Islanders Sign Brian Strait to Three-Year Contract Extension
18 minutes ago

The New York Islanders announced today that defenseman Brian Strait has agreed to terms on a three-year contract.

Strait, 25, has played in all six Islanders games this season since he was claimed off waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins on January 18, 2013. Prior to joining the Islanders, Strait had appeared in 12 NHL games with the Penguins, collecting one assist and four penalty minutes. The Penguins selected the 6'1, 200-pound defenseman in the third round (65th overall) of the 2006 NHL Draft.

In 220 career American Hockey League games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the Boston, MA, native has 40 points (eight goals, 32 assists) with a plus-46 rating.

Strait played three years of college hockey at Boston University, highlighted by a NCAA National Championship in 2009, his final season with the team. He also spent two seasons with the United States National Development Team in 2004-05 and 2005-06.

On the international stage, Strait played for the U.S. National Team at the 2008 World Junior Championships and the 2006 Under-18 World Championships, winning gold as team captain in 2006.



So much for our theory that they'll probably boot his ass onto waivers when Lubo shows up. Posted Image

Maybe they know something about Visnovsky that we don't. Either that or Snow is sticking it in Shero's ass.

There's a rumor out there, so take this fwiw, but the story is that Shero was offering Strait around in a trade offering, but got no takers. Isles and another team were semi-interested at the time, but realized Shero was gonna have to pass him through waivers if he couldn't deal him away and they just waited it out. Obviously, Waiver Wire Wang's boys grabbed him right away.


Like I said, it's a rumor, but it sounds reasonable. Shero has nobody to blame but himself for putting himself into that asset management pickle.
