ISLANDERS AGREE TO TERMS WITH PARENTEAU AND KONOPKA
The New York Islanders announced today that they have agreed to terms on one-year contracts with P.A. Parenteau and Zenon Konopka. 

Parenteau played within the New York Rangers organization for the past three seasons.  Last year was his first with the Rangers, playing in 22 games and scoring three goals and five assists for eight points.  The two seasons prior, Parenteau played for the Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack where he averaged over a point per game.  In two seasons with the Wolf Pack, the Hull, QC native tallied 63 goals and 96 assists for 159 points in 149 games played. 

Konopka, a native of Niagara On the Lake, ON was a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning the past two seasons.  He led the league in penalty minutes last season with 265.  Konopka played in 74 games and tallied two goals and three assists while compiling 265 penalty minutes to lead the National Hockey League.  An undrafted free agent, Konopka began his pro career with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 2005-06, dressing in 23 games and scoring seven points (four goals and three assists).  He also played a total of nine games with the Columbus Blue Jackets and accumulated 35 penalty minutes. 

A 29-year-old center, Konopka has seen stints in Cincinnati (AHL), Portland (AHL), Syracuse (AHL) and Norfolk (AHL). 

“To add both Pierre and Zenon puts a tremendous amount of skill and grit into our lineup,” Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said.  “Pierre has been one of the top scorers in the AHL the past two seasons and showed he can play in the NHL in his time with the Rangers this season.  Konopka is a high character guy that will do anything to help our team win and adds an intimidating factor into our lineup.”
