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

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
