Isles Extend Boychuk Seven Years, $42 Million

News: Johnny Boychuk signed a seven-year, $42 million contract extension with the Islanders on Thursday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: It was initially considered a radical idea for the Islanders to trade for the soon-to-be-free agent Johnny Boychuk in October following a losing season, but the surprising successes of both team and player prompted both parties willing to extend the union further. The $6 million cap hit is a hefty price to pay for an over-30 player in the midst of his first 30-point campaign, but even if the offense dries up by the latter end of the deal, Boychuk should still remain tough on the defensive end. With Nick Leddy agreeing to an extension a couple weeks earlier, the Islanders will now have their top defensive pairing in tact for several years to come.

Two Helpers For Isles' Boychuk

News: Boyhuck notched a pair of assists Thursday evening in a 4-3 win over Nashville.
Analysis: He picked up secondary assists on the game-tying and lead-taking tallies. Johnny Boychuk's already sitting on a career high with 32 points in 56 games this year, and he's been a reliable presence for your fantasy nets.

Boychuk Tallies Two Points In Isles' Win

News: Johnny Boychuk scored a goal, added a power-play assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's victory over Nashville.
Analysis: He continues to build on his career-high point total, which is now at 28. Prior to Thursday's game, however, February had been a cold month for the blueliner, as he'd previously tallied just a lonely goal in nine games since the calendar flipped to the season's fifth frame.

Isles' Boychuk Fires Off Eight Shots Saturday

News: Johnny Boychuk fired off eight shots but didn't pick up any points in a loss against his former Bruins mates Saturday.
Analysis: The 31-year-old has been held off the score sheet for four consecutive games, but it shouldn't put a damper on what has already amounted to a splendid campaign. With 25 points in 42 games, Johnny Boychuk has already established a new career best for scoring in a season.

Isles' Boychuk (Undisclosed) Returns

News: Johnny Boychuk (undisclosed) returned in the third period of Thursday's game against the Flyers, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk appeared to injured his leg in the second period of Thursday's contest, and it appeared to possibly be serious after being helped off the ice. However, he has returned, so the injury must not have been serious in the end.

Isles' Boychuk Helped Off Ice With Injury

News: Johnny Boychuk had to be helped off the ice after blocking a shot in the second period of Thursday's game against the Flyers.
Analysis: Different reports indicate different injury spots, but it appears the overlying theme is that it is somewhere on his leg. The team will likely run tests on the ailing area, and report back with an update at some point in the near future, but the fact that he needed to be helped off the ice could indicate a more serious injury.

Isles Trying To Re-Sign Boychuk

News: The Islanders and Johnny Boychuk have begun negotiations on a new contract, according to the SNY.tv.
Analysis: These negotiations aren't expected to end anytime soon, but while it once looked unlikely that Johnny Boychuk would end up re-signing with the Islanders, it may now be just as unlikely that he leaves. The Isles have also received inquiries if they would be interested in trading Boychuk should these negotiations break down, but that seems highly improbable at this time.

Isles' Boychuk Notches Two Helpers

News: Johnny Boychuk collected two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: That's the second straight two-assist game for Johnny Boychuk, and he also went plus-2 (bringing his mark for the last three games to plus-8) while notching a season-high six blocked shots. In the process, Boychuk set a new career high in points with 24, surpassing last year's 23.

Isles' Boychuk Grabs Two Points In Win

News: Johnny Boychuk tallied a pair of assists and registered a plus-4 rating in 17:21 worth of ice time in Monday's 7-4 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk has been productive all season long, but has picked up his play of late with eight points in his last 11 contests. The 31-year-old is just a point away from tying his career-high of 23 from last season, and is one of the better options from a fantasy perspective on the blueline.

Isles' Boychuk Scores Power-Play Goal

News: Johnny Boychuk scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Sunday's loss to the Oilers.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk now has four points in his last four games, giving him four goals and 14 assists in 29 games on the season. All of his goals and 12 of his 18 points have come with the man advantage, making him a stud in leagues counting that category. On pace for 40 points and contributing with 58 hits and 53 blocked shots, Boychuk is a great fantasy option in almost every league.

Isles' Boychuk Buries OT Winner

News: Johnny Boychuk scored the game-winning goal on an overtime power play Monday against the Capitals.
Analysis: His offense had been near-nonexistent over four games since returning from IR, so it's good to see Johnny Boychuk score a big goal. He's still on the finest scoring pace of his career, but it was slowing even before he got hurt. Exercise caution.

Isles Activate Boychuk

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Friday.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk will return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Wings for the first time since Nov. 26, an absence that spanned nine games. The Islanders will also get Travis Hamonic (upper body) back Friday, putting the team's top two defensive pairings back in tact.

Isles' Boychuk Should Return Friday Versus Detroit

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) is expected to play Friday versus the Red Wings, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk has been nothing short of fantastic for the Islanders, adding toughness to their defense and a rocket shot from the point. Boychuk is one of the big reasons why the Isles are playing as well as they are and will be looking at a big pay day once the season is over.

Isles' Boychuk Expected To Return Over Weekend

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) is expected to return for either or both of the Islanders' back-to-back weekend games.
Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano said after Wednesday's practice that Johnny Boychuk was "coming along" well with his recovery from the injury, foreshadowing an impending return for the blueliner. Prior to suffering the injury, Boychuk had seen his production slow from his red-hot first few weeks of the season. Even so, he still has an impressive 14 points and plus-7 rating over 21 contests.

Isles' Boychuk Practices Friday

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) resumed practicing with the team Friday, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk will miss his eighth consecutive game Saturday due to the injury, but it appears a return could be forthcoming for the defenseman. He appears to be further behind in his recovery than fellow injured blueliner Travis Hamonic, but if he's able to continue to practice over the next couple of days, he could return to the lineup at some point next week.

Isles' Boychuk Is Skating

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) skated Wednesday, according to Newsday.
Analysis: The Islanders have been a bit lost defensively with the loss of Johnny Boychuk and Hamonic as a big part of their physicality on defense is missing. While the skating is a good first step, there is still no word yet on when he might return to the team.

Isles' Boychuk Not Close To Return

News: Coach Jack Capuano said after Friday's practice that Johnny Boychuk (upper body) "isn't going to be playing anytime here soon," Scott Charles of Islanders Insight reports.
Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano had the same prognosis for Travis Hamonic (upper body), leaving the Isles without a pair of their top-four defenseman for extensive time. The loss of Johnny Boychuk is of greater importance for fantasy owners, as he had been enjoying the best offensive season of his career with 14 points in 21 games.

Isles' Boychuk Not Skating Yet

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) has yet to resume skating, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk will miss his fourth consecutive game Thursday, and based on the lack of progress thus far, he appears to be at risk of missing several more contests. He's one of four Isles blueliners dealing with an injury at the moment, with his loss probably being the most significant.

Isles Place Boychuk On IR

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, ESPN.com's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk's placement on IR will be retroactive to Nov. 27, meaning at the very least, he'll miss his fourth straight game Thursday versus the Senators. It's generally expected that Boychuk won't be ready to go for Saturday's game against the Blues, either, but that could change if the blueliner is able to get back on the ice in the next couple of days.

Isles' Boychuk Misses Practice

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) was not at Monday morning's practice, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The blueliner has racked up two goals and 12 assists through 21 games with his new team, but looks doubtful at this point to suit up for Tuesday's game against the Senators. If that's the case, Brian Strait will take Johnny Boychuk's place on the back end again.

Islanders' Boychuk Out Saturday

News: Johnny Boychuk (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Devils.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk will miss his second straight game as a result of his injury. Brian Strait will make another start in his place Saturday.

Isles' Boychuk Ruled Out Friday

News: Johnny Boychuk will miss Friday's game against the Capitals with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk had been missing practices recently with a suspected knee issue, so the fact that he'll sit out Friday with an upper-body injury comes as a surprise. The blueliner, who has been highly productive since coming over in a trade with the Bruins late in training camp, will be considered day-to-day for the time being. Brian Strait takes his spot in the lineup Friday.

Isles' Boychuk Returns To Practice

News: Johnny Boychuk returned to practice Thursday, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk is dealing with a lower body injury so the Islanders have been giving him time off from practice in order to heal. He will play Friday versus the Penguins.

Isles' Boychuk Misses Practice

News: Johnny Boychuk missed practice Wednesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk is still dealing with a knee injury -- nothing considered serious -- but the Islanders are trying to give him a day off when they can. He is fully expected to be on the ice when the Isles play their next game Friday versus the Penguins.

Offense Picking Back Up For Isles' Boychuk

News: Johnny Boychuk assisted on one of the Isles' two goals in their loss to the Lightning on Saturday.
Analysis: Since missing one game last weekend due to a knee injury, Johnny Boychuk has reemerged as an impact player on the offense end, notching an assist in each of his last three contests. He's not quite lighting the world on fire like he did over the first week of the season, but he's still notched an impressive two goals and 10 assists over 16 games.
