CAPUANO NAMED ISLANDERS HEAD COACH
The New York Islanders announced today that they have removed the “interim” label from Head Coach Jack Capuano’s title.  As per club policy, the terms and conditions of Capuano’s contract are not disclosed.

“We have made tremendous strides as a team this season under Jack’s direction and I’m confident that he’s the right person to lead the Islanders into the playoffs,” said Islanders General Manager Garth Snow. “Jack’s work ethic and familiarity with the numerous players on our roster has eased his adjustment to the NHL and we look forward to him taking the Islanders to the next level.”

Capuano was named the Interim Head Coach of the Islanders on Nov. 15, 2010. The first-year coach led the Islanders to a 26-29-10 record this season, including a 25-21-8 mark in their final 54 games and a 15-12-6 record after the All-Star Break.

“I’m extremely excited to remain the Head Coach of the Islanders,” Capuano said.  “The organization has built a tremendous core of players here and I look forward to helping the Islanders become a consistent contender for years to come.” 

Prior to Capuano’s NHL head coaching debut on Nov. 17, he served as the Head Coach of the Islanders’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.  For the past four seasons, the Cranston, RI native, led the Sound Tigers to a 133-100-8-14 career mark.
 
Capuano joined the Islanders organization in the 2005-06 season as an assistant coach. From 1997-2005 he served as the General Manager of the Pee Dee Pride of the ECHL. As General Manager and while serving several stints as head coach, Capuano led the Pride to a record of 312-206-52. In 1998-99, Capuano coached Pee Dee to a regular season record of 51-14-4 and led them to the ECHL Final.
