Islanders website: Reports the club has come to terms with terms on a one-year, two-way (NHL/AHL) contract with forward Jeremy Yablonski.

General Manager, Garth Snow comments on the signing. Has statistical background on Yablonski.

NYIFC Comments:
Obviously a depth signing for Bridgeport, but begs the question, why buy-out a younger enforcer-type, who was given a three year contract in Joel Rechlicz, with Trevor Gillies also likely being used in Bridgeport?

I have no knowledge of Jeremy Yablonski, but added in Mr Fornabaio's blog entry here with his thoughts on this signing. He has wondered if there is a strategy to replace Greg Mauldin, Trevor Smith, and for now Sean Bentivoglio's production, which are very fair questions.

Bridgeport was not a high scoring team with those veterans.
