Word out of Islanders Country this morning officially puts to rest the rumors surrounding coach Jack Capuano – he has now been named Head Coach of the New York Islanders.

Terms and dollars, as per team policy were not announced.

I’ll have some more in a bit after the conference call!

Good for Jack on this, I’m very happy with this move and I’m anticipating some good stuff down the line!

It also appears that assistants Dean Chynoweth and Scott Allen will remain in their positions as well.
