The New York Islanders have signed defenceman Calvin de Haan to a one-year contract worth $3.3 million.

De Haan had five goals and 20 assists this past season, both career highs, and was headed for arbitration as a restricted free agent.

The 26-year-old will see his role with the Islanders rise this season, with Travis Hamonic having been traded to Calgary.

He won a silver medal with Team Canada at the 2017 world championships back in May.

The Ottawa native was a first-round pick of the Islanders (12th overall) in 2009.

“Calvin is a home-grown product of the organization and has developed into one of our top defencemen during his time with the organization,” Islanders general manager Garth Snow said in a release. “He plays important minutes for our club and we’re excited to have him back for one more year.”
