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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
