UNIONDALE, NY, July 15, 2010 – The New York Islanders announced today that they have agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way (NHL/AHL) contract with defenseman Dustin Kohn.

Kohn, 23, made his NHL debut last season with the Islanders, playing in 22 games and recording four assists. Prior to his late-January call-up, the Edmonton, ALT., native scored 17 points (2 goals, 15 assists) in 45 games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL. For his efforts, Kohn (6’2, 200 lbs.) was selected to play for the Canadian team at the 2010 AHL All-Star Classic. He also led the Sound Tigers in scoring during their First Round Calder Cup Playoff series against the Hershey Bears, with four points (2 goals, 2 assists) in five games.

“Dustin has developed steadily over the last few years and was very effective in his time with the Islanders last season,” said Islanders General Manger Garth Snow. “We look forward to having him as part of our organization next year.”

The Islanders selected Kohn in the Second Round (46th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. In three full seasons in Bridgeport, Kohn has totaled 46 points (9 goals, 37 assists) and 126 penalty minutes in 165 games. Prior to turning professional, Kohn spent four seasons in the WHL with both the Brandon Wheat Kings and the Calgary Hitmen, totaling 131 points (20 goals, 111 assists) in 253 games.
