The New York Islanders announced a four-year contract extension for Matt Martin on Saturday night.

Martin had seven goals and 14 points in 80 games for the Islanders last season. A fifth-round pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, Martin has 12 goals, 30 points and 294 penalty minutes in 153 career NHL games.

Katie Strang of ESPN New York reported the deal is worth $1 million per season. The 23-year-old Martin was a restricted free agent, and this deal will keep him under contract through the 2016-17 campaign.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
