Islanders, Matthew Barzal Agree To Three-Year, $21M Deal 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Jan 9, 2021 8:45 pm

Mathew Barzal joined the New York Islanders on the ice Saturday for his first practice of training camp after agreeing to a three-year, $21 million contract.

\"I love the game, and I was anxious,\'\' Barzal said. \'\'I wanted to get out with the boys.\'\'

The 23-year-old star forward missed the first few days of camp as the NHL\'s most prominent unsigned restricted free agent. General manager Lou Lamoriello was confident a deal would get done, and it happened five days before the Islanders open the season at the rival New York Rangers.
