ISLANDERS SIGN MARK WOTTON
Experienced dman brings leadership and skill to Bridgeport

The Islanders have signed veteran defenseman Mark Wotton to a two-year contract.

Wotton helped lead the Hershey Bears to the AHL's Calder Cup championship last season. He registered 7 goals and 19 assists for 26 points and had 58 penalty minutes in 69 regular season games with the Bears. Wotton added four assists and was a plus-3 in 14 playoff games with Hershey.

"Mark Wotton is an excellent addition to our organization," said Islanders general manager Garth Snow. "He is an ideal on-ice mentor for the young defensemen that will be in Bridgeport. Mark also has NHL experience and brings us depth on the blueline."

In 2004-05, Wotton and Snow were teammates in Russia for St. Petersburg SKA during the NHL work stoppage.

The 32-year old Wotton has played in 43 NHL games (42 with Vancouver and one with Dallas) and has 3 goals and 6 assists for 9 points in his NHL career.

Selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the 10th round of the 1992 NHL entry draft, the 5-10, 196-pound Wotton played five years of junior hockey with the WHL's Saskatoon Blades before joining the AHL's Syracuse Crunch (then Vancouver's top affiliate) in 1994-95.
