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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
