De Haan inked a one-year, $3.3 million deal with the Islanders on Wednesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

It appears the two sides agreed to split the difference after having previously been separated by about $3 million -- de Haan was asking for $5 million, while the team was offering $2 million. The blueliner is coming off a 2016-17 season in which he registered career highs in goals (five), assists (20) and shots on goal (116). He's not likely to develop into a star on offense, but if he can increase his responsibilities -- specifically an expanded role on the power play -- he could approach the 30-point mark.
