The New York Islanders have announced that they and goalie Kevin Poulin, have reached an agreement for a one-year, two-way contract.
Last season Poulin played probably more than the Islanders would have liked with injuries and poor play from Evgeni Nabokov. In 28 games last season, Poulin had a record of 11-16-1, with a save percentage of .891. He did allow quite a number of goals per game, at 3.29 per.
This off-season, the Islanders have done a very good job of addressing the goaltender situation by signing Jaroslav Halak from the Washington Capitals, and Chad Johnson from the Boston Bruins.
