The New York Islanders announced Friday that they have agreed to terms with forward, Matt Martin to a three-year entry level contract.
“We are excited to have Matt in our organization,” said Garth Snow, General Manager, New York Islanders. “He brings that special combination of size and ability that provide him a bright future as a professional.”
Martin is a player that many fans wanted signed before training camp. Another draft pick (5th round) by the Islanders from last year. He very well could be a diamond in the rough, and at 6'2" and 192 pounds, he still has some filling out to do, but brings a good amount of size and skill. Bridgeport should look really good this year with a lot of prospects ready to prove they belong. Martin may also see some NHL time, if the injury bug hits the Islanders hard again.
