COLLEY SAYS PLAYING DAYS ARE OVER
Islanders to discuss life after hockey with Kevin

Kevin Colley made a surprise visit to practice at Islanders Iceworks this afternoon. He was in good spirits, visiting with teammates and staff. Afterwards, he told reporters that his playing career is over.

The 26-year old Colley became an Islander fan favorite for his hard-hitting style. After several years in the minors, he scrapped his way into the NHL, appearing in 16 games this season with the Islanders.

Colley told reporters he feels "blessed that I am able to walk." He said it was difficult to be back at the rink knowing his playing days are over but that he was trying to stay positive and look towards the future.

Islanders general manager Mike Milbury released the following statement this afternoon:

"It's always difficult when the career of someone as special as Kevin Colley comes to a premature end. When you consider that Kevin gave everything he had every time he stepped on the ice, it's especially sad. There's no other word for it.

"The good news is that Kevin is going to lead a healthy and productive life. In the very near future we will have a thorough discussion with Kevin about his life after hockey."
