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

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
