After missing Tuesday’s game, Casey Cizikas still isn’t ready to go and will miss the New York Islanders next two games on Friday and Saturday.

Casey Cizikas has been a little banged up this year. He’s missed 12 games so far this year for the New York Islanders and it’s about to become 13 and 14 as he won’t be ready to go for either Friday’s or Saturday’s action.

Andrew Gross of Newsday gave us an update on all the Islanders and who will play and who won’t. Casey Cizikas on the list of those unable to go this weekend.

Through 64 games Cizikas has just 17 points (7 goals, 10 assists). The past two years have seen a decline in points and games played. Which isn’t ideal as the Islanders have him locked up for a few more years.

It doesn’t make sense to rush him back with the Islanders already eliminated from a playoff spot. For now, Chris Wagner can take Cizikas’ place on the fourth line.

Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy on the other hand are good to go. Alan Quine might be good to go for Saturday, and Scott Mayfield won’t be pushed to play both games. The Isles have a back-to-back against Toronto and New Jersey two teams who are very much in the playoff mix.
