The New York Islanders announced today that goaltender Thomas Greiss has agreed to terms on a three-year contract.

Greiss, 31, has a 14-7-3 record with a 2.25 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage this season. His save percentage ranks fifth in the National Hockey League amongst goaltenders who've played at least 10 games.

Last season, after posting a 23-11-4 record during his first regular season with the Islanders, Greiss backstopped the club to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in 23 years.

In 155 career NHL games with the San Jose Sharks, Phoenix Coyotes and Pittsburgh Penguins, he's recorded a 73-48-18 record with a .919 save percentage and a 2.40 goals-against average. The Islander acquired Greiss as a free agent on July 1, 2015.

The San Jose Sharks selected Greiss in the third round (94th overall) of the 2004 National Hockey League Draft. The 6'1, 220-pound netminder has also appeared in 142 American Hockey League games with the Worcester Sharks.

On the international stage, Greiss represented Germany at the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics, the 2016 World Championships and the 2004, 2005 and 2006 World Junior Championships. He was also selected to Team Europe at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey
