Al Arbour, who coached the New York Islanders to four consecutive Stanley Cup championships in the early 1980s, died Friday at the age of 82.

Arbour was being treated for Parkinson's disease and dementia near his home in Sarasota, Fla. His death was confirmed by the Islanders.

"Al will always be remembered as one of, if not, the greatest coaches ever to stand behind a bench in the history of the National Hockey League," Islanders president and general manager Garth Snow said in a statement. "The New York Islanders franchise has four Stanley Cups to its name thanks in large part to Al's incredible efforts. From his innovative coaching methods to his humble way of life away from the game, Al is one of the reasons the New York Islanders are a historic franchise. On behalf of the entire organization we send our deepest condolences to the entire Arbour family."

Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1996, Arbour also won the Stanley Cup four times as a player, with the Detroit Red Wings in 1954, with the Chicago Blackhawks in 1961 and with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1962 and 1964.

Blues forward Berglund to have shoulder surgery

Thursday, 08.27.2015 / 3:23 PM / News

Louie Korac - Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues forward Patrik Berglund will have surgery on his right shoulder Friday and will be re-evaluated in four months.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong confirmed Thursday that Berglund, who initially dislocated the shoulder at the end of the 2013-14 regular season, re-aggravated the injury while training during the summer. He also said veteran center Scott Gomez has accepted an invitation to attend training camp on a professional tryout contract.

Berglund, 27, had 12 goals and 27 points in 77 games with the Blues last season and two goals and two assists in six games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Berglund has 118 goals and 247 points in 513 regular-season games and six goals and 13 points in 29 playoff games.

"It's an injury we hoped we were past," Armstrong told "It happened a couple years ago entering the playoffs and he did a great job of rehabbing and getting the strength back. We were hoping it was behind us, but he was training this summer [and] he aggravated the shoulder again. He came right to St. Louis when that happened and our trainers and [Berglund] worked on it and it certainly wasn't going to get any better. So the surgery was necessary."
