One month ago, Ladd returned after being out since November 13 with a lower-body injury. He missed training camp due to back issues. Ladd has four years left of his seven-year, $38.5 million contract. He is due to make $5.5 million in 2019-2020 season. His age and salary are areas of concern for the Islanders front office.
