Casey Cizikas has agreed to a two-year, $2 million contract with the New York Islanders.
Cizikas had 16 points and 30 penalty minutes in 80 games with the Islanders last season. He was rather productive offensively in the minors before he established himself in the NHL, but he's not likely to spend much time on a scoring line with the Islanders. Jul 15 - 4:29 PM

Casey Cizikas returned to action on Friday.

Cizikas was plus-one in 12:26 minutes which included 4:30 of killing penalties. He has three goals and seven points in 34 games so his fantasy value is negligible.

Casey Cizikas (jaw) took part in Monday's practice.

Casey Cizikas missed Saturday's game after injuring his jaw on Thursday.

The Islanders are unsure of the severity of the injury as there is still too much swelling to determine if there is a break. Cizikas is in pain so it does not look good in regards to a quick return. Cizikas has three goals and seven points in 33 games and like most Islanders has been slumping of late with only one assist in his last nine games.

Casey Cizikas injured his jaw during Thursday's game.

There hasn't been a report yet on if Cizikas' injury is significant. He has three goals and seven points in 33 games this season.

Casey Cizikas is on a three-game goal scoring streak.

That's quite a stretch for Cizikas, given that he had just six goals in 79 career NHL contests before this streak started. Despite his recent success, we don't expect him to have much fantasy value in standard leagues this season.

Casey Cizikas scored his second goal in as many games for the Islanders Saturday.

After picking up only one assist in his first 19 games of the season, Cizikas now has three points in 21 games. Cizikas had six goals and 15 points in 45 games during his rookie season in 2012-13 and then raised everyone's fantasy hopes with two goals and four points in six playoff games. But his poor start knocked him off everyone's fantasy radar until his effort the last two games. We would still pass on the bottom six forward but at least he is contributing of late.

Casey Cizikas scored his first goal of the season for the Islanders in their 3-2 loss to the Kings Thursday.

The tally was the first of the campaign for Cizikas in his 20th appearance so he shouldn't be on anybody's fantasy radar. Defenseman Aaron Ness also chipped in by registering his first career NHL goal in the losing effort.

Updating a previous note, Casey Cizikas (mouth) has returned to the game.

Great news. Cizikas was caught by a Simon Despres skate in the chin/mouth area and presumably went to the locker room to get stitched up. He has two goals and a helper in the series.

Casey Cizikas has headed to the Islanders' dressing room after Simon Despres' skate contacted him around the mouth area.

This could've been much worse. Despres' skate came up high on a hit from Cizikas. The forward went to the locker room immediately but it didn't seem as bad as other skate incidents we've seen over the years.

Casey Cizikas generated a goal and two assists in Game 4 Tuesday night.

He scored his first career playoff goal in Sunday's overtime loss and he followed that up with a superb three-point performance. Cizikas logged a postseason high 12 minutes of ice time and he finished with a plus-4 rating. His second marker of the playoffs came late in the contest and it provided the Islanders with a 6-4 lead.
