YASHIN OUT 2-4 WEEKS
Islanders' Leading Scorer Sidelined with Sprained Knee

New York Islanders captain and leading scorer Alexei Yashin will be out of the lineup for 2-4 weeks with a sprained knee. Yashin, who has 10 goals and 18 assists for 28 points in 22 games, was injured in the third period of the Islanders' 4-1 win over Washington on Saturday night at Nassau Coliseum.

"It's a big loss, no doubt, especially with Yash playing so well, but every team has to deal with injuries," said Islanders head coach Ted Nolan. "It's up to everyone else to step up their games and take advantage of the opportunities they're provided."

The Islanders recalled veteran forward Eric Boguniecki from Bridgeport of the American Hockey League today. The 31-year old Boguniecki is 3-5-8 in 12 games with the Sound Tigers after his acquisition last month from Columbus for defenseman Ryan Caldwell. The 5-8, 195-pound forward has played 167 games over an NHL career with Florida, St. Louis and Pittsburgh. He has 32 goals and 44 assists for 76 points in 167 games. His best season was in 2002-03, when the center was 22-27-49 in 80 games with the Blues. Last season the New Haven, CT. native had five goals and six assists in 36 games with the Penguins.
