Ryan Pulock agreed to a contract reportedly for eight years with the New York Islanders on Thursday.

The 27-year-old defenseman confirmed the agreement before the Islanders' season-opening game at the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; TVAS, BSSO, MSG+, ESPN+, NHL LIVE). He could have become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Pulock scored 17 points (two goals, 15 assists) last season playing all 56 games and led New York in time on ice per game (22:26). He scored six points (four goals, two assists) in 19 Stanley Cup Playoff games for the Islanders, who were eliminated one round from the Stanley Cup Final for a second straight season. New York lost in seven games to the eventual champion Tampa Bay Lightning in the best-of-7 Stanley Cup Semifinals.

"For me, I just wanted to really be able to focus on this season and kind of clear my head of that (contract talk) and focus on what we need to accomplish here, and it's really exciting for me," Pulock said.

Pulock is part of New York's top defense pair with Adam Pelech, who agreed to an eight-year contract with the Islanders on Aug. 6.

Selected by the Islanders in the first round (No. 15) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Pulock has scored 125 points (33 goals, 92 assists) in 290 regular-season games and 20 points (seven goals, 13 assists) in 55 playoff games.

The crazy trades that built the 2021-22 New York Islanders

Elite Sports NY 14 October, 2021 - 12:00am

As the New York Islanders get ready to begin an exciting new season with legitimate Stanley Cup aspirations, it’s always fun to look back at how the team constructed the roster.

Building the roster took years of drafting well, signing the right free agents and dozens of trades.

How trades play out sometimes takes years — and subsequent trades — to fully evaluate. And, in the case of the Islanders, many of the trades and players who will make an impact in the coming season overlap.

In fact, it may take you a moment or two to fully appreciate the trade sequences that led to the current Islanders’ roster. It’s mind-numbing how many players involved in other trades have ultimately led to the current roster.

Here’s how some of the key players landed on the 2021-22 Islanders’ roster. We’ll start if off easy…

On Feb. 24, 2020 the Islanders acquired Pageau from the Ottawa Senators for conditional first-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft (Ridly Greig), a second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft (Roni Hirvonen) and conditional third-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

Ottawa’s Ridly Greig has been suspended for one preseason game and one regular season game for Cross-checking Winnipeg’s Pierre-Luc Dubois. https://t.co/UCkb3VefXH
