Islanders Lose Two Major Players

May 5, 2004 - arenafootball2 (af2) - Hawaiian Islanders News Release

HONOLULU – The Hawaiian Islanders today announced they will not have the services of defensive specialist Eddie Klaneski and wide receiver/defensive back Anthony Arceneaux when Hawaii travels to California to face the San Diego Riptide on May 8.

Klaneski suffered a knee injury at Bossier-Shreveport last week. An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan, taken on his right knee Tuesday, indicated a slight tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Based on doctor’s recommendations, Klaneski will miss at least three weeks upon which he will be re-evaluated at that time.

Klaneski is Hawaii’s leading tackler with 18 solos and 12 assists. He ranks fourth in af2 in that category. He also has two interceptions.

Anthony Arceneaux injured his ribs against Bossier-Shreveport last week. X-rays taken this week were inconclusive but it is believed to be a deep bruise. Head coach Cal Lee indicated that Arceneaux will not play this week and will likely place him on the short term injured list. With Hawaii on a bye next week, Arceneaux will miss only one game.

Arceneaux ranks among the league leaders in scoring. He is seventh in af2 with 60 points. He is also first on the team in touchdown catches (9), second in receiving yards (272) and third in receptions (17). He also ranks first in interceptions (2) and second in kick returns (5 returns for 102 yards).
