Top Casey Cizikas News

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Warming up Saturday

    Cizikas (hand) is set to play Saturday versus Tampa Bay, per Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Cizikas was ruled a game-time decision after missing Thursday's contest with a hand injury, though it appears the veteran center will suit up in his regular fourth-line role. The 32-year-old Cizikas has six goals and 12 points in 44 games this season.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Game-time decision Saturday

    Cizikas (hand) will be a game-time decision Saturday versus Tampa Bay, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    Cizikas will partake in the pregame warmup, per coach Patrick Roy, before a decision is made on his status. Cizikas sat out Thursday's 4-0 loss to St. Louis after being injured Tuesday versus Pittsburgh. He has six goals, six assists and 97 hits in 44 games this season. Should Cizikas return to the lineup, Kyle MacLean could be a healthy scratch versus the Lightning.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Out Thursday

    Cizikas (hand) isn't available for Thursday's game in St. Louis. He'll be evaluated after the Islanders return to New York, per Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Cizikas was injured when he took a shot off his hand during Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over Pittsburgh. After Thursday's contest, the Islanders will return home to host the Lightning on Saturday. In the meantime, Kyle MacLean, who was summoned from AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday, is projected to draw into the lineup with Cizikas unavailable.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Leaves Tuesday's game

    Cizikas blocked a shot with his hand in Tuesday's game versus the Penguins, and there was no update on his status after the contest, Ethan Sears of the New York Post reports.

    Cizikas went to the locker room a couple of times Tuesday, but the hand issue is of the most concern. It's unclear if he'll be able to play Thursday versus the Blues. With Hudson Fasching (illness) also questionable, the Islanders may need to call up a forward or play with seven defensemen.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Nets goal in return

    Cizikas scored a goal on two shots and blocked three shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Lightning.

    Cizikas missed 10 games while dealing with a lower-body injury. He celebrated his return with a steal-and-score play for his first tally since Dec. 13. The fourth-line center is hardly a consistent scorer, but he's steady defensively as a fixture in the Islanders' lineup when healthy. For the season, he has 12 points, 45 shots on net, 70 hits, 45 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through 40 appearances.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Activated Thursday

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Shifts to LTIR

    Cizikas (lower body) was moved to long-term injured reserve Saturday, according to CapFriendly.

    In order to activate Ryan Pulock (lower body) from long-term injured reserve, the Islanders also moved Robert Bortuzzo (lower body) to LTIR on Saturday. It's unclear when Cizikas will be available to return to action, but he won't be in the lineup Monday versus the Maple Leafs. He has earned five goals, 11 points, 43 shots on net, 42 blocked shots and 69 hits across 39 appearances this season.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: On injured reserve

    Cizikas (lower body) was put on injured reserve Wednesday retroactive to Jan. 9, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The move being retroactive means Cizikas can be activated whenever he's healthy. However, he is listed as week-to-week, per Gross, so the 32-year-old forward probably won't return soon. Cizikas has five goals, 11 points, 69 hits and 42 blocks in 39 outings in 2023-24. Hudson Fasching has been playing regularly during Cizikas' absence.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Out week-to-week

    Cizikas will be out of action week-to-week after suffering a lower-body injury Tuesday against Vancouver, according to Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Cizikas has five goals and 11 points with 69 hits and 42 blocked shots in 39 games this season. With Cizikas on the shelf, Hudson Fasching will draw back into the lineup Thursday against Toronto after missing the last three games as a healthy scratch.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Dealing with lower-body injury

    Cizikas suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday's game versus the Canucks, Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News reports.

    Cizikas was hurt in the first period and tried but failed to play through it in the second. He will likely be considered day-to-day going into Thursday's game versus the Maple Leafs. If he can't play, Oliver Wahlstrom or Hudson Fasching could enter the lineup.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Adds helper in loss

    Cizikas logged an assist, two shots on goal, three hits and three blocked shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Cizikas snapped a nine-game point drought with the lone assist on Matt Martin's third-period marker. The 32-year-old Cizikas is a defensive stalwart for the Islanders, but he rarely plays above the fourth line. He's at 11 points, 43 shots on net, 69 hits, 41 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through 38 appearances, so his fantasy value is limited to deep formats.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Not playing Friday

    Cizikas was considered a game-time call against the Capitals but will ultimately miss his first game of the year. The 32-year-old has tallied five goals and 10 points through 34 games but has been held without a point over his last six appearances.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Under the weather

    Cizikas will be a game-time decision against Washington on Friday due to an illness, Ethan Sears of the New York Post reports.

    Cizikas is currently stuck in a six-game pointless streak during which he's managed just seven shots while averaging 14:21 of ice time. If the veteran center does miss out Friday, it will open up a spot in the lineup for either Julien Gauthier or Matt Martin.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Finds scoresheet in win

    Cizikas tallied a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over Anaheim.

    Cizikas extended the Islanders' lead to 2-0 in the second period, corralling a cross-ice feed from Cal Clutterbuck before burying a wrist shot. The 32-year-old Cizikas now has goals in back-to-back games and three points in his last four contests. While his recent scoring production has been a nice boost, the veteran center isn't expected to provide much offense on the fourth line. Cizikas is up to five goals and 10 points through 28 games this season. He's also added 44 hits and 29 blocked shots.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: On three-game point streak

    Cizikas supplied a goal in a 4-3 overtime loss to Detroit on Monday.

    With the Islanders shorthanded, Cizikas found the back of the net at 18:39 of the second period to put New York up 1-0. It was his second goal and fourth point in eight appearances this year. Cizikas is on a three-game scoring streak, but he's unlikely to have a great campaign offensively. The 32-year-old's serving in a bottom-six capacity and has never recorded more than 33 points in a single season.
