Seidenberg will suit up for Team Germany in the World Championships next month, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 36-year-old played in 28 games for the Islanders this year, bouncing in-an-out of the lineup for most of the season. He registered just five assists and a minus-9 rating. The World Championships will start up in May and Seidenberg should play an important role on the team's blue line.

Seidenberg will be a healthy scratch Saturday evening when the Islanders play host to the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

The blueliner from West Germany reportedly will be replaced by Brandon Davidson, who has put an undisclosed issue behind him after a three-game layoff. Seidenberg, who qualifies as a journeyman, had no trouble posting 20-plus points in his prime, but now he's 36 years old and it seems his sights are solely set on delivering hits and blocked shots -- he's up to 55 and 39 of those, respectively, in 24 games this season.

Seidenberg hasn't played during the Islanders last 10 games.

EDGE Analysis

He has only played in 22 games for the Islanders this season and has only accumulated five assists during those contests. He was brought in as veteran insurance but coach Doug Weight has opted more often than not to go with his young defenders over Seidenberg. He will probably be looking for a new home next season.

Seidenberg was a healthy scratch for the fifth time in the last seven games Monday versus Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Seidenberg has only played 22 games this season and has only five assists and no goals. He is an emergency defenseman for the Isles who only plays when there is a late injury or if coach Doug Weight believes one of his younger defenders needs a game off.

Seidenberg has only played three games this calendar year and has been a healthy scratch in seven of the past eight Islander games.

EDGE Analysis

One might have thought that with injuries to Johnny Boychuk (lower body) and Calvin de Haan (shoulder) that Seidenberg would've have seen increase in playing time. That has not been the case however as coach Doug Weight has preferred to use younger defenders like Ryan Pulock and Sebastian Aho. It looks like Seidenberg will only be used when a starting defender needs a day off or when a late injury occurs before the team can call up another defender from the AHL.

Seidenberg collected two assists, four hits and a blocked shot Thursday in a 6-4 road loss to the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

This was the second multi-assist performance for Seidenberg this season, but he's having a tough time drawing into the lineup these days let alone impressing fantasy owners with his offensive binges. Generally, a good starting point in searching for a fantasy defender is making sure he skates at least 20 minutes per game; the German doesn't check that box.

Seidenberg will be a spectator in Thursday night's home game against the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

Islanders coach Doug Weight wants to plug Thomas Hickey into the lineup, so Seidenberg draws the short straw here. He's accustomed to the part-time role, which is detrimental to his fantasy prospects. Indeed, with only three assists through 13 games, Seidenberg can be safely passed over in virtually any fantasy format.

Seidenberg, who's been a frequent spectator this season, will play in Saturday's game against the Bruins, his former team, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Seidenberg reportedly will replace Scott Mayfield, but don't expect heavy playing time for the former. In fact, he's only drawn into 10 games this season with 17:47 of average ice time.

Seidenberg has only drawn into the lineup in seven of the Islanders first 17 games this season.

EDGE Analysis

This should not come as a surprise to anyone as Seidenberg was re-signed during the summer as veteran insurance for the Islanders defense. He has two assists, is a minus-3, and averages just under 18 minutes of ice time when he does play but will continue to be a healthy scratch more often than not unless the Isles were to suffer a rash on injuries on their blue line.

Seidenberg will sub in for Scott Mayfield (undisclosed) against the Sharks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The German defenseman posted two hits and three blocked shots in the season opener, but he kept hearing the Blue Jackets' goal siren blaring while he was on the ice, as deduced from his putrid minus-3 rating. Depending on Seidenberg in fantasy is like trying to catch lightning in a bottle -- why even try?
