Casey Cizikas (upper body) has been activated off of the injured reserve list.

We reported earlier that Cizikas would return to the Islanders' lineup on Monday, but here's some extra confirmation of that. Cizikas will take Michael Grabner's (lower body) spot in the lineup.

Casey Cizikas (upper body) is good to return on Monday.

Cizikas' return to the lineup will correspond with Michael Grabner's departure as the latter is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Cizikas has four goals and eight points in 26 contests in 2014-15.

Casey Cizikas (upper body) practiced on Friday.

Cizikas is eligible to return to action on Saturday as he was placed on injured reserve December 6. The Islanders put Cory Conacher on waivers Friday and if he passes through, or is claimed, a spot will open up on the 23 man roster. Cizikas has four goals and four assists in 26 games this season so his fantasy value is limited.

Casey Cizikas (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

The move is retroactive to Dec. 6. Cizikas didn't travel with the Islanders to Minnesota, so he obviously wasn't expected to play on Tuesday in the first place.

Casey Cizikas (upper body) didn't travel to Minnesota.

He stayed behind with fellow injured Islanders Travis Hamonic (upper body) and Johnny Boychuk (upper body). Cizikas shouldn't be expected to play on Tuesday as a result.

Casey Cizikas (back) was in the lineup on Friday.

Cizakas played a lot on Friday as he managed 18:36 minutes of ice time but was unable to hit the scoresheet. He led the Islanders in ice time while shorthanded as he played 6:35 as the Islanders gave up two power play goals in the third. Cizikas had only 16 points in 80 games last season so do not expect a lot of scoring from the bottom six forward.

Casey Cizikas was back at practice on Friday after injuring his back.

Cizilas had 16 points in 80 games last season and will likely start the season as the Islanders fourth line forward. He has no fantasy value.
Sat, Oct 4, 2014 08:47:00 AM

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.
Tue, Jul 15, 2014 04:29:00 PM

Casey Cizikas recorded two assists in the Islanders' 7-3 victory on Monday.

It was just the second multi-point game of Cizikas' career. The 22-year-old forward has five goals and 11 points in 42 games this season.
Tue, Jan 7, 2014 11:18:00 AM

Casey Cizikas will dress Saturday after missing Friday's practice due to a personal matter.

He's projected to center the team's fourth line. Cizikas has eight points and 70 hits in 36 games with the Islanders this season.
Sat, Dec 28, 2013 01:32:00 PM

Casey Cizikas didn't practice Friday because he was attending to a personal matter.

It's unclear if he will be available to play Saturday night against New Jersey, so we'll list him as day-to-day for the time being.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 03:55:00 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.
Sat, Dec 21, 2013 01:37:00 AM

Casey Cizikas (jaw) will not play on Tuesday.

There was a fair amount of optimism about Cizikas' chances of returning for Tuesday's contest after he participated in Monday's practice. He's still day-to-day.
Tue, Dec 17, 2013 10:51:00 AM

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

Cizikas should be considered probable for Tuesday's game after being unavailable on Saturday. He has three goals and seven points in 33 contests in 2013-14.
