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.

I don't know the room very well yet. I don't know how we're going to react in certain situations. We've had a couple of minor tests throughout the [preseason] ... We'll get to know each other as the year goes on. We'll figure it out.
