Dang, this does not look good for his career... re-occuring injuries are bad news :thumbsdow

Zhitnik, who averages nearly 25 minutes per game, went down in the second period against the Devils and had to be helped off the ice. It was just his seventh game back from a right ankle injury that forced the 33-year-old Russian to miss five contests and the Turin Olympics.

He is in his first season with the Islanders, after leaving the Buffalo Sabres for a four-year, $14 million deal.

Zhitnik had five goals, 24 assists and a plus-4 rating in 59 games.
