The radio silence from the New York Islanders has ended. On Wednesday morning, the club officially announced multi-year deals with Ilya Sorokin, Kyle Palmieri, Casey Cizikas and Anthony Beauvillier.
The deal with Sorokin was arguably the most important. He’s reportedly getting a three-year deal with a $4 million AAV. He’s the goaltender of the future for the Islanders, so locking him up on a cost-effective bridge deal is huge. Semyon Varlamov has two years remaining on his current contract that carries a $5 million AAV.
