Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Gets starting nod Tuesday
Sorokin will be between the home pipes versus Toronto on Tuesday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Sorokin has secured victories in five of his last six appearances while sporting a 2.35 GAA and a .919 save percentage. With 25 wins and five shutouts in 2022-23, the 27-year-old netminder could surpass personal bests in both categories if he continues to perform to this level over the final weeks of the regular season. The Islanders are set to play in back-to-back games against Columbus and Buffalo on Friday and Saturday, respectively, and Sorokin figures to split the pair of contests with Semyon Varlamov....

Koivula (lower body) was loaned to AHL Bridgeport on Monday.

Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Slides helper Saturday
Romanov notched an assist, four blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

Mayfield notched an assist, two shots on goal and three hits in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

Mayfield has added 99 shots on net, 144 blocked shots, 97 hits, 77 PIM and a plus-4 rating, providing an increase in physical play after trending down in those categories over recent years....

Cizikas set up Jean-Gabriel Pageau's shortie, which tied the game at 1-1 in the first period. With a goal and five helpers over his last nine contests, Cizikas has enjoyed a productive run. The 32-year-old center remains a fixture in the Islanders' bottom six, where he's picked up 19 points, 91 shots, 163 hits, 54 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 70 outings this season.... See More ...

Fasching logged an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.
Fasching has amassed three goals, three assists and a plus-7 rating over seven games in March. It has been a noticeable stretch of success for the 27-year-old, who continues to see middle-six minutes regularly for the first time in his career. He's up to 13 points, 50 shots, 38 hits and a plus-9 rating through 38 outings overall.... See More ... See Less

Islanders' Pierre Engvall: Success continues with helper
Engvall logged a power-play assist and two PIM in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.
Engvall helped out on Ryan Pulock's second-period tally. The assist gave Engvall a four-game point streak (three goals, two helpers). The 26-year-old winger has found a place on the second line alongside Brock Nelson and Kyle Palmieri. Engvall has 26 points, 111 shots, 41 hits and a plus-3 rating through 65 outings this season, but his recent play could make him a viable depth forward in fantasy.... See More ... See Less

Parise has three points over his last two games, finding success in a third-line role. The 38-year-old winger had the last goal in Saturday's game, giving him 18 tallies, 29 points, 160 shots, 82 hits, 78 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 71 contests overall.... See More ... See Less

The winger is up to 26 points, 93 shots, 65 hits and a plus-10 rating through 44 outings this season. He's looked comfortable on the second line with Pierre Engvall and Brock Nelson in recent contests.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Jean-Gabriel Pageau: Pair of points in win
Pageau scored a shorthanded goal on three shots, added an assist, logged three hits and blocked two shots in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.
Pageau's tally tied the game at 1-1 in the first period, and he also helped out on a Zach Parise goal in the third. Pageau has two goals and two assists over three games since he returned from an upper-body injury, as he's taken advantage of some favorable matchups during the Islanders' California trip. The 30-year-old center has 12 tallies (five on the power play, three shorthanded), 21 assists, 103 shots on net, 147 hits, 54 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating through 59 appearances....

Islanders' Otto Koivula: Still not playing
Koivula (lower body) won't play Saturday versus the Sharks, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Koivula can be considered out indefinitely until he returns to practice, as this is his fourth straight absence and the Islanders don't often provide injury updates. Casey Cizikas will continue to center the fourth line while Koivula is out.... See More ... See Less
