Islanders agree to deals with C Cizikas, D de Haan

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - The New York Islanders agreed to terms with centre Casey Cizikas and defenceman Calvin de Haan on Tuesday.

Cizikas, 23, got a two-year contract. He scored six goals and 10 assists last season, his second full year with the club. In 2013, he had a game-winning goal in a playoff series against Pittsburgh.

The 23-year-old de Haan received a three-year deal. He scored three goals and had 13 assists in 51 games as a rookie, and showed solid improvement throughout the season.

He began the 2013-14 season with Bridgeport of the AHL before earning a call-up to the Islanders on Nov. 28.

The Islanders selected de Haan in the first round, 12th overall, of the 2009 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
