New York Islanders center Casey Cizikas left the game against the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night with an injured jaw and the team said he will not return.

Cizikas was injured in a collision with Phoenix defenseman Connor Murphy while he was forechecking on his fourth shift of the night. He saw 2:31 of ice time before leaving.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
