Islanders sign defenseman Wishart

Defenseman Ty Wishart has agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with the New York Islanders, the team announced Wednesday.

Wishart, 24, had five goals and 14 assists with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League last season. He appeared in one game with the Islanders.

A first-round pick (No. 16) of the San Jose Sharks in the 2006 NHL Draft, Wishart was acquired in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Jan. 2, 2011 in exchange for Dwayne Roloson.

In 26 NHL games with the Lighting and Islanders, he has one goal and five assists with a plus-5 rating and 10 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
