Forward Matt Martin is returning to Long Island.
The Islanders made a deal with the Maple Leafs to send G Eamon McAdam in return for Martin, who they drafted in the fifth round back in 2008. In the deal, the Islanders are taking on Martin's $2.5 million he is owed this season and the 2019-2020 season as well.
Martin played seven seasons for the Islanders, where he totaled 88 points (42 goals, 46 assists) in that span. Even more impressive was winning five straight Bob Nystrom Awards, which goes to the Islander that best exemplifies leadership, hustle and dedication.
Lamoriello, who was with the Maple Leafs at the time, signed Martin before the 2016-17 season. He spent the past two seasons with the Leafs, totaling 21 points (eight goals, 13 assists) over 132 games.
