Well, that didn't take long. Steve Tambellini has brought recently retired Islander Mike Sillinger on as Edmonton Oilers director of player development.
You knew Sillinger had the mind to continue his career in hockey. Best of luck to him with the Oil.
So he wasn't an Islander for long -- okay, less than a year -- and he was the least glorious Islander to wear POTVIN on his back, but his was an interesting career. ESPN's Pierre LeBrun updates.
The self-professed tattooed punk rocker, 37, is coaching AAA and enjoying parenting in Quebec.
He came for Berard in '99 and left for Weekes, Scatchard and Muckalt that same calendar year.
