New York Islanders agree four-year deal with Cal Clutterbuck

Published Add your comment

The New York Islanders have today announced that Cal Clutterbuck has put pen to paper on a four-year contract.

The former Minnesota Wild forward's deal is understood to be worth around $11million, with an annual average value of $2.75million against the Islanders' salary cap.

Clutterbuck was traded for the first time in his career, in exchange for fellow right-wing Nino Niederreiter, and a third-round pick in the 2013 draft for the Islanders.

The 25-year-old scored 10 points and a team-high 155 hits in 42 games for Minnesota in 2012/13, with another two points in five games in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, adding to his career record of 110 points in 346 NHL appearances.

Clutterbuck is best known for his aggressive and physical style of play, which often results in him being among the league leaders in terms of hits. However, it's an area of his game the attracts a little too much attention, overshadowing the fact he's a solid all-round player.

The Islanders are building an exciting, young team for the 2013/14 campaign, and with the addition of players like Clutterbuck, Matt Martin and Kyle Okposo on the roster they'll be a very physical team as well.
