The Islanders have signed Cal Clutterbuck to a four-year deal, the team announced Tuesday morning.
According to Newsday’s Arthur Staple, the deal is worth $11 million and has pushed the Islanders over the salary cap floor. The team still has to lockup RFA’s Josh Bailey and Thomas Hickey.
Clutterbuck was traded from the Minnesota Wild to the Islanders during the NHL draft. Up until this point, he had spent his entire career with the Wild organization, similar to recent Isles acquisition Pierre-Marc Bouchard. Last season Clutterbuck put up 10 points (four goals, six assists), and added another two points (one goal, one assist) in the playoffs.
