Islanders’ Scott Mayfield has surgery to end injury-plagued season

Scott Mayfield’s season is over.

The defenseman underwent season-ending surgery to address a lower-body injury and has been placed on long-term injured reserve since the end of February, the Islanders announced Tuesday.

The Islanders said in a statement that Mayfield “is expected to make a full recovery and is expected to have no issues or delays in his summer training regiment.”

The first season of Mayfield’s seven-year contract, signed last summer, was marred by injuries from the first game, with Mayfield having a blocked ankle shot in the opening game and missing two weeks.

That ankle injury never fully healed, although Mayfield suffered another upper-body injury in mid-December.

A few days before going on LTIR, Mayfield told the Post that his ankle didn’t feel better until the All-Star break.

Mayfield struggled accordingly over 41 games, as he was off pace for much of the season and received 15 minor penalties, currently tied for the most on the team.
