|(5/31/19) Fritz (hand) signed a two-year contract extension with the Islanders on Friday.|
Fritz played in just eight NHL games this year, in which he tallied one helper, six shots and 18 hits while averaging 10:49 of ice time. The center spent most of the year in the minors with AHL Bridgeport. In 57 minor-league contests, he garnered 12 goals and 25 helpers before a hand injury ended his season prematurely. If Fritz can put together a strong showing in camp, he could earn himself a bottom-six role for Opening Night in October.
