Islanders D Alan Quine is out 4-6 weeks due to an upper body injury, the team announced Tuesday.
A sixth-round pick by the Isles back in 2013, Quine played his first full season in the NHL last year. He notched 18 points (five goals, 13 assists) in 61 games.
It's a tough blow for Quine, who really could have used the training camp to make an impression on Doug Weight. But for one of the younger players in camp (namely guys like Matt Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier), Quine's misfortune creates a huge opportunity.
