The New York Islanders announced today that defenseman Devon Toews has completed successful shoulder surgery and is out for the remainder of the 2017-18 season. He is estimated to return in four to six months.

"It's an unfortunate situation, but I view it as another challenge to overcome and a chance to come back better, stronger and in a position to succeed," Toews said. "I look forward to contributing to the team next season and for many years to come."

Toews, 23, played 106 consecutive games with the Sound Tigers to begin his professional career until his injury kept him out of the Dec. 30 game against Binghamton. He has not played since.
