Casey Cizikas (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

The move is presumably retroactive to Jan. 13, so all this move really tells us is that Cizikas won't be returning on Saturday. Beyond that, he could still theoretically be returning at any time, but we don't have a timetable for that return. He has five goals and 11 points in 40 games this season.

There was no update Sunday on the status of the injured Casey Cizikas.

The center is out indefinitely after injuring his hand Saturday against the Rangers. He has 11 points in 39 games so the injury should not affect your fantasy team.

It appears the New York Islanders will be without the services of Casey Cizikas for at least a few games.

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.
Jan 13 - 4:16 PM

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.

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.

Casey Cizikas didn't take part in Monday's practice because of a lower-body injury.

"He's a little sore today so he took the day off, but I don't think it's going to be anything serious," coach Doug Weight said. "Could be 3 or 4 days, could be a week or he could be playing tomorrow." The Isles bench boss still needs to consult with the team doctors before a decision is made. Consider Cizikas day-to-day for now.
