Greiss saved 36 of 39 shots during Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss started three of the final four games for the Islanders, and he allowed 11 total goals with an .895 save percentage. He's under contract through the 2019-20 campaign at $3,333,333 per season, so barring a major shakeup, he should see plenty of action again next year. While the German has been a serviceable fantasy asset in the past, and even for stretches this season, a lot would probably need to go Greiss' way for him to be anything over than a matchup-based option in 2018-19.

Greiss will guard the goal in Saturday's season finale against the Red Wings in Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss will look to close out the season on a high note Saturday after allowing four goals in each of his last two starts. The veteran netminder remains under contract for two more seasons, so he should resume his role for the club next season after attempting to take down a Red Wings club that has averaged just 2.61 goals per game int he second half.

Greiss saved 27 of 34 shots during Tuesday's 5-4 win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

The German has now allowed four goals in consecutive games with an .879 save percentage. He's posted a respectable 12-8-2 record for the year, but his ratios are cripplers (.890 save percentage and 3.86 GAA). The Islanders host the Rangers on Thursday and visit the Red Wings on Saturday, and even with both teams also eliminated from the playoffs, Greiss should probably be viewed as a risky start against both.

Greiss will guard the home goal Tuesday against the Flyers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss showed some rust in his first game back from a long layoff, allowing four goals on 35 shots to take a loss against the Devils. The defeat dropped his record to just 11-8-2 on the season and his 3.85 GAA and .891 save percentage aren't exactly conducive to fantasy success either. Another rough night may await against a Flyers club scoring exactly three goals per game on the road this season.

Greiss will start in goal Saturday evening against host New Jersey.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a long time coming for Greiss, as a lower-body injury held him out the past 17 games. The German did dress for Friday's home contest against the Maple Leafs, though he wasn't needed as rookie Christopher Gibson went the distance despite allowing five goals on 32 shots. Greiss owns an 11-7-2 record, 3.84 GAA and .891 save percentage through 24 games this season.

Greiss (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Friday. According to Brian Compton of NHL.com, the German backstop is expected to serve as the backup to Christopher Gibson for the evening's home contest against the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss hasn't played since shutting out the Hurricanes on the road over a month ago. It's been a trying year for the German puck plugger, as he's been limited to 24 games with a 3.84 GAA and .891 save percentage counting as the worst ratios of his career -- not counting his early years when Greiss was merely a depth goalie.

Greiss (lower body) took to the ice for practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

We'd be interested to know just how active Greiss was in the latest session. After all, he hasn't played at all since shutting out the Hurricanes on Feb. 16 with a 45-save performance. Perhaps more information will be disclosed ahead of Thursday's home game against the Lightning, but it's worth noting that Finnish-born netminder Christopher Gibson has more than held his own for the Islanders with a 2-1-2 record and .936 save percentage through five games this month.

Greiss (lower body) is out for Tuesday's game versus the Penguins, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

That means Jaroslav Halak and Christopher Gibson will be the Islanders' two goalies Tuesday, though who will start is still up in the air. Not that fantasy owners have been clamoring for Greiss' return. He has a 3.84 GAA and an .891 save percentage this season.

Greiss (lower body) returned to practice with the Islanders on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss hasn't played since suffering the injury on Feb. 16. Unfortunately for him, the emergence of Christopher Gibson has likely taken away any chance for Greiss to start again anytime soon. There is even a chance that Greiss could be sent down to the AHL once he is activated off of IR if the Isles don't want to keep three goaltenders on their roster.
