Goaltender Kevin Poulin and the New York Islanders have agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Thursday. The signing avoids a salary arbitration hearing.

Financial terms were not released, but Tim Wharnsby of the CBC reported the contract will pay Poulin $650,000 in the NHL and $175,000 in the minors.

Poulin, 24, went 11-16-1 with an .891 save percentage and a 3.29 goals-average against in 28 games for the Islanders last season.

A fifth-round pick (No. 126) by the Islanders in the 2008 NHL Draft, Poulin has a .900 save percentage and 3.08 goals against average in 49 career NHL games.
