The Islanders announced today (1/19) that Kyle Okposo has completed the rehabilitation of his shoulder injury and will play tomorrow. The Islanders will host the Washington Capitals at Nassau Coliseum.
Okposo missed the first 44 games of the season when he injured his rotator cuff in a pre-season incident. Surgery was performed by doctors at the Cleveland Clinic.
I know that Islanders fans everywhere are elated at this development. The team finally welcomes back the man who contributed 52 points (19 goals, 33 assists) last season.
Here's a happy Kyle today letting a few media members know that he's ready to go. Let's hope his injury woes are over for good.
