The news pipeline has been dead silent when it comes to the New York Islanders and Casey Cizikas, and that could be a good sign. A new report suggested that the centerman is aiming to stay on Long Island.
Cizikas is focused on remaining with the Islanders, according to Nick Alberga. This after the expansion Seattle Kraken took “a healthy run” at signing Cizikas, Alberga also reported.
That would match earlier reports from Arthur Staple of The Athletic, who indicated that Seattle had spoken with Cizikas’ camp during the exclusive free-agent window. The Islanders have expressed their desire to keep as much of their core intact, which would include Casey Cizikas.
“Right now we’re just trying to do everything we can to get our people back,” Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello said after the NHL Draft ended on Saturday.
Casey Cizikas reportedly was asking for somewhere in the $5 million range, according to Staple.
The fourth liner has been an unrestricted free agent since the market opened on Wednesday, but there has been very little chatter about him since then. Alberga’s report is the first sliver of information that has come out about one of the key members of the Islanders’ “identity line.”
