UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -Center Richard Park signed a two-year extension with the New York Islanders through the 2010 season.
Park had 10 goals and a career-high 16 assists last season, his first with the Islanders after attending training camp on a tryout.
``To say I'm happy would be an understatement,'' Park said in a release Sunday. ``Since the first day of training camp last year, I was determined to make the most of the chance Garth Snow and Ted Nolan gave me.''
The 31-year-old has 60 goals and 73 assists in 452 career regular-season games with the Islanders, Pittsburgh, Anaheim, Philadelphia, Minnesota and Vancouver. He was originally drafted 50th overall by Pittsburgh in 1994.
``Richard exemplifies the type of character players we want to be New York Islanders,'' said GM Garth Snow. ``He's a team-first guy who plays with his heart on his sleeve and battles every shift.''
