Isles' Cizikas Nursing Back Injury

News: Casey Cizikas is dealing with a back injury, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: It's not clear when Casey Cizikas first sustained the injury, but he hasn't resumed skating yet and seems unlikely to play in the Islanders' final preseason game Friday. Cizikas looks like a safe bet to earn a role as the Islanders' fourth-line center if he's healthy, but with that no longer guaranteed, an opportunity could exist for Ryan Strome to claim that role.

Cizikas Impresses Islanders In The Early Going

News: Casey Cizikas has impressed the Islanders coaching staff so far this preseason, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas plays a high energy up tempo game that coach Jack Capuano prefers. He made his mark on the penalty kill when first called up to the club but has gradually shown that he can handle more responsibility. The problem for Cizikas and many other Islanders is that they have a glut of good young forwards, not all of which will be able to make the team.

Isles Give Cizikas Qualifying Offer

News: Casey Cizikas was given a qualifying offer by the Islanders on Monday, according to Newsday.

Isles' Cizikas Struggles Before Break

News: Casey Cizikas has five goals and seven assists through 58 games at the Olympic Break.

Isles' Cizikas Misses Friday's Practice

News: Casey Cizikas missed Friday's practice for personal reasons.
Analysis: It's unclear if Casey Cizikas' personal obligations will prevent him from suiting up Saturday against the Devils. His status should be known following morning skate.

Casey Cizikas, C, NYI

Casey Cizikas

Isles' Cizikas Ready To Play Friday

News: Casey Cizikas (jaw) will be back in the lineup Friday vs. the Rangers.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas will sub back in for Peter Regin after missing the previous two games with an injured jaw. The center is averaging just 12:52 of ice time and has seven points in 33 games, making him interesting largely only in deeper leagues.

Casey Cizikas

Isles' Cizikas Remains Out Tuesday

News: Casey Cizikas (jaw) will not return to the lineup Tuesday for the Islanders, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas was thought to be ready to return for Tuesday's game, but reportedly is still not feeling well enough. The Islanders do not play again until Friday, so it will give him some extended rest to prepare to play.

Casey Cizikas

Isles' Cizikas Likely To Play Tuesday

News: Casey Cizikas (jaw) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday, according to Newsday.
Analysis: It looks like Casey Cizikas and the Islanders caught a break here as it was originally feared that Casey may have broken his jaw. Cizikas will have to wear a face guard for the immediate future but assuming he can get used to the extra hardware, he should be good to go Tuesday versus Tampa Bay.

Isles' Cizikas Out Saturday

News: Casey Cizikas (jaw) will not play Saturday, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.

Isles' Cizikas Injures Jaw Thursday

News: Casey Cizikas injured his jaw in the first period of Thursday's game and will not return, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: It appeared as though Casey Cizikas took a shoulder to the jaw from the Coyotes' Connor Murphy while he was attempting a hit. The Islanders will evaluate him to determine whether he suffered any sort of fracture, but it's too early yet to make any assumptions about the injury.

Isles' Cizikas Held Scoreless In Thursday's Win

News: Casey Cizikas racked up three hits but no shot attempts in 15:52 of ice time Thursday against the Oilers.
Analysis: The nearly 16 minutes of ice time was Casey Cizikas' highest total since the season opener, putting his average at 14:31 for the season. Though that amount of playing time is a big step up from last season, most of his action has come as a member of the Islanders' underwhelming third and fourth lines, amounting to few scoring opportunities for Cizikas. He has just one point through seven games this season.

Isles' Cizikas Puts Icing On The Cake

News: Casey Cizikas scored his second goal of the series and added two assists as the Islanders tied the series with Pittsburgh at two apiece Tuesday.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas scored the final goal of the game, which put the bow on the present for the Islanders and may have also been the straw that broke the camel's back as far as Marc-Andre Fleury's status in the Pittsburgh nets.

Casey Cizikas

Isles' Cizikas Will Play Thursday

News: Casey Cizikas (upper body) will play against Toronto on Thursday, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas missed the second half of the game Tuesday after blocking a shot, but is good to go for the game against the Leafs.

Isles' Cizikas Injured Tuesday

News: Casey Cizikas suffered an upper-body injury during Tuesday's game against the Panthers and will not return, Katie Strang of ESPN.com reports.

Isles' Cizikas Scores First NHL Goal

News: Casey Cizikas scored the first goal of his career Tuesday in a win over the Penguins.
Analysis: This one's gonna be memorable, coming as it did as the opening salvo in a big statement game for the Isles. Casey Cizikas stole the puck from Paul Martin and scored on a wraparound. The soon-to-be-22-year-old has 21 points in 31 games for AHL Bridgeport this year and picked up 45 in 52 games there last year, so he's got some offensive chops.

Islanders Send Down Cizikas

News: The Islanders have returned Casey Cizikas to AHL Bridgeport, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas, who ended up tied for Bridgeport's scoring lead (44 points in 51 games), was given a chance to play in the NHL with the Islanders in late February and managed four assists in 15 games during his stay with the big club. Now that the Islanders' season is finished, Cizikas is headed back to Bridgeport to see more ice time.

Islanders' Cizikas Back From Flu

Analysis: Casey Cizikas missed the past two games with a flu bug after making his NHL debut just a couple weeks prior. He should be fine going forward.

Islanders' Cizikas Out Saturday

News: Casey Cizikas (flu) will miss Saturday's game against New Jersey, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: It's not clear how long Casey Cizikas has been sick. Consider him questionable for Sunday's game against the Rangers.

Casey Cizikas

Isles' Cizikas To Make NHL Debut Friday

News: Casey Cizikas will make his NHL debut Friday against the Rangers, ESPN's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas was strong for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL this season, posting 44 points (15G, 29A) and a plus-25 ratio. It will be interesting to see what the 20-year-old can do with his opportunity in the NHL, but it's hard to imagine anything close to his AHL production with less ice time.

Cizikas Recalled By Islanders

News: The Islanders have recalled Casey Cizikas from AHL Bridgeport, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas, who leads Bridgeport in scoring with 44 points in 51 games, is rewarded for his fine AHL play with a promotion to the big club, where he figures to serve as a depth forward.

Islanders Sign Cizikas Before Deadline

News: Cizikas signed an entry-level contract with the Islanders on Tuesday, Globe & Mail writer James Mirtle reports.
Analysis: In addition to averaging over a point per game, Cizikas skated to a plus-43 rating for his junior team last year. He'll presumably need at least a year in the AHL before he'll seriously compete for playing time in the NHL, but Cizikas looks like a decent prospect for the Islanders.

Contract Deadline Looming For Cizikas And Islanders

News: The Islanders and Cizikas have until June 1 to reach a contract agreement, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Both sides believe a deal will get done; if, however, a deal is not reached, Cizikas would go back into the 2011 NHL Entry draft. Cizikas posted 29 goals and 64 points in 52 games as captain of his junior team this past season.
