UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -The New York Islanders traded troubled forward Chris Simon to the Minnesota Wild for a sixth-round pick in this year's draft.
Dealing Simon just before the NHL trade deadline Tuesday ended his eventful two-year stay with the Islanders. He missed 35 games this season while serving a pair of long suspensions.
The Islanders also dealt defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron to the Anaheim Ducks for a third-round choice in the upcoming draft. That capped a busy day in which the team signed leading scorer Mike Comrie to a one-year, $1 million deal.
