Islanders Recall Cizikas
The New York Islanders announced today that forward Casey Cizikas has been recalled from loan from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League (AHL). The club also removed Travis Hamonic from injured reserve and returned goaltender Kevin Poulin on loan to the Sound Tigers. Earlier today, defenseman Aaron Ness was also returned on loan to the Islanders’ AHL affiliate.

Cizikas, 20, leads all Sound Tigers in scoring with 44 points, including a team-high 29 assists. The Toronto, ON, native also leads the team with a plus-25 plus-minus rating and ranks second on the Sound Tigers in goals with 15.

Since Jan. 1, Cizikas has posted 24 points (nine goals, 15 assists) and a plus-19 rating in 18-games to lead the Sound Tigers to a 16-1-0-1 record. He represented Bridgeport at the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic on Jan. 30 and was named the Reebok/AHL Player of the Month for January.

Selected by the Islanders in the fourth round, 92nd overall, of the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft, Cizikas established career highs in goals (29), points (64) and plus-minus rating (+43) last year with the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors during his fourth and final Ontario Hockey League season. He added a career-high 19 points (5g/14a) with a plus-11 rating in 16 OHL playoff games, as Mississauga fell in Game Seven of the OHL Finals to the Owen Sound Attack.
