The New York Islanders are following the NHL's expansion draft rules after all, as the club re-signed defenseman Andy Greene to a one-year, $1-million contract, The Athletic's Arthur Staple reports.

New York needed to ink at least one defenseman who meets the requirement for exposure by 5 p.m. ET on Saturday. Staple added that the Islanders submitted their list by the deadline, and Greene meets the criteria.
