Nick Leddy recorded two assists in the Islanders' 5-4 win over Detroit on Sunday.

Leddy now has 10 goals and 31 points in 73 games in 2014-15. He's reached the 30-point mark in each of his last three campaigns (not including the lockout shortened 2013 season), and at the age of 24, he should have many more campaigns like that ahead of him.

As speculated, defenseman Nick Leddy will indeed return to the New York Islanders' lineup Saturday night.

Leddy missed the past four games with an upper-body injury. He will resume his usual role alongside Johnny Boychuk. Leddy leads all Islanders defensemen with 10 goals and a plus-17 rating.

Nick Leddy (upper body) could be back in the lineup on Saturday.

He skated again in the morning and will be evaluated by team doctors in the afternoon. "I feel pretty good," Leddy said. "We have another day before the game, so we'll keep working and keep getting better. It was just a freak thing like I said. It happened. I just want to work through it and hopefully be back Saturday."
Mar 19 - 1:48 PM

Nick Leddy (upper body) skated by himself before practice Saturday.

Leddy was hurt on Monday against Toronto and is expected to miss two weeks. He had a 320 consecutive streak of games played broken this week. He has 10 goals and 29 points this season.
Mar 14 - 11:07 AM

Nick Leddy may be out for two weeks with an upper-body injury, according to a source.

He was injured in Monday's game against Toronto and sat out Tuesday's match versus the Rangers as a result. Leddy has 10 goals and 29 points in 68 games this season.
Mar 11 - 11:13 AM

Nick Leddy (undisclosed) isn't on the ice for the pre-game warmup on Tuesday.

The Islanders are taking on the Rangers and it doesn't look like Leddy will suit up for the tilt. Leddy was injured in Monday's game against Toronto after he collided with Morgan Rielly. He is considered day-to-day right now. Leddy had played in 320 consecutive games before tonight.
Mar 10 - 6:34 PM

Nick Leddy is being regarded as a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Leddy left Monday's contest in the second period after colliding with Toronto's Morgan Rielly. It's worth noting that he's played in 320 straight contests, so we like his chances of remaining in the lineup.
Mar 10 - 4:43 PM

Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy was injured during New York's 4-3 overtime win against the Maple Leafs in Toronto Monday night.

Leddy left the game in the second period after colliding with Toronto's Morgan Rielly. Leddy has 10 goals and 19 assists in 68 games this season. Recently, the Isles signed the d-man to a seven-year, $38.5-million contract extension.
Mar 9 - 11:14 PM

The New York Islanders have signed Nick Leddy to a seven-year, $38.5 million contract extension.

In other words, Leddy will come with a $5.5 million annual cap hit, which is a big raise over his 2014-15 salary of $3.4 million. That's not a surprising increase though, given that Leddy has proven to be a very effective top-four defenseman with the Islanders and has been a big part of the team's breakout campaign. He has eight goals, 25 points, and a plus-12 rating in 61 contests. The Islanders acquired Leddy and Kent Simpson from the Chicago Blackhawks in October in exchange for T.J. Brennan, Ville Pokka, Anders Nilsson.

Nick Leddy led the way for the Isles in their convincing 5-2 win over the league-leading Predators on Thursday night with a goal and two assists.

The young blueliner was due for a haul with just one point in his past 12 games. Leddy assisted on the second and third goals of the night to give New York a 3-0 lead in the first period, then helped put the Preds' comeback to bed with an insurance goal in the third to make it 4-2. Leddy has 25 points in 59 games for the Isles.
Feb 19 - 9:44 PM

Nick Leddy had a goal and an assist in a 7-4 victory over Philadelphia on Monday.

Leddy has seven goals and 21 points in 46 contests. His transition from the Blackhawks to Islanders has been seamless. It has certainly helped that both teams have excelled offensively during his time with them. Look for him to roughly maintain his point-per-game pace after the All-Star break.
Jan 20 - 9:31 AM

Nick Leddy had an assist in the Islanders' 2-1 victory Thursday night.

Leddy has five goals and 11 points in 26 contests in 2014-15. He's capable of maintaining his current point-per-game pace, but we don't expect him to significantly improve on it.

Nick Leddy is thriving with the Islanders as he has five goals and nine points in 20 games.

Leddy was dealt from the Blackhawks just before the start of the season and has been a force offensively for the suddenly respectable Islanders who are second in the Metropolitan Division with 28 points in 20 games. Leddy had 31 points last season for Chicago but is getting a much better chance to showcase his talents on Long Island than he would with the Blackhawks as he always had Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook in front of him on the depth charts. If available in deeper leagues, grab Leddy.

The New York Islanders added to their Saturday bounty by acquiring Nick Leddy and goalie Kent Simpson for Kent Nilsson, T.J. Brennan and Ville Pokka.

Leddy, 23, managed 31 points in 82 games with the Blackhawks last season. One might think he's in for a dip, but with the Islanders' attacking system and at least the potential for a more robust role (especially as a PP quarterback), he might meet or even exceed those totals. His career-high was 37 points in 2011-12. Leddy's in a contract year so he shouldn't lack motivation, either.
