The New York Islanders have signed goaltender Cory Schneider, forward Nikita Soshnikov and defenseman Parker Wotherspoon to one-year contracts.
Schneider, 36, will continue to serve as a depth goaltender for the Islanders after playing in one game last season. He mainly played in the AHL with Bridgeport, recording a 14-11-6 record with one shutout in 30 games. He was part of the Isles' taxi squad in 2020-21, with his last real NHL starting duties coming back in 2017-18 when he played in 40 games with the New Jersey Devils.
Soshnikov, 28, has 87 games of NHL experience between St. Louis and Toronto, last playing for the Blues in 2018-19. He spent the past three years in the KHL, making his mark as a speedy playmaker. A player rarely gets a second shot at the NHL at his age, so it's a nice story.
Wotherspoon, 25, has yet to play an NHL game after spending the past five years in Bridgeport. A tough defenseman, he was the Islanders' last remaining RFA, and will likely return back to the minors.
