Islanders Coach Named

UNIONDALE, New York-- Lorne Henning got back to where he started as an original New York Islander -- only the job is much bigger, and so is the shadow. Henning was named Monday as the team's new coach, succeeding his longtime boss, Al Arbour. The announcement was typical of the organization Henning has served for 18 of its 22 years. Henning, 42, has been quietly involved in virtually everything noteworthy that has ever happened to the Islanders, from being their second pick in their inaugural draft to making the first pass toward the overtime goal that won their first Stanley Cup.
