Isles' Jurcina Has Goal And Assist

News: Milan Jurcina had a goal and an assist in the Isles' final game of the season Saturday.
Analysis: The goal was only Milan Jurcina's third of the season. He is unlikely to be back on The Island next season, but should be able to hook up with another team looking to bolster the back of their defensive corps.

Isles' Jurcina Returns Thursday

News: Milan Jurcina will return from a two-game absence due to a lacerated elbow for Thursday's game against the Canadiens, according to Newsday.
Analysis: With just six points in 41 games, Milan Jurcina probably isn't going near anyone's fantasy lineup, but the Isles need him back on their blue line with Dylan Reese out for at least a month with a knee injury. Jurcina will pair with Andrew MacDonald on the second pairing.

Isles' Jurcina Out With Elbow Laceration

News: Milan Jurcina is out of the lineup with an elbow laceration, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.

Isles' Jurcina Scoreless In His Last 10 Games

News: Milan Jurcina hasn't registered a point in his last 10 games.
Analysis: Normally this wouldn't be worth reporting as Milan Jurcina is far from an offensive threat, but he was receiving top power play time and even scored a couple of goals on the PP, but that seems to be over now. Jurcina, like many Isles, is also a -16, not exactly great numbers for a free agent to be.

Milan Jurcina

Isles' Jurcina Getting Power Play Time

News: Milan Jurcina has two goals in his last four games for the Islanders.
Analysis: Milan Jurcina has been receiving time on the Islanders power play of late as the team looks to spark that unit. It's unlikely he will keep this role all season, but for now, he has it.

Isles' Jurcina Back In Action

News: Milan Jurcina will be in the lineup Thursday, according to a team press release. It will be his first game since the tail end of last season, as hip/groin issues have sidelined him over the last two seasons.
Analysis: Milan Jurcina is not a huge scorer, but he's a nice presence on the blue line. When healthy he's an upgrade over Mike Mottau, who will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Pittsburgh.

Islanders' Jurcina Will Not Play Saturday

News: Milan Jurcina (groin) will not play in Saturday's season opener against the Panthers, Newsday's Arthur Stape reports.

Isles' Jurcina Practices Friday

Islanders' Jurcina Practices Thursday

News: Milan Jurcina (groin) practiced with his teammates Thursday, ESPN.com's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: After skating earlier in the day, Milan Jurcina was allowed to return to team drills. His status for Saturday's season opener is still questionable, but it appears he has a better chance of suiting up than he did a few days ago.

Isles' Jurcina Improving

News: Milan Jurcina (groin) is improving, but still unlikely to play Saturday, according to Newsday.

Isles' Jurcina Out Of The Lineup

News: Milan Jurcina (groin) is once again on the shelf, according to Newsday.

Islanders' Jurcina (Groin) Out 1-to-2 Weeks

News: Jurcina will miss the next 1-to-2 weeks after suffering a groin injury Tuesday, according to the Islanders' official Twitter page.
Analysis: Jurcina is not a big fantasy contributor, but the Islanders have had much more success when he plays than when he does not. The Islanders are a bit banged up on the defensive end right now, so the team will have to rely on its younger defensemen for the next few games.

Isles' Jurcina Leave Tuesday's Game

News: Jurcina will not return to Tuesday's game against the Leafs due to a groin injury, Newsday's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: Jurcina's 13 points in 36 games are marginal from a fantasy perspective, but it's worth noting that the Isles are 20-12-3 with Jurcina in their lineup and 3-18-4 when he has been out of it.

Milan Jurcina

Islanders' Jurcina Sets Up A Score Tuesday

News: Jurcina assisted Rob Schremp for the final goal of the game in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Jurcina is off the radar as it relates to fantasy hockey but the Isles must be relieved to see him healthy again after he missed more than two weeks with an upper-body injury.
