  • Islanders' Scott Mayfield: Will miss at least two more games

    Mayfield (lower body) won't join the Islanders on their upcoming trip to Dallas and Detroit, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

The 31-year-old Mayfield has five assists, 106 blocked shots and 70 hits through 41 games this season. Sebastian Aho should round out the Isles' defensive corps while Mayfield is absent.

    Sorokin stopped 17 of 20 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Lightning. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

  • Islanders' Scott Mayfield: Not playing Saturday

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Warming up Saturday

    Cizikas (hand) is set to play Saturday versus Tampa Bay, per Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Cizikas was ruled a game-time decision after missing Thursday's contest with a hand injury, though it appears the veteran center will suit up in his regular fourth-line role. The 32-year-old Cizikas has six goals and 12 points in 44 games this season.

  • Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Game-time decision Saturday

    Cizikas (hand) will be a game-time decision Saturday versus Tampa Bay, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    Cizikas will partake in the pregame warmup, per coach Patrick Roy, before a decision is made on his status. Cizikas sat out Thursday's 4-0 loss to St. Louis after being injured Tuesday versus Pittsburgh. He has six goals, six assists and 97 hits in 44 games this season. Should Cizikas return to the lineup, Kyle MacLean could be a healthy scratch versus the Lightning.

  • Islanders' Hudson Fasching: Sent on conditioning assignment

    Fasching (illness) was assigned to AHL Bridgeport on a conditioning loan Friday.

    Fasching has been sidelined for over four weeks due to a lower-body injury and an illness, so he'll head to the minors to get back into game shape before presumably getting cleared to rejoin the Islanders' lineup. The 28-year-old winger has collected eight points through 35 contests in a bottom-six role with the Isles this season.

  • Islanders' Samuel Bolduc: On conditioning stint

    Bolduc was sent to AHL Bridgeport on a conditioning stint Friday.

    Bolduc has been a healthy scratch for seven straight games. He should get plenty of playing time with Bridgeport during his loan. Bolduc has a goal, two assists, 43 hits and 36 blocked shots in 33 NHL games this season.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Falls to St. Louis

The 35-year-old Varlamov has struggled since returning from a three-week stint on injured reserve, going 0-3-1 with an .881 save percentage. Overall, he's 6-7-3 with a .910 save percentage and 2.91 GAA while backing up Ilya Sorokin this season.
