Casey Cizikas will miss the next three to four weeks after suffering a laceration on his left leg, the Islanders announced Wednesday.
The veteran center sustained the injury in the first period of Tuesday’s 5-3 win over the Flyers at Barclays Center when he collided with Philadelphia defenseman Ivan Provarov and took a blade to the leg. The 28-year-old Cizikas couldn’t put any weight on his left leg. Islanders’ medical staff helped him off the ice and straight to the locker room and did not return.
The Islanders subsequently recalled Cole Bardreau from AHL Bridgeport. Bardreau, 26, made his NHL debut Oct. 10 and recorded his first NHL point Oct. 27 against the Flyers.
