The New York Islanders and forward Colin McDonald have agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension, running through the 2014-15 season.

According to Arthur Staple of Newsday, it is a one-way deal worth $1.275 million.

McDonald, 28, has appeared in 24 games this season with the Islanders, scoring four goals and adding six assists, along with 25 penalty minutes. The 2003 second-round pick by Edmonton played two games with the Oilers in 2009-10 and five with Pittsburgh last season.

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.
