The Islanders have signed four-time NHL all-star and three-time United States Olympian Bill Guerin to a two-year contract. The 36-year old Guerin is coming off a 36-goal season with St. Louis and San Jose and has 364 goals and 355 assists for 719 points in 1,026 career NHL games.

"My family and I are so happy to be coming to Long Island," said Guerin. "Garth Snow first contacted me on Sunday and was so positive, so persistent right from the outset explaining to me why I would be ideal for his team. Ownership's commitment to winning at almost every cost and Garth making it clear to how determined he is to build a winner is why I'm an Islander today."

Said Snow: "Bill Guerin, by everyone's account, is the consummate professional, the ultimate teammate. And beyond that, he's an outstanding hockey player coming off a 36-goal season. The Islanders are extremely proud that Bill has made the decision to come to Long Island."

Guerin has played on the United States Olympic Team in 1998, 2002 and 2006 and in the NHL All-Star Game in 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2007.


Isles Press Release

Good move for 2 years at a reasonable price ($9 mil total).

Yeah and apparently Mike Comrie isnt far behind. Its good to see we are doing something to salvage this offseason. I think with a defensman or 2 we will be a competitive team again. Of course i dont see the Stanley Cup or anything but at least we wont be looking at the bottom of the pack

He has more rabbits then draft picks..

BTW, Comrie was a real good signing. Gueren, well I would give it an OK.

I agree.

Comrie showed me a side of his game in the playoffs that I didn't think he had in him.

Too bad we won't see him in the playoffs the next 2 seasons.

:P

Guerin is an OK signing and would have been a great one a few years back.

Guerin was also named captain by the Isles.

The jury is still out, but Snow has made some intriguing moves as GM, which is impressive considering the fact that he went straight from journeyman player to GM.
