Isles Day to Day: Leddy Practices in Florida

Nick Leddy joined the Islanders practice after missing Monday's game with a lower-body injury

Nick Leddy practiced with the New York Islanders on Wednesday afternoon in Sunrise, FL, a positive development after the defenseman missed Monday's game with a lower-body injury. 

Leddy is considered day to day with a lower-body injury that he suffered in the waning minutes of Saturday's 3-1 loss to Dallas. The defenseman got tangled up with Dallas' Esa Lindell in the neutral zone and left the game. 

"It's hard to miss practice or a game, I think I've been pretty lucky throughout my career that I haven't missed too many," Leddy said. "It's definitely a new experience, but feeling good. Feeling better."

Head Coach Barry Trotz did not say whether Leddy would play on Thursday night against the Florida Panthers, as the Isles wrap up a three-game road trip. Leddy has 11 points (2G, 9A) in 23 games this season. 

"We'll see, it's just too early right now," Trotz said. "It's his first day back skating for a little bit. He's felt good today, I kept him out of one drill at the end to be safe."
