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.

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
