Radek Martinek Agrees To One-Year Deal

Veteran Defenseman Rejoins Islanders After Playing Nine Previous Seasons on Long Island

The New York Islanders announced today that Radek Martinek has agreed to terms on a one-year deal.

Martinek, 36, has appeared in 460 career National Hockey League games, including 453 with the Islanders. A native of Havlicko Brod, Czech Republic, Martinek has 22 goals and 82 assists for 104 career points. He’s also appeared in nine career playoff games, all with the Islanders.

The Islanders selected Martinek in the eighth round (228th overall) of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. The 6’2, 210-pound defenseman spent the 2011-12 season with the Columbus Blue Jackets, but was limited to seven games due to injury.

Martinek played in four games this season in the Czech league with Ceske Budejovice, the same club with which he spent the 2004-05 lockout season and five professional campaigns from 1996-2001 prior to joining the Islanders. On the international stage, Martinek has represented the Czech Republic at three World Championships (2000, 2001, 2011).
