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.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
