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.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
