Moulson Commits Long Term

Some positive news emerged for the Islanders today, as they signed potential free agent winger Matt Moulson to a three year contract.

Moulson, one of the most prolific scorers among the current Islanders, led the team in goals (30) in 2009-2010 and is 47-30-77 during his career with the team.

While I didn't speak with Mouslon directly, shorty after the news broke Moulson used social media to tell his fans he was "extremely excited to have another 3 years with a great organization...I love LI and am honored to be a part of this team."

I know the fans are equally pleased to keep the 27-year old Ontario native in New York as well. He is a terrific presence for John Tavares in the locker room, extremely affable, and a fine interview on most nights. His hockey skills are an added bonus, in my view.

Kudos to Garth Snow and Islanders management for holding on to a vital asset.
