Islanders re-sign G Nabokov to 1-year contract
NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Islanders have agreed to re-sign goalie Evgeni Nabokov, and have added two more players in the first hour of the NHL's free-agency period.
The team announced Friday that it had also agreed to sign forwards Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Peter Regin to one-year deals.
Nabokov was the key move for the Islanders. The 37-year-old had a 23-11-7 record and three shutouts in helping new York reach the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The Islanders were in need of goaltending help entering this offseason after buying out the contract of veteran Rick DiPietro.
Bouchard is a dependable left wing, who spent his first 10 seasons in Minnesota. He has 347 points (106 goals, 241 assists) in 565 career games.
Regin spent the past five seasons in Ottawa.
