BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP)
Capuano traveled with the team to Buffalo following the Islanders' 6-0 home loss to Ottawa on Monday afternoon. He was too ill to attend the Islanders skate Tuesday morning, and remained at the team hotel for the game.
Weight is in his first year serving as Islanders' senior adviser to general manager Garth Snow and an assistant coach. A four-time NHL All-Star, Weight retired in May after playing three of his 19 NHL seasons with the Isles.
