Today, Islanders center Casey Cizikas is celebrating his 23rd birthday.
Cizikas was a 4th round pick by the Islanders in the 2009 draft which is the same draft where the got the likes of John Tavares, Calvin de Haan and Anders Lee.
After playing a little over a season in Bridgeport, Cizikas was slotted in as the Islanders fourth line center and hasn't looked back. Over time, not only has Cizikas settled into that role effectively but he has also become a very good penalty killer as well.
We would like to wish Casey a very Happy Birthday and look forward to continuing to watch him evolve over the years as a member of this team.
