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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
