Calvin de Haan was hoping to sign a long-term contract with the New York Islanders over the summer, but ultimately ended up with a one-year, $3.3 million deal.

"I got a one-year deal that wasn’t really up to me," de Haan said. "I love being here, it’s a great organization, we get treated well. We’ll see what happens throughout the season. It’s too early to tell about the future, but I’m here for another year and I’m happy about that." Islanders GM Garth Snow noted cap considerations when explaining why the team ultimately just renewed de Haan for another season rather than locking him up. de Haan, who had five goals and 25 points in 82 games last season, can become an unrestricted free agent this summer unless the Islanders re-sign him.

Calvin de Haan was not protected on Sunday but he is likely to remain a New York Islander.

Calvin de Haan is a restricted free agent and is coming into his own after being the 12th overall pick in the 2009 Entry Draft.

We’re in a good position right now and they want me to be healthy for the playoffs." De Haan has two goals and 10 points in 58 contests in 2015-16.
