The New York Islanders announced today that left wing Matt Moulson has agreed to terms on a three-year contract.
Moulson, 27, has 29 points (17 goals, 12 assists) in 49 games this season in his second season with the Islanders.
Last year, the North York, ON, native led all Islanders in goals (30), while also establishing career highs in assists (18), points (48) and games played (82). Moulson has yet to miss a game through his two seasons with the Islanders, currently leading the team with 131 consecutive games played.
Moulson was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the ninth round, 263rd overall, of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He began his professional career in 2006 with the American Hockey League affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings, the Manchester Monarchs. In each of the following three seasons with the Monarchs, Moulson tallied over 45 points respectively.
Prior to beginning his professional career, the 6’1”, 210-pound forward enjoyed a four-year career at Cornell University.
