Islanders, veteran forward Pandolfo agree to terms on one-year deal

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Veteran forward Jay Pandolfo has agreed to terms with the New York Islanders on a one-year contract.

The Islanders announced the deal Tuesday, four days before they open the regular season at home against the Florida Panthers.

Pandolfo, a longtime member of the New Jersey Devils, made the team after being invited to camp on a tryout basis.

He had one assist in five exhibition games. Last season, Pandolfo signed a professional tryout agreement with Springfield of the AHL, and had two goals and four assists in 12 games.

In 14 years with the Devils, the 36-year-old Pandolfo had 99 goals and 124 assists in 819 career games. He has 11 goals and 22 assists in 131 playoff contests and won the Stanley Cup in 2000 and 2003.

The Islanders also said Tuesday they have agreed to terms with centre Ryan Strome on a three-year, entry-level deal. Strome was chosen fifth overall in this year's NHL draft.
