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?

Seidenberg has only played one game for the Islanders in the early part of the season.

EDGE Analysis

It came as a surprise to some that the Islanders re-signed the veteran defenseman as the team has plenty of depth at the position. In the one game that Seidenberg did play this season he was a minus three which won't help his case for more ice time. Seidenberg may very well have to get used to the view from the press box on game nights.

Seidenberg signed a one-year contract with the Islanders on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

For the second-straight season, Seidenberg was signed to a single year deal, next season, he'll get a slight raise to $1.25 million compared to this year's $1 million. The blueliner had 22 points in 73 games, his highest total since notching 23 back in 2011-12.

Seidenberg registered an assist and four shots on net during Tuesday's overtime win against Nashville.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a bounce-back campaign for the veteran, as Seidenberg has posted five goals, 22 points and a plus-24 rating. Those numbers are serviceable in deep seasonal leagues, but with just 86 shots, 32 PIM and no power-play points, Seidenberg is far from a well-rounded asset. In most settings, you'll likely want to aim higher.

Seidenberg scored a goal in a 5-4 win over the Stars on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old also skated to a plus-3 in the contest, bringing him up to an eye-popping plus-23 on the campaign. Also, while Seidenberg's 19 points aren't earth-shattering, it's his most since 2011-12 with the Bruins, so he seems to be having something of a renaissance in his first season in Brooklyn.

Seidenberg hasn't tallied any points in his last seven games.

EDGE Analysis

Seidenberg has been a better player than expected since signing with the Islanders during training camp. He only has one goal this season but does have 11 helpers. His value to the team has been as a stable veteran defender who for the most part won't make mistakes and will also allow several of their younger blue liners to get further seasoning in the AHL.
