Islanders website: Announced Wednesday 4/20 that they have agreed to terms with forward Tyler McNeely on a one-year, two-way (NHL/AHL) contract.

Robin Figren, a restricted free agent has left the organization and signed in Europe with Linköping.

NYIFC Comments:
Figren's loss is not a footnote.

Figren was a third round pick in 2006, who the club put a lot of time and expense into so this is not a small loss by any means because after playing with the Oil Kings WHL (some may recall his wrist injury) the Islanders signed him but he wanted to play the first year of his contract in SEL with Djurgardens, his first year with Bridgeport was a learning experience but last season produced fourteen goals/thirty points.

As for Tyler McNeely, he had a good finish coming out of North Eastern University where he played the last four years before finishing season with Bridgeport.

Wetaskiwin Times: Report Bryan Trottier was mobbed for autographs at a 4/10 tournament.
