The New York Islanders announced today that Cal Clutterbuck has agreed to terms on a four-year contract.

According to Arthur Staple of Newsday, the contract will pay him $11 million over the four years, which comes out to a salary cap hit of $2.75 million. He made only $1.4 million per year over the past three years while playing with the Minnesota Wild.

The 25 year old Clutterbuck was drafted in the third-round in 2006. To date, he has 62 goals and 110 points in 346 games for the Wild and is coming off of a less than desirable campaign that saw him record only four goals and six assists in 42 games. The Islanders acquired Clutterbuck, 25, from the Wild during the NHL Draft in exchange for talented forward Nino Niederreiter.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
