposo out of the lineup down the stretch to preserve his health heading into the offseason.

Isles' Okposo Out Thursday

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) is out for Thursday's game against the Lightning.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo played through the issue Tuesday but won't be able to do the same Thursday. He should still be considered day-to-day, as there's no indication that the injury is serious. With Okposo and a number of other teammates sidelined, the Islanders will likely have trouble getting the puck past Tampa Bay's Ben Bishop, despite winning three of their previous four games.

Isles' Okposo Could Be Out Thursday

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) may be out of the lineup Thursday against the Lightning, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Although Kyle Okposo was able to play Tuesday after coming into the game with concern regarding the injury, Thursday's emergency call-up of forward John Persson would seem to suggest Okposo could be ailing. We'll find out official word on Okposo's status during pregame warmups.

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo To Play Tuesday

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) is on the ice for pregame warmups and looks like he'll play Tuesday.
Analysis: His absence from Tuesday's morning skate would seem to be precautionary, as Kyle Okposo skated on the top line during warmups, as per usual. He could see a slight limitation in his minutes from coach Jack Capuano, but fantasy owners are more than likely going to want his scoring potential in their lineups.

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo Misses Morning Skate

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) didn't participate in the Islanders' morning skate Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Missing the morning skate doesn't mean that Kyle Okposo won't play versus the Canes, but it's certainly not a step in the right direction either. The Islanders will likely see how Okposo feels during the pregame skate before determining his availability for the game.

Kyle Okposo, RW, NYI

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo Misses Practice Monday

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) didn't practice Monday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo is traveling with the team and is expected to play Tuesday versus the Hurricanes. The Islanders were likely just giving Okposo another day off to recover from a lower-body injury suffered last week.

Islanders' Okposo Suits Up Sunday

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) suited up Sunday against the Blue Jackets and saw 17:45 worth of ice time.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo did not practice Saturday after leaving Friday's practice with a lower-body injury, but evidently it was a minor issue, as he was back in action Sunday.

3/22/2014

Kyle Okposo, RW, NYI

Kyle Okposo

Isles Hold Okposo Out Of Saturday Practice

News: Kyle Okposo (lower body) did not practice Saturday with the Islanders.
Analysis: Despite Kyle Okposo's absence from the team session, coach Jack Capuano suggested he could play Sunday against the Blue Jackets if he's feeling better in advance of the game. However, given the Islanders' status as a non-playoff contender at this stage in the season, it wouldn't be a surprise if the team kept him out Sunday just to be on safe side.

Islanders' Okposo Injured During Practice

News: Kyle Okposo left Friday's practice with a lower-body injury, Newsday reports.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo joins a crowded Islanders injury report, and details on his injury have been sparse. The Islanders are off both Friday and Saturday, heading into Sunday's game against the Blue Jackets.

Kyle Okposo, RW, NYI Isles' Okposo: Four-Game Streak

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo: Four-Game Streak

News: Kyle Okposo led the Islanders to a 4-1 win over the Sabres on Saturday night. He scored a goal that stood up at the winner and added an assist.
Analysis: He's having a great season -- 69 points in 68 games -- and the goal is the 99th of his career. Oh yah -- he's on a four-game, eight-point streak, too. #breakout

Okposo's Career Year Continues In Isles' Loss

News: Kyle Okposo assisted on two of the Islanders' three goals in Friday's 4-3 loss to San Jose, giving him six points and five assists in the last three games.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo is playing at a point-per-game pace with 67 points in as many games as he establishes himself as one of the league's breakout players. Look for Okposo's production to continue, as he's shown the ability to put up numbers with a hodgepodge of different linemates this season.

Islanders' Okposo Notches Three Points

News: Kyle Okposo picked up three helpers against the Canucks on Monday.
Analysis: Thomas Vanek is gone, but Kyle Okposo is keeping up his nearly point-per-game pace, as he has 65 points in 66 contests.

Okposo Scores Lone Goal For Isles In Blowout Loss

News: Kyle Okposo scored the Islanders' only goal in their 6-1 loss to the Devils on Saturday.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo's goal gives him an incredible 60 points in 61 games, but expect that near point-per-game level of production to drop off swiftly in the games to come now that John Tavares is no longer centering his line. While Okposo has certainly turned some heads with his impressive play this season, playing alongside Brock Nelson represents a massive downgrade from Tavares.

Kyle Okposo

Career Year Continues For Isles' Okposo

News: Kyle Okposo scored the Islanders' lone goal in Friday's loss to the Rangers, giving him seven points in the last five games.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo remains one of the season's biggest values. He's been remarkably consistent and is showing the promise many saw in him when he was a first-round pick several years ago. He's in a tremendous situation playing with John Tavares and Thomas Vanek.

Analysis: Kyle Okposo now has 57 points in 54 games, which puts him in the top 10 in points in the entire league. He also has 14 points in his last 10 games, and 15 penalty minutes as well.

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo Extends Points Streak To Five Games

News: Kyle Okposo had a goal and assist in Saturday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo's string of dominance continues, as he's supplied three goals and five assists over his last five games. His 54 points on the season have now surpassed his previous career best of 52 points in 2009-10, a feat that required 27 more games for Okposo to achieve.

Kyle Okposo

Career Year Continues For Isles' Okposo

News: Kyle Okposo notched a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over the Rangers, giving him five points in the last three games.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo's been scoring steadily all year, but has been particularly awesome since the beginning of December; all in all, he's ripped off 28 points in his last 24 games, and he's now just one point short of his career-high mark of 52, set back in 2009-10.

News: Kyle Okposo paced the Islanders with a goal and assist in Monday's shootout win over the Flyers.
Analysis: The goal came on a power-play with 2:58 left in regulation for Kyle Okposo, who tied the game 3-3 and would later net the winning score in the shootout. This type of performance is what fantasy owners have come to expect from the 25-year-old, who has 20 goals and 29 assists in 50 games and is just three points away from matching his career best.

Isles' Okposo Expected To Play Tuesday

News: Kyle Okposo (personal) is expected to play Tuesday vs. the Maple Leafs, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: After missing Monday's game to witness the birth of his child, Kyle Okposo flew to Toronto to rejoin his teammates Tuesday morning. The Isles' attack certainly didn't miss a beat without him Monday, potting a season-high seven goals in a win over the Stars.

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo (Personal) Out Monday

News: Kyle Okposo will miss Monday's game against the Stars due to the birth of his child, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: With Kyle Okposo confirmed to be out of the lineup, Brock Nelson will join John Tavares and Thomas Vanek on the Isles' top line. Okposo can be considered day-to-day, as it won't be surprising if he's back on the ice for Tuesday's tilt in Toronto.

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo A Game-Time Decision Monday

Analysis: Kyle Okposo has been a productive scorer again this season for the Islanders with 42 points in 43 games that includes 16 goals and 26 assists. With the impending birth of his child, his status will likely be determined closer to game-time depending on how the important life event plays out for him.

Isles' Okposo Continues Torrid Pace

News: Kyle Okposo had an assist, a plus-2 rating, and the OT winner in Thursday's game against Chicago.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo is as hot as they come. (Though not hot enough for the U.S. Olympic team.) He's got points in eight straight games, tallying six goals and seven assists over that stretch. (What more does the guy have to do?!?)

Kyle Okposo

Okposo Flying For Isles

News: Kyle Okposo registered his second-consecutive three-point effort in Tuesday's win over Boston, giving him eight points over the last four games.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo is developing into the player the Islanders believed he could be when they burned a high pick on the former Gopher star. Okposo is enjoying life alongside John Tavares and is playing at just under a point-per-game with 40 points through 41 tilts.
