 The New York Islanders re-signed goalie Evgeni Nabokov and defenseman Travis Hamonic, and still had time and money to add two forwards in free agency on Friday.
Nabokov will return after signing a one-year, $3.25 million contract. Hamonic agreed to a seven-year, $27 million deal after the Islanders had previously retained the rights to the restricted free agent.
New York then added to its roster by signing forwards Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Peter Regin both to one-year deals. Bouchard's contract is worth $2 million.
Navokov was a key move for the team's immediate future and settled its goaltending position.
The 37-year-old Nabokov went 23-11-7 with three shutouts in helping the Islanders reach the playoffs for the first time since 2007. New York was in need of veteran goaltending help after buying out the contract of Rick DiPietro.
Hamonic's signing was a big step in the Islanders' long-term future.
``We are excited to come to terms with Travis, who is an important part of our young core,'' general manager Garth Snow said. ``He has shown he can play important minutes in any situation.''
The team's 2008 second-round draft pick has 10 goals and 50 assists in 183 games over three seasons.
Hamonic had three goals and seven assists and averaged nearly 23 minutes of ice time in 48 games last season.
Bouchard is a dependable left wing who spent his first 10 seasons with Minnesota. He has 106 goals and 241 assists in 565 NHL games.
Regin spent the past five seasons with the Ottawa Senators.
He managed just three assists in 27 games last season. Regin set career highs with 13 goals and 29 points in 75 games in the 2009-10 season.
