UNIONDALE, N.Y. - The New York Islanders will be without centre Doug Weight for six weeks the result of a knee injury.

The Islanders placed Weight on the injured reserve list retroactive to Wednesday, when he suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament after colliding with New Jersey's Brian Gionta in the second period of the Devils' 4-2 win.

Weight, in his 17th NHL season, has nine goals and 26 assists in 44 games this season with New York and is the club's second-leading scorer.
