Top Islanders News

  • Islanders' Calle Odelius: Inks entry-level contract

    Odelius signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the Islanders on Friday, per PuckPedia.

    Odelius was a second round pick in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. The 18-year-old blueliner scored 30 points through 43 appearances in the Swedish junior league and was held without a point across seven games in the top league. He'll likely stay in Sweden to continue his development for the time being.

  • Islanders' Andy Andreoff: Pens new contract

    Andreoff signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    Andreoff had 42 points in 60 games with AHL Bridgeport last season, but he only appeared in six NHL contests. His new contract is a two-way deal in both seasons, so Andreoff will likely remain on the fringe between the AHL and NHL as a depth forward for the Islanders.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Avoids free agency

    Aho signed a two-year, $1.65 million contract with the Islanders on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    Aho posted 12 points in 36 games with the Islanders this year, getting his first taste of action as a regular presence in the lineup. He added 34 shots on net, 42 blocked shots and 32 hits. The 26-year-old will likely be in the mix for a bottom-four spot heading into 2022-23, and his new deal is one-way in both seasons, which bodes well for his chances of making the Opening Night roster.

  • Islanders' Robin Salo: Staying on Long Island

    Salo signed a two-year, $1.6 million contract with the Islanders on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    Salo's new contract is one-way for both seasons, so it appears the 23-year-old is on track to be an NHL regular. He put up five points in 21 contests in his first taste of NHL playing time last year, and Salo could be a factor on the second power-play unit in 2022-23.

  • Islanders' Jeff Kubiak: Links up with Islanders

    Kubiak signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    Kubiak has spent the last five seasons in the Islanders' organization. He had 24 points in 56 games with AHL Bridgeport in 2021-22, but the two-way nature of his deal suggests he'll mostly be a minor-league player going forward despite his NHL deal.

  • Islanders' Otto Koivula: Sticking with Isles

    Koivula signed a two-year, $1.6 million contract with the Islanders on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    The first year is two-way, while the second year is one-way, indicating the Islanders view Koivula as fully NHL ready by 2023-24. The 23-year-old center earned his first two NHL points, both assists, in eight games last season.

  • Islanders' Grant Hutton: Receives three-year deal

    Hutton signed a three-year contract with a $775,000 AAV with the Islanders on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    Hutton scored one goal in 16 appearances for the Islanders in 2021-22. The 26-year-old defenseman's new contract is two-way for next season and one-way for the two years after that, so it's possible the Indiana native could be an NHL regular by 2023-24.

  • Islanders' Ken Appleby: Inks new deal

    Appleby signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    Appleby has just three games of NHL experience under his belt, though he did receive an emergency recall this past April. The 27-year-old is little more than organizational depth for the Islanders, as he spent most of 2021-22 with ECHL Worcester.

  • Islanders' Isaiah George: First pick of Round 4

    George was selected 98th overall by the Islanders in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    OHL London has produced arguably more successful NHL players (Patrick Kane, Mitch Marner, Matthew Tkachuk) than any CHL program in history, and NHL clubs love drafting Knights players. George is a big (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) defenseman with excellent foot speed. The rest of his skill set could charitably be termed a work in progress. George lacks confidence in terms of making plays with the puck, and his hockey sense is questionable. He moves well enough to potentially carve out an NHL career at some point down the road, but it's going to be many years before New York sees any potential return on its investment here.

  • Islanders' Quinn Finley: Joins Islanders in Round 3

    Finley was selected 78th overall by the Islanders in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Finley has been on the prospect map for quite some time. He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 USHL Futures Draft by the Madison Capitols, and while his production a season ago was reasonable (12 goals, 29 points in 39 games) for a kid who played the entire year at age 17, more was expected. Finley looks the part of a potential future top-six forward with the puck on his stick, but his defensive play is questionable and there are consistency issues to work through here.

  • Islanders' Calle Odelius: Final selection of Round 2

    Odelius was selected 65th overall by the Islanders in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Odelius is an exceptional skater and when you move that fast and that fluidly there is always a case to be made adding a player with that skill set to your organization is a smart move. Odelius' offensive game is extremely basic, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. He gets the puck up and out of his own zone, typically with his feet, and doesn't try to do too much. It's difficult to envision Odelius developing into a point-producing threat at the NHL level, but he could certainly turn into a depth-regular with just minimal overall improvements to his game. Odelius will likely be stashed in his native Sweden the next couple seasons.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Newest member of Islanders

    The Canadiens traded Romanov and the 98th overall selection in this year's Entry Draft to the Islanders on Thursday in exchange for the 13th overall pick, Pierre Lebrun of The Athletic reports.

    Montreal immediately proceeded to trade the pick acquired from the Islanders to Chicago in a deal for center Kirby Dach. As far as Romanov goes, it seems like a hefty price to pay for a guy who posted just three goals and 13 points in 79 games a season ago, but New York was actively seeking multiple upgrades on defense and Romanov certainly qualifies. He'll log a ton of minutes for his new club, although the 22-year-old rearguard is a restricted free agent and will need a new contract prior to next season. Romanov is not eligible for an offer sheet from other NHL clubs because he doesn't have enough professional seasons under his belt.

  • Islanders' Ruslan Iskhakov: Signs entry-level deal

    Iskhakov signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Iskhakov spent 2021-22 with Adler Mannheim in the DEL, logging 22 points in 25 appearances as well as three goals in four games in the Champions Hockey League tournament. The Russian winger likely needs more time to develop on offense, so he'll probably play with AHL Bridgeport or get loaned out to another European team in 2022-23.

  • Islanders' Zdeno Chara: Future uncertain

    Chara finished what could be the last season of his Hall of Fame career with two goals, 12 assists, and a second-best team rating of plus-8.

    Chara has yet to decide on whether or not he will retire. The Islanders probably asked too much of the 45 years old to play almost 19 minutes of hockey each game this season. If Chara were to decide to return next season, it's unknown at this time if the Islanders would be interested in an encore.

  • Islanders' Ilya Sorokin: Outstanding sophomore season

    Sorokin was fantastic in his second season with the Islanders, as he posted a 2.40 GAA and .925 save percentage.

    Perhaps with more team success, Sorokin could have earned some Vezina Trophy consideration. His save percentage was second in the NHL, and his GAA was fourth. If you like advanced analytics, his 29.8 goals saved above average were second in the league behind only Igor Shesterkin of the Rangers. Sorokin is clearly in line to be the starting goaltender for the Islanders next season regardless of whether Semyon Varlamov remains with the team.

  • Islanders' Ryan Pulock: Ends season on high note

    Pulock had a point, two goals and two assists in the last four games of the season for the Islanders.

    Pulock had five goals and 21 points for the Islanders on the season in 56 games. This was a disappointing season for Pulock as the Islanders expected more offensively and defensively from the player they just signed to an eight-year, $49.2 million contract in October. Pulock did miss approximately 2.5 of the season due to a lower-body injury some shelf time due to COVID-19 protocols. Still, much more will be expected from Pulock next season.
