Sim re-signs with Isles
Veteran Sim re-signs with Isles
Jon Sim will remain a part of the New York Islanders' organization, as he signed a one-year deal with the club Tuesday morning.

Sim, 32, appeared in 77 games for the Isles last season. He had 13 goals, 9 assists and 44 penalty minutes. The Nova Scotia native became an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Unlike his previous contract with the Islanders -- a three-year deal that paid him $1 million annually -- Sim signed a two-way contract this time around.

In 435 NHL games, Sim has 74 goals and 61 assists. He's also 87-75-162 in 164 AHL contests. Sim was taken in the third round (No. 70) by the Dallas Stars in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.

— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin
