Eberle scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old opened the scoring 18 seconds into the game after a Rangers turnover in front of Alexandar Georgiev, but the game belonged to the Blueshirts after that. Eberle had only one point, a goal, in his prior eight games, and on the year he's managed only five goals and 20 points through 34 contests.

Eberle scored his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

With the Isles on the forecheck midway through the first period, Eberle was the recipient of a bad giveaway as he skated through the slot and he wired the puck past MacKenzie Blackwood. It was Eberle's first goal in nearly a month, ending a 10-game drought, and on the season he has a disappointing 18 points through 32 contests.

Eberle collected two assists in a 3-2 loss to Columbus on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Eberle played a role in both his team's goals, drawing secondary assists in both cases. It's been a frustrating season for the 29-year-old, points-wise, but Eberle has authored back-to-back multi-point games, picking up five assists over his last three games. For the season, he's scored three goals and tallied a total of 17 points in 25 games.

Eberle notched two assists in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

He helped set up tallies by linemates Anders Lee and Mathew Barzal in each of the first two periods. December continues to be very good to Eberle, who has three goals and 10 points through 10 games on the month.

Eberle scored twice, with one coming on the power play, in Monday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

It took a couple of months, but Eberle finally cracked the goose egg in the goal column with a power-play tally in the second period. He doubled down by adding an insurance marker in the third. The 29-year-old still has just seven points in 15 appearances this season. A five-time 50-point earner, Eberle is due for some positive regression after a rough start to 2019-20.

Eberle was practicing on the third-line Tuesday with Leo Komarov and Michael Dal Colle, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Barry Trotz didn't mention any names but was obviously upset at several players after losing 3-0 to the Ducks on Monday. Trotz called these players "passengers" and stated he would meet with them before the Isles play again Wednesday versus the Kings. Eberle has had a multitude of scoring chances since returning from an ankle injury but has yet to light the lamp the season. His stay on the third-line should be short-lived as this is not what the Islanders are paying him for but he may need to produce first before being moved back to a scoring line.

Eberle does not have a goal in 11 games so far this season for the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Eberle re-signed with the Islanders with a five-year $27.5 million contract this past June. Right now he's returning little bang for that buck. Eberle did miss 10 games with a lower-body injury earlier this season and perhaps that is still affecting his play but it wasn't like he was lighting up the scoreboard before the injury. Eberle is obviously frustrated as he snapped the blade off of his stick after missing a scoring opportunity Saturday in San Jose. The numbers aren't pretty but coach Barry Trotz still has Eberle on the top line and on the first power-play unit. The next chance for Eberle to break his scoring slump will be Monday in Anaheim.

Eberle (lower body) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Panthers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Islanders don't appear to be planning on easing Eberle in following his 10-game absence, as he'll be skating on the first line and top power-play unit Saturday. The 29-year-old winger notched three helpers in five games before missing time due to a lower-body injury.

Eberle (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup with Florida, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eberle's status against the Panthers is still up in the air at this point, but he may join his teammates for pregame warmups, at which point a final decision on his availability will be made. If he's given the green light, the veteran forward will return to a top-six role and a spot on one of the Islanders' man-advantage units.

Eberle (lower body) practiced Monday with a non-contact jersey, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eberle has missed the last eight games due to the injury. It would seem that Eberle would be unlikely to play in a game until he can get through a full practice which would mean the earliest he would get back in the lineup is Thursday versus the Penguins. Eberle has only played five games this season and has three points, all assists, to go along with a minus-1 rating. Eberle is expected to return to the top line for the Islanders with Mathew Barzal and Anders Lee when healthy enough to play.
