Islanders re-sign captain Weight

Tuesday, 08.31.2010 / 11:55 AM / NHL Free Agency 2010
The New York Islanders on Tuesday agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension with team captain Doug Weight.

The 39-year-old veteran of 19 NHL seasons returns for his third season with the Islanders. In 36 games last season, he had 1 goal and 16 assists. He missed much of the season with a shoulder injury.

"Doug has played an important role in helping to develop our young players over the past two seasons and we're excited to see him continue his historic career on Long Island," Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said in a statement.

Weight, a four-time NHL All-Star, was named the 12th captain in Islanders history Oct. 2, 2009. Originally drafted by the New York Rangers in the second round (No. 34) of the 1990 Entry Draft, Weight has 276 goals and 748 assists for 1,024 points in 1,220 NHL games with the Rangers, Edmonton Oilers, St. Louis Blues, Carolina Hurricanes, Anaheim Ducks and the Islanders. In 2006, Weight helped the Hurricanes capture their first Stanley Cup in team history and the only one of Weight’s career. Weight reached the 1,000-point milestone with the Islanders on Jan. 2, 2009, becoming the eighth U.S.-born player and 73rd NHL player to reach 1,000 points.

Coyotes happy to have Stempniak back at fair price

Lee Stempniak was forced to wait it out and let the market set itself, but in the end the offer he got from the Phoenix Coyotes was enough to keep him in the desert for at least two more seasons.

Stempniak, who had 14 goals in 18 games as a Coyote at the end of last season, has signed a two-year contract that reportedly pays him an annual average salary of $1.9 million, with a lower dollar figure in year one ($1.5 million) and a higher figure in year two ($2.3 million) so it matches up with the Coyotes' 2010-11 budget.

The money is less than what Stempniak made last season (reportedly $3.5 million), but Coyotes GM Don Maloney, who traded for the right wing at the deadline, pointed out the market is vastly different this summer and Stempniak was caught in the middle.

Report: Rangers sign Kennedy

Tim Kennedy won't have to leave New York to continue his burgeoning career in the NHL. The former Buffalo Sabre is reportedly heading south to the Big Apple and will join the Rangers on a one-year, one-way contract worth $550,000.

After scoring 26 points in 78 games as a rookie last season, Kennedy was awarded $1 million for a one-year deal in an arbitration hearing earlier this summer. The Sabres decided to buy out that contract and let the 24-year-old Buffalo native become an unrestricted free agent.

Kennedy scored 10 goals and added 16 assists in his rookie season, and he could find himself in the mix at the center position, according to a report in The Bergen Record.

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with centre Sam Gagner on a two-year deal.

The 5'11", 191-pound London, Ontario native has three seasons under his belt after having put up 49 points (13G, 36A) in his rookie year, where he was named to the 2008 NHL YoungStars Game in Atlanta.  He scored 41 points (16G, 25A) in his sophomore year.
