Kukla's Korner Hockey

New York Islanders captain Doug Weight, who has been dealing with chronic back spasms since November, informed the local media on Tuesday that he will sit out the remainder of the season.
The 40-year-old center remains uncertain if he’ll retire, however.
Weight, a 19-season veteran and the fifth-oldest player in the League, has struggled to remain in the lineup in recent seasons due to nagging injuries. Back spasms have kept him out of the lineup for all but 18 games in 2010-11—he hasn’t played since Nov. 17 against Tampa Bay and was placed on injured reserve.
He previously underwent season-ending shoulder surgery on March 18, 2010.
