Jurcina Agrees to Terms on One-Year Extension
The New York Islanders announced today that defenseman Milan Jurcina has agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension.

Jurcina, 27, has four points (two goals, two assists) in 19 games with the Islanders this season, while leading the team with a +1 rating.  This season, the Islanders are 11-5-3 with Jurcina in the lineup.

“Milan has brought solid defensive play and size to our defense this season,” Islanders General Manager, Garth Snow said.  “We’re excited to have him return to our lineup next year to help solidify our defense unit.”

Originally selected by the Boston Bruins in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Jurcina has totaled 57 points (17 goals, 40 assists) in 338 NHL games over seven seasons with Boston, the Washington Capitals, the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Islanders. The 6’4”, 240-pound defenseman signed with the Islanders as an unrestricted free agent on Jul 2, 2010.

“The Islanders have treated me extremely well ever since I joined the organization and I’m happy to be signed on for next season,” Jurcina said.  “We have a young team that has a bright future and I’m excited to be a part of that.”

A native of Liptovsky Mikulas, Slovakia, Jurcina represented Slovakia at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.
