Romanov (upper body) didn't practice with the team Wednesday and is expected to miss Game 2 versus the Hurricanes, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Romanov has been sidelined since April versus the Lightning, a stretch of six games on the shelf due to his upper-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner was stuck in a 14-game goal drought during which he managed just 19 shots while recording four helpers. Even once cleared to play, Romanov is far from a lock to retake a spot in the lineup and may still have to keep watching from the press box.... See More ... See Less

Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Won't return Thursday
Romanov (upper body) isn't expected to play Thursday versus Tampa Bay, Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News reports.

Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Finding his game
Romanov has a rating of plus-7 over his last six games.
On the season, Romanov has two goals, 20 points and a rating of plus-8 in 67 games. It seems unlikely that he will ever be an offensive force, but the Isles knew that when they traded a first-round pick to the Canadiens for his services. Whether or not the 23-year-old will be worth that pick is up for debate, but the team will hope his defensive game keeps maturing, and that Romanov might improve offensively as he gains more experience....

Romanov's absence will open up a chance for Samuel Bolduc or Parker Wotherspoon to draw into the lineup. It's unclear if Romanov's absence will keep him out of the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Canucks.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Alexander Romanov: One goal in 52 games this season
Romanov has one goal, 14 assists and a plus-6 rating in 52 games this season.
General manager Lou Lamoriello giving up a first-round pick for those numbers is getting harder and harder to justify. Romanov may have a future as a top-three defender, but he certainly isn't there yet and offers little to no fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
