Al Montoya Confirmed Surgery | May

There is clearly some sort of curse on New York Islanders goaltenders. The team confirmed today that Al Montoya had successful surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

The Islanders are insisting that he’ll be 100% by the time training camp rolls around in September, but as Katie Strang pointed out the Islanders top 3 goalies, Rick Dipietro, Kevin Poulin and now Al Montoya, will be returning from some variation of a knee injury.

In related news, Newsday confirmed Evegeni Nabokov will report to training camp in September. Last month Sovsports.ru ran an interview with the Russian net minder where he said he would report to training camp. Yesterday Nabokov’s agent, Don Meehan, reaffirmed those sentiments to Newsday.
