Islanders get another shot at Staios
Steve Staios has accepted a training camp invite from the Isles.
Staios, who turned 38 in late July could have been an Islander 20 years ago. He was drafted by St. Louis in the 2nd round of the 1991 Entry Draft -- one pick after the Islanders selected Zigmund Palffy.
Staios has appeared in 936 NHL games, primarily with Edmonton. He was a teammate of Islander General Manager Garth Snow with the Canucks in the late 1990s.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
