Eberle (lower body) is getting closer to a return to the lineup, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Barry Trotz stated Monday that Eberle is considered to be day to day. Trotz was also playing it coy when he said he's just not sure which day he will return. Eberle is skating with the team. The Islanders don't play again until Friday and Saturday. Trotz may decide to play it safe with Eberle and only activate him for the second of those back to back games in Buffalo on Saturday.

Eberle (lower body) is back to skating, but doesn't have a return date set, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This news obviously rules Eberle out for Sunday's contest, but the fact that he's back to skating suggests a return could be close. The 29-year-old will now miss five consecutive games dealing with the nick, and the team just announced they will be without forwards Tom Kuhnhackl (lower body) and Matt Martin (undisclosed) for 4-to-six weeks. The great news for Eberle is that the team will be off until Friday when they take on the Lightning.

Eberle (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's game against the Coyotes, NHL.com's Brian Compton reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Barry Trotz labeled Eberle doubtful for Thursday's contest earlier this week, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. The 29-year-old winger has now missed four consecutive games, and at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to rejoin the lineup. He'll need to be activated off injured reserve before returning to game action, so he can be considered out indefinitely until that occurs.

Eberle (lower body) is considered doubtful for Thursday's home game against the Coyotes, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

If Eberle's indeed unable to play Thursday, he'll likely sit out Friday's game against the Senators as well. Eberle skated on his own Monday so he's on the right track. Oliver Wahlstrom figures to stay in the lineup while Tom Kuhnhackl mans the top line in Eberle's place.

Eberle (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Originally the Islanders thought that Eberle could possibly return to the lineup Saturday in Columbus but apparently he isn't healing as quickly as the team had hoped for. Eberle has three points, all assists, in five games this season. He signed a five-year $27.5 million contract this past June and is expected to be one of the top offensive players for the Islanders this season.

Per Andrew Gross of Newsday, Eberle (lower body) wasn't on the ice for morning skate, which suggests he likely won't play Saturday against Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

Eberle was considered doubtful for Saturday's contest due to his lower-body injury, so the fact that he won't be in the lineup against the Blue Jackets doesn't come as a surprise. The 29-year-old winger will hope to heal up in time for Thursday's game against Arizona.

Eberle (lower body) won't travel with the team for Thursday's road game against the Jets, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The report leaves open the chance that Eberle could join the team Saturday for a matchup against Columbus. For now, Tom Kuhnhackl appears to be taking Eberle's place on the top line with Mathew Barzal, and rookie Oliver Wahlstrom will stay in the lineup.

Eberle (lower body) is considered doubtful for Thursday's game against the Jets, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eberle is still technically considered day-to-day with his lower-body issue, but it sounds like he'll almost certainly miss at least one more contest. If that ends up being the case, the 29-year-old will set his sights on recovering in time for Saturday's matchup with Columbus. Either way, confirmation on Eberle's status against Winnipeg should surface prior to puck drop on Thursday night.

Eberle (leg) is day-to-day and won't play in Monday's game against the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Eberle was injured in Saturday's game against the Panthers. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, but he won't be ready in time for Monday's afternoon contest. In his place, the Islanders will plug rookie Oliver Wahlstrom into the top six.

Eberle suffered a leg injury late in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Eberle took a hard check along the board and limped to the bench. He didn't go to the locker room, but he also didn't take another shift in the game. Consider the forward day-to-day for now.
