Add yet another Islanders forward to the injury list. Rob Schremp is joining Mark Streit and Kyle Okposo on the Injury list.
Melville, NY (Sports Network) – New York Islanders forward Rob Schremp will be out 3-to-4 weeks with a lower back strain.
The 24-year-old suffered the injury during the Isles’ exhibition contest against the Devils on Friday when he was cross-checked by New Jersey forward Brian Rolston, according to Newsday.
This is bad news for the Islanders, who seem to be injuring themselves quite frequently in camp this season. Schremp—who is by no means a main force of offense, but was expected to take on a bigger role due to the other injuries—is yet another big loss for an Islanders team that really can’t afford it.
Schremp had 25 points (seven goals) in 44 games for the Islanders last season. Make sure to check out Lighthouse Hockey for more.
