Cizikas Participates In Isles Practice

News: Casey Cizikas (upper body) practiced with the team Sunday, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas is expected to be healthy and available to the Islanders on Monday. He has missed the past two games after taking a blow from a stick to the head/shoulder area. Cizikas should once again center the fourth line for the Islanders.

Isles' Cizikas Won't Play Saturday

News: Casey Cizikas (upper body) will not return from injured reserve for Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas was able to practice Friday and took part in the Islanders' optional morning skate Saturday, but the team apparently wants to give him some additional time to recover. Monday's game against the Devils could represent a reasonable target for Cizikas' activation.

Casey Cizikas

Isles' Cizikas Practices Friday

News: Casey Cizikas (upper body) practiced Friday.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas had been skating on his own the previous two days, and his return to practice only offers further hope that his stay on injured reserve will be a brief one. He won't be eligible to return for Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, but could be activated immediately after.

Isles' Cizikas Back On Ice

News: Casey Cizikas (upper body) skated Wednesday, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas took a stick to the head/shoulder area Saturday and has been out of the lineup ever since. He is on the IR but could be back in the lineup as soon as this Saturday if all goes well.

Isles Place Cizikas On IR

News: Casey Cizikas (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, with a retroactive date of Dec. 6.
Analysis: The IR placement will keep Casey Cizikas out of the lineup for at least the next three games, as he won't be eligible for activation until Sunday. The Islanders haven't provided a clear recovery timetable for the fourth-line center, who has notched eight points in 26 games this season.

Isles' Cizikas Won't Play Tuesday

News: Casey Cizikas (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus the Wild, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas didn't make the trip to Minnesota so he is still suffering the consequences of getting hit up high with the stick of Vladimir Tarasenko. Although the Islanders have not released a timetable for his return he is not expected to be out long term.

Isles' Cizikas Forced To Leave Game Early

News: Casey Cizikas left Saturday's game after taking a stick to the face, according to Newsday.

Isles' Cizikas Scores Late Winner

News: Casey Cizikas scored a late-third-period goal to make the difference in a 2-1 win over the Senators on Thursday.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas has been a relatively frequent visitor to the score sheet of late, with seven points in his last 10 games. That's an enormous spike for Cizikas after he managed just a single point in his first 16 games.

Isles' Cizikas Heating Up

News: Casey Cizikas has tallied five points over the last five games for the Islanders.
Analysis: Though the Islanders value Casey Cizikas more for his forechecking skills in the team's bottom-six forwards, he's not a total drain on the offensive end. He might not enjoy a run of scoring production like this again this season, however, so his fantasy utility might be at its peak right now.

Casey Cizikas, C, NYI

Casey Cizikas

Isles' Cizikas Scores First Point

News: Casey Cizikas picked up his first goal (and point) of the season in Tuesday's 6-0 pasting of the Avalanche.
Analysis: He's known more for his fourth-line grinding than his offense, that's for sure. Casey Cizikas doesn't seem to have made any sorts of strides on the offensive end and doesn't provide much production anywhere else; hits are his best asset, but he's not even in the top five on his own team in that category.

Casey Cizikas, C, NYI

Casey Cizikas

Isles' Cizikas To Sit Wednesday

News: Casey Cizikas will be a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Ducks.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas will sit out for the first time this season, as coach Jack Capuano looks to give Eric Boulton some run in the lineup. The 23-year-old figures to return to action Thursday against the Kings, but don't expect him to deliver much usefulness in the fantasy realm. Cizikas has been held without a point in 11 games this season, and isn't an asset in hits or penalty minutes like many fourth-line types.

Casey Cizikas

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.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas is a high energy player that has added some juice to the Isles fourth line. This is a role he will likely stick with next season.

Isles' Cizikas Struggles Before Break

News: Casey Cizikas has five goals and seven assists through 58 games at the Olympic Break.
Analysis: The Islanders don't rely on Casey Cizikas for much offensive production, but he's had a particularly rough go of it lately, with no points and a minus-6 rating in his last six contests.

Isles' Cizikas Rejoins Team

News: Casey Cizikas (personal) rejoined the team Saturday and will be available for their game against the Devils, NHL.com's Brian Compton reports.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas missed Friday's practice for personal reasons. He's expected to assume fourth-line center duties Saturday night.

Casey Cizikas

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.

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, C, NYI

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.
Analysis: Casey Cizikas left Thursday's game after taking a shoulder to the jaw while he was attempting to hit Coyotes forward Connor Murphy. He'll sit out Saturday's game but his long-term status is not yet known.

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.
