Okposo out with eye injury
By Katie Strang
Isles forward Kyle Okposo is not on the ice Wednesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
The team confirmed the 25-year-old winger is day-to-day with an eye injury suffered in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Devils at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
Okposo left the game after taking a stick to his left eye and was seen afterwards in the locker room with stitches.
Assuming there is no structural damage to his eye, Okposo is expected to be in the lineup Friday October 3 when the Isles square off in another tilt against the Devils in the team's 2013-14 season opener.
