ISLANDERS RE-SIGN DEFENSEMAN TOMI PETTINEN
Former 9th round pick expected to challenge for full-time NHL job

The Islanders have re-signed defenseman Tomi Pettinen to a one-year contract. Pettinen will be at Islanders training camp when it opens Sept. 12 in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

"Tomi has had two strong seasons for us in Bridgeport and was outstanding last season back home in Finland," said Islanders general manager Mike Milbury. "We'll see what happens in camp, but we feel he could be ready for the NHL."

Pettinen, 28, appeared in 56 games last season with Lukko Rauma of the Finnish Elite League, recording 20 points (6+14) and 49 penalty minutes. In nine playoff games, he collected two assists and 33 penalty minutes.

The 6-4, 220-pound native of Ylojarvi, Finland appeared in four games with the Islanders during the 2003-04 season, going scoreless with two penalty minutes. He spent the majority of the 2003-04 campaign with the Islanders' AHL affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.  In 71 games with the Sound Tigers, Pettinen recorded nine points (1+8) and 37 penalty minutes.

In two pro seasons in North America (2002-2004), he has appeared in six career games with the Islanders, recording no points and two penalty minutes. In 146 games with the Sound Tigers, Pettinen has collected 18 points (2+16) and 93 penalty minutes.

He was selected by the Islanders in the ninth round (267th overall) of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.
