The Islanders have signed forward Jonathan Sim to a three-year contract. The 30-year old Sim played last season in Atlanta, where he had 17 goals and 12 assists for 29 points in 77 games.

"Jon Sim is an aggressive, hard-working veteran forward with good offensive skills who fits in perfectly with Ted Nolan's system," said Islanders general manager Garth Snow. "We're extremely pleased Jon chose to become an Islander."

In 307 career NHL games over parts of 8 NHL seasons, the 5-10, 190-pound Sim has scored 52 goals with 45 assists for 97 points.

"I really like Jonathan's game and I believe he's an excellent addition for us," said Islanders head coach Ted Nolan. "He's a tenacious player who doesn't take off a shift. He's exactly the kind of player we want for the Islanders."

After sharing the news about Sim, Snow reiterated what he said just two hours ago to newyorkislanders.com – that he could not rule out another deal happening this evening.
