Observations:

 

November 2013 - Cizikas has settled in as a mainstay at center in the Isles bottom six. He recently potted his third goal of the season and totals four points on the year. Brad Wilson

 

October 2013 – As expected, Cizikas was added to the Islanders 23-man roster to start the season. However, at this point, he should be considered for only the deepest of fantasy leagues. Brad Wilson

 

September 2013 – Cizikas played in 45-games for the Islanders last season, racking up 15-points while averaging 10-minutes a game. The 22-year-old gritty center managed four-points in the Isles’ surprising six game playoff series versus the Penguins and displays good two-way upside. He could reach the 30 or 40-point range for the constantly improving Islanders dependant on who he draws as line-mates, but excels more as a checker and penalty killer. Brad Wilson

 

May 2012 – Cizikas had a very successful debut to his professional career in Bridgeport of the AHL as he collected 45 points in 52 games, the second-highest point total on the team.  In addition, he saw some time in Long Island where he suited up for 15 games with the Islanders, where he posted four assists.  He may not have the highest offensive ceiling, but he brings a lot of intangibles that will see him on the ice in all game situations.  Unless the team adds some free agents over the summer, the road is clear for Cizikas to land a full-time NHL job next season. Eric Daoust

 

December 2011 – Initially thought to be a very promising potential third-line center and his rookie-pro debut has done nothing to dissuade the notion…Has already shown that he can be a 50-point player at the AHL level…His work ethic and timely production will see to it that he becomes an NHLer probably sooner rather than later…Thrives when the pressure is on. Eric Daoust

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

 

Cizikas is an Islander for good at this point, but his offensive ceiling is limited.
