The New York Islanders have announced that center Casey Cizikas has suffered an upper-body injury and he will not return to this afternoon's contest against the New York Rangers.
Advice: It's unclear what caused his injury but he left to the dressing room favoring his hand. The 26-year-old has totalled 11 points in 39 games so far this season and is one of the better checking centers in the league. We'll likely have an update after the game.
It appears the New York Islanders will be without the services of Casey Cizikas for at least a few games.
Advice: Speaking after the game, head coach Doug Weight said it "doesn't look good" in regards to Cizikas' injury. Based on Weight's words and Cizikas leaving favoring his hand, we'd suspect Cizikas is dealing with a broken bone in his hand but this has not been confirmed. He has already been ruled out of Monday's contest against the Montreal Canadiens.
