UNIONDALE, NY - New York Islanders defenseman Mark Streit will be out indefinitely after suffering a freak shoulder injury during a scrimmage on Saturday.

The team revealed the news on Sunday, but New York Newsday is reporting that Streit will miss approximately six months with a torn rotator cuff and torn labrum after crashing into the boards.

The slick Swiss backliner posted 11 goals and 49 points in 82 games a season ago with the Isles.
