MORE HIP SURGERY FOR SILLINGERVeteran center out for the season

6:15 pm – The Islanders have just announced that Mike Sillinger is out for the season after undergoing hip resurfacing surgery in New York yesterday, his second hip surgery in the last year.


On January 2, knowing his season – and quite possibly his NHL career – was done, we wrote this ode to the man they call Silli. He could be in Saskatoon for Islanders training camp in September, but whether it’s as a 38-year old member of the roster would seem to be very much in question.
