Islanders Sign Clutterbuck To 4 Year Contract

According to the Islanders official twitter, the team has signed forward Cal Clutterbuck to a 4 year deal worth 11 million dollars.  Clutterbuck was acquired in a draft day trade with the Wild along with a third round pick in exchange for disgruntled former top prospect Nino Niederreiter.  Clutterbuck had been a restricted free agent.

Clutterbuck had 10 points in 42 games last season and over 150 hits.  Prior to Matt Martin holding the record for most hits in a season, that record was held by Clutterbuck with 356 as a rookie.  Clutterbuck has averaged around 14 goals per season thus far in his 4 and a half year NHL career.  His scoring ability plus his ability to be an agitator and hit people will fit in perfectly with the Islanders and their system they started developing late last season.
