Lubomir Visnovsky is entertaining the possibility of signing with a European club.

Visnovsky is intent on extending his playing career, but he's unlikely to re-sign with the New York Islanders. The 38-year-old had five goals and 20 points in 53 games last season. If he does land an NHL contract, we would be very hesitant to recommend drafting him in standard leagues at this stage of his career.
Jul 28 - 10:04 PM

Louis Leblanc has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the New York Islanders.

Leblanc was taken by Montreal with the 18th overall pick back in 2009, but he has fallen well short of expectations. The Canadiens traded him cheaply to Anaheim last summer and the Ducks didn't even bother to present him with a qualifying offer this year. He had 14 goals and 29 points in 71 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Jul 17 - 2:01 PM

The New York Islanders have inked Kevin Czuczman to a one-year extension.

Czuczman had seven points and 56 penalty minutes in 50 AHL contests last season. The 24-year-old blueliner participated in 12 games at the NHL level back in 2013-14.
Jul 15 - 12:13 AM

Mike Halmo has agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Islanders.

Halmo had a goal and 32 penalty minutes in 20 games with the Islanders in 2014-15. He might be able to play more regularly with New York next season, but it we don't think it will be as more than a bottom-six forward.
Jul 15 - 12:11 AM

The New York Islanders have yet to re-sign restricted free agent Brock Nelson.

Nelson earned $1.925 million last season and had 20 goals and 42 points in 82 contests. Nelson got off to a hot start with 19 points in his first 20 games but then regressed to normal numbers as he had nine, eight and six points respectively in his final three quarters of the season. Look for a 30-35 point season in 2015-16 for the winger.
Jul 4 - 6:59 AM

The New York Islanders have signed Joe Whitney to a one-year, two-way contract.

Whitney had 23 goals, 60 points, and 64 penalty minutes in 66 AHL contests in 2014-15. He might play for the Islanders at some point during the 2015-16 campaign as an injury replacement.
Jul 3 - 10:29 AM

The New York Islanders have inked Bracken Kearns to a one-year, two-way deal.

Kearns had 10 goals and 20 points in 45 games in the Finnish Elite League last season. The 34-year-old forward has played in 31 career NHL contests.
Jul 3 - 10:27 AM

Ben Holmstrom has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the New York Islanders.

Holmstrom had 20 points and 92 penalty minutes in 62 AHL contests in 2014-15. The 28-year-old is an organizational depth forward.
Jul 3 - 10:25 AM

The New York Islanders have inked Justin Florek to a one-year, two-way deal.

Florek had 11 goals and 35 points in 73 AHL games in 2014-15. The 25-year-old forward has participated in four career NHL contests.
Jul 2 - 6:38 PM

The New York Islanders have signed center James Wright to a one-year/two-way contract.

The deal is worth $800,000 when Wright is in the NHL. He played last season with Zagreb of the KHL after playing 59 games for the Jets in the 2013-14 season in which he garnered a couple of assists. He has no fantasy value.
Jul 2 - 9:07 AM

Thomas Hickey's three-year deal with the Islanders is official.

He will earn $2.2 million per season. In 81 games last season, Hickey had 22 points and a minus-12 rating.
Jul 1 - 12:31 PM

Kirill Petrov has signed an entry-level deal with the New York Islanders.

He produced five goals and 15 points in 47 games last year with Ak Bars Kazan of the KHL Petrov was a third-round pick of the Islanders back in 2008.
Jul 1 - 12:19 PM

Thomas Greiss has inked a two-year, $3 million deal with the New York Islanders.

He will serve as Jaroslav Halak's backup after playing behind Marc-Andre Fleury last season. Greiss had a 9-6-3 record with a .908 save percentage and a 2.59 GAA with the Penguins.
Jul 1 - 12:15 PM

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the two sides are nearing the completion of a three-year contract with an annual average value of about $2.2 million.
Jun 30 - 4:36 PM

The New York Islanders have signed Anders Lee to a four-year deal.

He will make $3.75 million per year. Lee broke out in 2014-15 with 25 goals and 41 points in 76 games.
