Casey Cizikas is on a three-game goal scoring streak.

That's quite a stretch for Cizikas, given that he had just six goals in 79 career NHL contests before this streak started. Despite his recent success, we don't expect him to have much fantasy value in standard leagues this season.

Casey Cizikas scored his second goal in as many games for the Islanders Saturday.

After picking up only one assist in his first 19 games of the season, Cizikas now has three points in 21 games. Cizikas had six goals and 15 points in 45 games during his rookie season in 2012-13 and then raised everyone's fantasy hopes with two goals and four points in six playoff games. But his poor start knocked him off everyone's fantasy radar until his effort the last two games. We would still pass on the bottom six forward but at least he is contributing of late.
