UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -New York Islanders left wing Matt Moulson has agreed to a one-year contract worth $2.45 million.
The agreement was announced Tuesday by general manager Garth Snow and allowed the Islanders to avoid arbitration. Snow says Moulson played an "integral" role last season and is part of the team's "young core of players."
Moulson led the Islanders with a career-high 30 goals as New York finished last in the Atlantic Division. His 48 points were fourth on the team. Moulson was one of three Islanders to play all 82 games. He led the team with five winning goals.
