NHL veterans Mike Dunham and Richard Park attending camp as tryouts
The Islanders have signed forward Viktor Kozlov to a one-year contract. Last season with the New Jersey Devils, the 6-5, 230-pound center/right wing had 12 goals and 13 assists in 69 games and was 8 for 12 in the shootout.
"Viktor brings a lot to the table," said Islanders general manager Garth Snow. "He can be a center or wing on any of our top three lines and be solid in all zones. This is an excellent addition for our team as we head into training camp."
In 668 NHL regular season games with San Jose, Florida and New Jersey, the 31-year old Kozlov is 144-247-391. He was originally selected sixth overall by the Sharks in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft.
The Islanders also announced that veterans Mike Dunham and Richard Park will attend training camp on a tryout basis.
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.
The 30-year old Park played 60 games for Vancouver last season and has played 368 over his NHL career, primarily with the Minnesota Wild. The native of Seoul, South Korea is considered an excellent skater and aggressive defensive forward.
