The New York Islanders have signed goaltender Mike Dunham to a one-year contract. The nine-year veteran joined the Islanders as a training camp invitee earlier in the month and has played in all of the teams first three pre-season games.
"It became clear in the past few weeks that signing Mike was a priority," said Islanders General Manager Garth Snow. "He possesses all the characteristics that we look for in a player and has already shown that he'll be an asset to our club."
Over a nine-year NHL career with New Jersey, Nashville, the Rangers and Atlanta, the 34-year old Dunham has a goals-against average of 2.69 and a .908 save percentage. Last season with the Thrashers, Dunham was 8-5-0 with a 2.77 GAA and .893 save percentage.
