SATAN COMES TO LONG ISLAND
Three-Year Deal Brings Scoring Star to the Islanders

One of the NHL's most prolific goal scorers is now a member of the New York Islanders.

The Islanders have signed unrestricted free agent forward Miroslav Satan to a  three-year  contract. In his last six seasons, the 30-year old Satan has scored 194 goals, tied for ninth in the NHL.

"We were looking  for a star-calibre scorer to add to our offense, and we have  landed  one  of the best in Miroslav," said Islanders general manager Mike  Milbury.  "He's  an ideal complement to the rest of our top forwards. This is a huge signing for us."

The  6-3, 200-pound  Satan  has  appeared in two NHL All-Star Games (2000, 2002),  one  Stanley  Cup  Final (1999) and has represented Slovakia at the Olympics,  World  Championships and World Cup of Hockey. In 2003-04, he was 29-28-57 in 82 games with the Buffalo Sabres.

Satan was a Sabre for the last seven-plus seasons after arriving in a trade from  the  Edmonton  Oilers  on  March  18, 1997 for Barrie Moore and Craig Millar.  He  was  originally selected by Edmonton in the fifth round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft.
