UNIONDALE, N.Y. – Dwayne Roloson is heading to the Island to help put off retirement.

The veteran goalie signed a two-year deal with the New York Islanders. He’ll be 41 when the contract expires.

Roloson appeared in 63 games for the Edmonton Oilers last season, finishing with a 28-24-9 record and a 2.77 goals-against average.

He helped the Oilers to the 2006 Stanley Cup final after being acquired from Minnesota at the trade deadline.

Edmonton was reluctant to offer the 39-year-old anything longer than a one-year deal.

In 462 career NHL games with Calgary, Minnesota and Edmonton, Roloson has 167 career wins and 23 shutouts.
