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.
