According to Katie Strang’s Twitter feed, all-star defenseman Mark Streit will be out approximately six months with a torn rotator cuff and torn labrum suffered as a result of a hit during yesterdays intrasquad scrimmage at Nassau Coliseum.

This is a tough, tough loss for the Islanders – who were going to be riding a solid defensive pairing on the power play in Streit and newly acquired James Wisniewski.

According to Newsday’s Strang, the Islanders will be looking to bring in someone on a tryout basis the remainder of camp – but I wouldn’t be surprised to see some sort of roster move here to bring in extra help on the back end.
