The Islanders and Greene have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Greene's role with the team last season was as a seventh defenseman but this year the Isles will expect him to not only be a regular but also to mentor Noah Dobson on the third pairing. That may be a lot to ask of a 38-year old defender in a condensed season loaded with back-to-back games. Look for the Islanders to rest Greene with some regularity this campaign.
