Strait Agrees To Three-Year Deal
Islanders Sign Defenseman Through 2016

The New York Islanders announced today that defenseman Brian Strait has agreed to terms on a three-year contract.

Strait, 25, has played in all six Islanders games this season since he was claimed off waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins on January 18, 2013. Prior to joining the Islanders, Strait had appeared in 12 NHL games with the Penguins, collecting one assist and four penalty minutes. The Penguins selected the 6’1, 200-pound defenseman in the third round (65th overall) of the 2006 NHL Draft.

In 220 career American Hockey League games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the Boston, MA, native has 40 points (eight goals, 32 assists) with a plus-46 rating.

Strait played three years of college hockey at Boston University, highlighted by a NCAA National Championship in 2009, his final season with the team. He also spent two seasons with the United States National Development Team in 2004-05 and 2005-06.

On the international stage, Strait played for the U.S. National Team at the 2008 World Junior Championships and the 2006 Under-18 World Championships, winning gold as team captain in 2006.
