Report: Islanders re-sign Weight
According to a report from Newsday, the New York Islanders have signed veteran Doug Weight for another season.

Weight has agreed to a one-year deal according to Newsday. General Manager Garth Snow told Newsday that the deal was "in essence, done."

Weight suffered a torn labrum and rotator cuff injuries last season, and was limited to 36 games, scoring 1 goal and 16 assists. In 1,220 career regular-season games, Weight, 39, has scored 276 goals to go along with 748 assists.
Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
