The New York Islanders have avoided arbitration with defenceman Calvin de Haan, reaching a one-year deal with the defenceman. According to multiple reports, the Islanders signed de Haan to a $3.3 million contract before entering their hearing on Wednesday. The team did not disclose terms. He scored five goals and added 20 assists in 82 games with the Islanders last season, his fourth with the team. The 26-year-old ranked fifth on the team in average ice time last season, with an average of 19:51, slotting in behind Nick Leddy, Johnny Boychuk, Travis Hamonic and John Tavares. Hamonic was traded to the Calgary Flames earlier this off-season.
