Top Islanders News

  • Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Signs one-year deal

    Holmstrom signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with the Islanders on Tuesday, per PuckPedia.

    Holmstrom and the Islanders were able to work out a deal outside of his qualifying offer, which would have paid him marginally more. That would have been a two-way agreement, but the contract Holmstrom penned instead is a one-way deal, which suggests the team has faith in the winger spending most of the year in the NHL. He produced 25 points over 75 regular-season outings in 2023-24, playing mainly in a middle-six role, though he also shot 20.8 percent, which makes him a candidate for regression.

  • Islanders' Jesse Pulkkinen: Agrees to entry-level contract

    Pulkkinen signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders on Monday.

    Pulkkinen notched two goals and eight points in 29 regular-season outings for JYP of Finland's Liiga in 2023-24. The Islanders selected the 19-year-old defender with the No. 54 overall pick in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft. He is expected to return to Finland for the 2024-25 campaign.

  • Islanders' Tyce Thompson: Inks new deal

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

    Thompson was acquired by the Islanders in November of 2023 in a minor-league trade. The 24-year-old has just 11 games of NHL experience, and none of them came in 2023-24, so it's likely that he'll spend most of the upcoming campaign at AHL Bridgeport.

  • Islanders' Liam Foudy: Finds work with Isles

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

    Foudy is a veteran of 102 NHL games over the last five seasons, but he has just seven goals and 15 assists to his name. He split time between the Blue Jackets and Predators last season. Foudy offers modest physicality that will likely help his cause, but he's not a lock to make the Islanders' Opening Night roster.

  • Islanders' Ruslan Iskhakov: Returning to Russia

    Iskhakov signed a contract with CSKA Moscow of the KHL on Wednesday, Ethan Sears of the New York Post reports.

    Iskhakov played in one regular-season contest and one playoff game, earning an assist in his only NHL action. The undersized winger has seemingly been surpassed on the organization depth chart, so he'll head home to Russia to play for the first time since 2017-18. The Islanders will retain his NHL rights since he was given a qualifying offer.

  • Islanders' Marc Gatcomb: Gets one-year ELC

    Gatcomb signed a one-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders on Tuesday, per PuckPedia.

    Gatcomb, an undrafted center, has taken the long way to getting an NHL deal after a four-year career at the University of Connecticut and three years in the minors. After posting 20 points over 61 regular-season outings with AHL Abbotsford last year, he's likely to report to AHL Bridgeport in 2024-25.

  • Islanders' Fredrik Karlstrom: Gets one-way deal from Isles

    Karlstrom signed a one-year, $775,000 contract with the Islanders on Tuesday, per PuckPedia.

    Karlstrom spent last year with AHL Texas on a two-way deal, so it's a slight upgrade that he was able to find a one-way contract for 2024-25. Karlstrom has just one assist over eight career NHL appearances, but he put up 44 points in 72 AHL contests last season, so he may be able to provide some depth scoring if he makes the Islanders' roster out of training camp.

  • Islanders' Mike Reilly: Signs one-year deal

    Reilly inked a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Islanders on Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    Reilly was picked up off waivers by the Isles back in late November and went on to play in 59 regular-season contests for the club. The veteran blueliner notched six goals and 18 assists, crossing the 20-point threshold for just the second time in his career. He'll likely remain in a bottom-four role and could be an option for the second power-play unit.

  • Islanders' Anthony Duclair: Secures four-year contract

    Duclair agreed to terms on a four-year, $14 million contract with the Islanders on Monday.

    Duclair split the 2023-24 campaign between the Sharks and the Lightning, logging 73 regular-season games in which he garnered 24 goals and 18 assists, including 12 power-play points. Looking ahead to the upcoming season, Duclair is far from a lock to secure top-six minutes, though he should at least have a role with the No. 2 power play. If he can break into the top six and sneak onto the top power-play unit, Duclair could push for the 30-goal threshold.

  • Islanders' Marcus Gidlof: Value pick at No. 147

    Gidlof was the 147th overall pick by the Islanders in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.

    It's not a stretch to say that size is an important attribute for most NHL clubs when evaluating goaltenders, and at 6-foot-6, they don't get much bigger than Gidlof. Not only is he massive in the net, but he also plays big. He cuts down angles well and gives opposing shooters very little to aim for. There are some consistency issues to work through, which is commonplace for most young netminders, but Gidlof has a boatload of long-term potential for the Islanders.

  • Islanders' Jesse Pulkkinen: Upside play for Isles in Round 2

    Pulkkinen was the 54th overall pick by the Islanders in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.

    On the strength of notable advancements in his offensive game, Pulkkinen, who was passed over in the 2023 Draft, showed enough promise this past season to make himself a second-round selection just a year later. For starters, Pulkkinen is massive. At 6-foot-6, he's not a true bruiser, but is excellent at using his long reach to break up plays. His puck-handling abilities have really improved, and he has the big point shot you often associate with rearguards this size. Set to turn 20 years of age in December, Pulkkinen is nearly two years older than some of the first-year eligible players in this draft, and that has to be taken into consideration, but the fact the Islanders were willing to pull the trigger on him at this stage suggests they're more than content at where is development is at heading into the 2024-25 campaign.

  • Islanders' Cole Eiserman: Slips all the way to 20th

    Eiserman was the 20th overall pick by the Islanders at the 2024 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Eiserman is one of the best scorers in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft, maybe even the best. And he's definitely the top power-play threat in this class. The guy scores with ease and without warning, from every area of the ice -- he scored more than a goal-per-game (127 in 119 games) in the US National Development Team Program (NDTP). The rest of Eiserman's game is the question, and it's why he dropped from the top of this draft class to 20th. He's a strong skater, but a disappearing defender, and his play away from the puck often looks like it's a chore. Still, he plays hard and with a bit of coaching, Eiserman could be the guy that the Isles PP1 flows through. He doesn't need to drive plays; he simply needs someone to feed him the puck. Worst case, he's a second-line goal scorer. Eiserman is off to Boston U in September.

  • Islanders' Kyle MacLean: Inks three-year deal

    MacLean signed a three-year contract with the Islanders on Wednesday.

    New York didn't release the financial details of the deal, but CapFriendly later reported that MacLean will carry a $775,000 cap hit. The 25-year-old had four goals, nine points, 11 PIM and 60 hits in 32 regular-season outings with the Islanders in 2023-24. He also collected six goals, 22 points and 32 PIM in 43 regular-season appearances with AHL Bridgeport, though the one-way nature of this deal suggests he is likely to stick at the NHL level.

  • Islanders' Jesse Nurmi: Signs entry-level contract

    Nurmi signed an entry-level contract with the Islanders on Monday, per PuckPedia.

    Nurmi played with KooKoo in Finland's Liiga last season, earning two assists over 19 appearances. He also had five points over 10 contests in international play and eight points in six games with KooKoo's under-20 team. Selected 113th overall in 2023, Nurmi's game likely still needs some refinement, whether that's in his native Finland or in the AHL.

  • Islanders' Maxim Tsyplakov: Inks one-year deal

    Tsyplakov signed a one-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders on Thursday.

    Tsyplakov had 31 goals and 47 points in 63 regular-season contests with the KHL's Moscow Spartak in 2023-24. The 25-year-old also contributed two goals and four points across 12 KHL playoff appearances this year. Tsyplakov should enter training camp with a serious shot of making the Islanders' roster.

  • Islanders' Marcus Hogberg: Inks two-year deal

    Hogberg signed a two-year contract with the Islanders on Tuesday.

    Hogberg had a solid season in the SHL, logging a .914 save percentage and a 2.51 goals against average in 40 appearances. The 29-year-old will look to regain his touch in the NHL after spending three years in the SHL. He will attempt to make the roster come October and could even be the team's backup netminder should Semyon Varlamov or Ilya Sorokin not return to the fold.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Set for MRI

    Martin (lower body) is expected to undergo an MRI in the coming days, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports Friday.

    Martin was sidelined for the final two postseason contests due to his lower-body issue. Unless the MRI results come back with something more serious, the team may not provide much of an update heading into the offseason. Even if there is a long-term concern that carries into the 2024-25 campaign, Martin's lack of offensive upside means a potential absence is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players.

  • Islanders' Scott Mayfield: Expects to be ready for 2024-25

    Mayfield, who suffered a fractured ankle in the 2023-24 season opener, should be ready for the 2024-25 campaign, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports Friday.

    Mayfield told reporters that his ankle injury never fully healed, which forced him to undergo surgery in February. Despite his ankle problem, the veteran blueliner still appeared in 41 games this year, recording five assists, 70 hits and 36 shots over that span.
