JACK CAPUANO NAMED INTERIM HEAD COACH OF NEW YORK ISLANDERS
The New York Islanders announced today that Jack Capuano has been named interim head coach, replacing Scott Gordon. Gordon will remain with the organization as an adviser to General Manager, Garth Snow.

Capuano has served as the head coach of the Islanders’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers the past four seasons. He will make his National Hockey League head coaching debut on Wednesday, Nov. 17 against the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum

“We believe we need a change in direction and, with the majority of the regular season still ahead of us, our goal remains to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs,” Snow said. “Scott has made tremendous strides with our team the past three seasons and I look forward to continuing our relationship in an advisory capacity.”
 
The native of Cranston, RI, had a 133-100-8-14 career mark as head coach of the Sound Tigers. Capuano joined the New York Islanders organization in the 2005-06 season as an assistant coach with the Islanders. From 1997-2005 he served as the General Manager of the Pee Dee Pride of the East Coast Hockey League.
