Report: Islanders' Streit out six months
The New York Islanders' chances of returning to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2007 may have just suffered a huge blow.

Newsday is reporting that Mark Streit, the team's No. 1 defenseman, will miss six months after suffered a torn rotator cuff and labrum during a scrimmage at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Saturday morning.

Streit, 33, had 11 goals and 38 assists last season. He was primed to be paired with James Wisniewski, who was acquired from the Anaheim Ducks this summer.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
