Islanders, Moulson, agree to 3-year deal

Note: If you're landing on this page from a direct link, we have more thoughts on how the Moulson contract fits here.

The New York Islanders announced today that left wing Matt Moulson has agreed to terms on a three-year contract. Moulson, 27, has 29 points (17 goals, 12 assists) in 49 games this season in his second season with the Islanders. 

Last year, the North York, ON, native led all Islanders in goals (30), while also establishing career highs in assists (18), points (48) and games played (82). Moulson has yet to miss a game through his two seasons with the Islanders, currently leading the team with 131 consecutive games played.

You may now exhale. Consider this your All-Star Break present.

We'll update this post when more info becomes available. Mean time, anyone want to guess on the figures? (without peeking, you -- but the figure is in this Katie Strang tweet) Okay, since everyone knows, and no one else guessed before they knew, Strang reports it's for $9.4 million. Not bad for either side, given a not-young-but-not-old winger who is nearly on pace for a second-consecutive 30-goal season and has yet to miss a game.

Here's Moulson's post-game interview from last night's loss, showing a bit of why he's liked and why he wants to remain an Islander.
