Islanders Agree to Terms with Cizikas
23-year-old center signs two-year contract

The New York Islanders announced today that Casey Cizikas has agreed to terms on a two-year National Hockey League contract.

Cizikas, 23, scored 16 points (six goals, 10 assists) in 80 games this past season with the Islanders. The Toronto, ON, native established career highs in assists, points and games played during his second full season with the club and third professional campaign.

In 140 career NHL games, the 5’11, 189-pound center has 35 points (12 goals, 13 assists). He appeared in six games with the Islanders during the first round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins, scoring four points (two goals, two assists), which included his game-clinching goal in Game 4.

In 83 American Hockey League games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Cizikas has 66 points (25 goals, 41 assists). He played in the 2012 AHL All-Star game as a rookie.

The Islanders selected Cizikas in the fourth round (92nd overall) of the 2009 NHL Draft. He played four seasons of junior hockey with the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors of the Ontario Hockey League, was named to the 2007-08 OHL All-Rookie Team and played in the 2010 OHL All-Star Game.

On the international stage, Cizikas represented Team Canada at the 2011 World Junior Championships, winning silver. He won gold with Team Canada-Ontario at the 2008 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
