Al Arbour Has Some Health Problems

from Mark Herrmann of Newsday,

Al Arbour, the coach of the Islanders during their Stanley Cup run in the early 1980s, is experiencing health problems, former general manager Bill Torrey told Newsday.

"Al has had some health problems of recent vintage, but the family hasn't released anything and I respect the family," Torrey said. "I've talked to some of the former players who have called him, and they say the conversation doesn't last very long."

Torrey did not expand on Arbour's condition or mention any symptoms.

Bryan Trottier, who won four Stanley Cups playing for Arbour, said Tuesday on a Buffalo radio station that Arbour is suffering from dementia.

I know this news hit the web a few days ago but I decided to wait until we at least heard something from the Arbour family.

When and if more information is released, I will post.
