\'TANK\' IS AN ISLANDER
2004 Stanley Cup hero RUSLAN FEDOTENKO signs one-year deal with the Islanders

The Islanders have signed veteran left wing Ruslan Fedotenko to a one-year contract. The 28-year old Fedotenko played a major role in Tampa Bay's Stanley Cup championship in 2004, scoring 12 goals in 22 playoff games, including both goals in the Lightning's 2-1 win over Calgary in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.

"Ruslan brings so much to our team with his speed, versatility, work ethic and ability to score big goals," said Islanders general manager Garth Snow. "He was one of Tampa Bay's most valuable players when they won the Cup and at only 28 he's just entering the prime of his career. I strongly believe Ted Nolan is going to get the most out of him."

Fedotenko's best regular season came after the Lightning's Cup run when he scored 26 goals in 2005-06. In 465 NHL games with Philadelphia and Tampa Bay, the Kiev, Ukraine native has 107 goals and 99 assists for 206 points.

"I'm very happy to be an Islander," said Fedotenko, who tied Conn Smythe Trophy winner Brad Richards with 12 goals in the 2004 playoffs. "Last season was a disappointment for me and I'm determined to show the Islanders and our fans what I can do. We have a very good team of talented young players and experienced guys and I really like Ted Nolan's style of play. I looked at a lot of offers, but I know I've come to the right team."
