THE CAPTAIN RETURNS
The New York Islanders have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with team captain Doug Weight.

A veteran of 19 NHL seasons and 1,220 career games, Weight returns for his third year with the Islanders. In 36 games last season, the Detroit, Michigan native scored seventeen points (1 goal and 16 assists).

“Doug has played an important role in helping to develop our young players over the past two seasons and we’re excited to see him continue his historic career on Long Island,” Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said.

Weight, a four-time NHL All-Star, was named the 12th Captain in Islanders history on October 2, 2009. Originally drafted by the New York Rangers in the second round (34th overall) of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft, Weight has totaled 276 goals and 748 assists for 1,024 points in 1,220 NHL games with the Rangers, Edmonton Oilers, St. Louis Blues, Carolina Hurricanes, Anaheim Ducks and the Islanders. In 2006, Weight helped the Hurricanes capture their first Stanley Cup Championship in team history and the only of Weight’s career. Weight reached the 1,000 point milestone with the Islanders on January 2, 2009, becoming the eighth American-born player and 73rd NHL player to reach 1,000 points.

On the international stage, Weight captured a silver medal with Team USA at the 2002 Winter Olympics and skated with the 1998 United States Olympic Team.  He has also played in two World Cup of Hockey Tournaments in 1996 and 2004, winning the tournament in 1996 in a dramatic victory over Team Canada.
