Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo Stays Hot With Goal Sunday

News: Kyle Okposo tallied a goal in Sunday's Game 3 win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo has registered a point in each of the Isles' three playoff games to date and has picked up at a goal or assist in five consecutive contests dating back to the end of the regular season. Though he's no longer positioned next to John Tavares on the Isles' top line, Okposo has shown enough effectiveness on the second trio to remain a worthy choice for daily lineups during the postseason.

Okposo Sets Up Goal In Isles' Win

News: Kyle Okposo notched an assist and went plus-2 in Wednesday's Game 1 victory over the Capitals.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo's production has generally slowed since he returned from a detached retina in early March, but he raised his performance as the regular season drew to a close, notching a goal and two assists in his final two games. While he's no longer skating next to John Tavares as frequently, Okposo can probably be relied upon for capable secondary scoring on the Isles' second line.

Isles' Okposo: Two Goals In Last Three Games

News: Kyle Okposo scored the game-winning goal on the power play in Saturday's 3-0 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: He has two goals in his last three games; both of the goals came on the power play. Kyle Okposo would have been a 70-75 point player if he'd stayed healthy this season.

Kyle Okposo, RW, NYI Isles' Okposo May Be Taken Off Top Line

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo May Be Taken Off Top Line

News: Kyle Okposo may be taken off the top line with John Tavares, according to Newsday.
Analysis: The Islanders offense has been struggling mightily of late with only 10 goals in their last seven games and Kyle Okposo has been part of the problem with only one goal since his return from an eye injury. Okposo is not the sole reason for the Isles scoring woes but could move down to the second line with Frans Nielsen who he has had success with in the past.

Isles' Okposo Gets First Point Since Return

News: Kyle Okposo put the finishing touches on the Isles' victory over the Devils on Saturday, tallying an empty-net goal in the game's final minute.
Analysis: It's the first point for Kyle Okposo since returning from a nearly two-month absence due to a detached retina. After averaging just under a point per contest before missing time, Okposo has struggled to reintegrate himself into the lineup, as his return coincided with four straight losses before the Isles ended the streak Saturday. While an empty-net goal shouldn't be viewed as a sign that he's back on track, Okposo provided further encouragement with five shot attempts on the night, marking his highest total in his first five games back with the team.

Isles Activate Okposo

News: Kyle Okposo (eye) was activated off IR by the Islanders on Tuesday.
Analysis: With Kyle Okposo set to return to action Tuesday against the Rangers, the team sent forward Kael Mouillierat to AHL Bridgeport in a corresponding move. Expect the winger, who has 14 goals and 44 points over 46 games, to be plugged back into a top-line role right away. He missed the last 22 games with the detached retina, which required surgery.

Isles' Okposo To Return Tuesday

News: Kyle Okposo (eye) will return to action Tuesday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo, who will thus come off IR in advance of Tuesday's contest, hasn't played since January 19th, but he'll return to the Isles' lineup second on the team in scoring, with 44 points in 46 games to date.

Isles' Okposo Could Return Tuesday

News: Kyle Okposo (eye) could return for Tuesday's matchup versus the Rangers, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo will need to be cleared by the Isles' medical staff before the team will make their final determination on a return to the lineup. Keep in mind that the Islanders are known for being conservative with their injuries and prefer to wait an extra game or two rather than risk re-injury, so Okposo is far from guaranteed to be activated from IR in advance of Tuesday's game.

Isles' Okposo Skates Saturday Morning

News: Kyle Okposo (eye) skated with the Islanders on Saturday morning, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo continues to recover from a detached retina and seems to have made at least some level of progress, as he previously hadn't been cleared to skate with his teammates. The winger, who has missed the Islanders' last 20 games, is still without a firm timetable for a return.

Kyle Okposo

Isles' Okposo Joins Team

News: Kyle Okposo (eye) has joined the team on their current road trip, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo started skating on his own Monday but is now ready to participate in team practices. He is still likely to miss the game Saturday versus the Panthers but perhaps he could return mid to late next week.

Isles' Okposo Making Progress

News: Kyle Okposo (eye) was scheduled to skate before the Islanders' practice Monday morning, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: It hasn't been revealed if that plan was executed, but it's nonetheless a positive sign that Kyle Okposo is at least warranting consideration to get back on the ice. He'll likely require a few days of skating on his own before receiving clearance to practice, potentially putting him on pace to return to action by mid-to-late March.

Isles' Okposo No Closer To A Return

News: Kyle Okposo (eye) is no closer to a return to the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo is able to do off ice work but still hasn't resumed skating, something he's not expected to do for another 7-10 days. That timetable puts a possible return to lineup at or around mid-March if no setbacks occur.

Isles' Okposo Still Not Skating

News: Kyle Okposo (eye) still isn't skating for the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo had surgery to repair the detached retina over three weeks ago, and there has always been some concern over the 6-to-8 week timetable. That timetable could be adjusted depending upon the severity of the injury, and as of right now, the best-case scenario is that he will return to team in about three weeks. The Isles haven't offered much of an indication on when his exact return will be.

Isles' Okposo Has Detached Retina

News: The upper-body injury that Kyle Okposo suffered was a detached retina in his eye, reports ESPN New York.
Analysis: The severity of the detachment is not known at this time, but coach Jack Capuano previously said Kyle Okposo would miss six-to-eight weeks with the injury. If Okposo fails to notice much progress with his vision, the timetable could extend longer, but the Islanders seem content to take a wait-and-see approach at this stage.

Isles' Okposo Placed On IR

News: Kyle Okposo, who is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks with an upper body injury, has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 19, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: The transaction is merely a formality, as Kyle Okposo is expected to miss the entire month of February, at the very least.

Isles' Okposo Out 6-8 Weeks

News: Kyle Okposo will miss 6-8 weeks with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano delivered the news Monday, and Kyle Okposo's loss represents a major hit to the Isles' offense. The winger has recorded 14 goals and 44 points through 46 games to date, while working on the team's top line.

Isles' Okposo Misses Practice Monday

News: Kyle Okposo missed practice Monday with an upper-body injury, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: There is no word yet on when Kyle Okposo suffered the injury or how long he may be out of the lineup. Long Island is currently being hit by a blizzard that could result in a postponement Tuesday's game versus the Rangers, thus potentially allowing Okposo a few more days to get healthy.

Isles' Okposo: Two More Points

News: Kyle Okposo's hot hand continued Saturday when he scored a goal and added an assist in a 6-4 loss to Montreal.
Analysis: He has six points, including five games, in his last two games and 16 points, including nine assists, in his last 13. Hot is hot.

Islanders' Okposo Terrorizes Pens With Four Goals

News: Kyle Okposo scored four goals, including his first career NHL hat trick, and recorded six shots on goal in Friday's win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: What time is it? It's five past Fleury. Thanks to Kyle Okposo's dominant outing, the Islanders are now the first team to 30 wins this season. The 26-year-old has been hot of late, recording six goals and 13 points in his last 11 games. The first-line winger now has 41 points (13 goals) in 44 games on the season, to go with a minus-1 rating. With 147 shots on goal -- ninth most in the NHL -- Okposo is a dynamic scoring threat every night he's in action. On pace for 75 points with a red-hot Islanders team, Okposo is an automatic roll every game.

Three-Game Point Streak For Isles' Okposo

News: Kyle Okposo netted a goal on one of his five shot attempts in Saturday's win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: In so doing, the winger extended his point streak to three games. He's very quietly chugging along at a point-per-game pace, though he's currently on track to fall short for the 20-goal mark.

Isles' Okposo Assists On Two In Win

News: Kyle Okposo set up both of John Tavares' goals in Friday's 2-1 win over the Flames.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo's two helpers helped him stay even with Tavares for the team scoring lead, as both top-line forwards have notched 34 points in 38 games. Increased proficiency as an assist man have helped Okposo compensate for his dramatic dip in goal-scoring this season. He's found the net just three times in his last 26 games and is shooting just 6.5 percent this season, a significant drop from the 13.8 mark he posted during the 2013-14 campaign.

Isles' Okposo Helps Out Saturday

News: Kyle Okposo registered two assists in Saturday's loss to the Sabres.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo's goal scoring has taken a dive this season, but he's still on pace to produce 73 points, which would surpass last season's career-best of 69. If John Tavares can manage to stay healthy for the full campaign, there's little reason to doubt Okposo's ability to remain a consistent performer. He's gone no more than three consecutive games without a point this season.

Shots Piling Up For Isles' Okposo

News: Kyle Okposo found the net on one of his seven shot attempts in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Kyle Okposo has racked up an impressive 15 shot attempts over the past two games, during which he's recorded two points. He's been doing his best to show that his 69-point breakout from 2013-14 was no fluke, as he's clipped along at close to a point-per-game pace (29 in 34 contests) with no prolonged offensive droughts this season.

Isles' Okposo Notches Two More Points

News: For the second time in three games, Kyle Okposo had a two-point night -- a goal and an assist -- against the Blues on Thursday, only to see his team take another loss.
Analysis: Just like Saturday against these same Blues, Kyle Okposo's two points weren't enough. Nonetheless, he remains one of the more reliable offensive sources out there.

Isles' Okposo Pockets Two Helpers Saturday

News: Kyle Okposo assisted on two goals in Saturday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Both assists came on the power-play, giving him 11 points on the man advantage for the season. He's done well to build on his 69-point 2013-14 breakout, contributing five goals and 24 points over 27 contests.
