It's going downhill quickly for the Islanders, who haven't even played a regular season game yet. Already losing Mark Streit for the next 6 months to shoulder surgery, the word is that they will be without Kyle Okposo for an indefinite amount of time after it was determined that he will also require shoulder surgery on Tuesday.
Okposo has missed the bulk of training camp and all of the preseason as he was getting his shoulder checked out and worked on, but obviously this has all gone for naught and surgery is their only option now. The extent of the rehab time likely won't be known until after the procedure has been done, so don't expect anything too concrete right away.
