The New York Islanders have agreed to terms with forward Alan Quine — a two-year, $1.225 million deal with a $612,500 average annual cap hit.
Quine, 23, was a fifth-round pick in 2013 that’s spent the majority of his career in the minors. He made his NHL debut this past regular season, appearing in just two games, but was a notable contributor during the playoffs, scoring a goal and five points in 10 games.
The former OHL standout notched the biggest goal of his career in the Isles’ opening-round playoff victory over Florida, scoring the double-OT winner in Game 5.
Looking ahead, Quine should be in line for some extended minutes next year in Brooklyn. Up front, the Isles lost the likes of Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Matt Martin in free agency, though they did land one of the market’s biggest prizes in Andrew Ladd.
