Islanders Bring Back Parenteau On One-Year Deal

The Isles continued to add players after the departure of three of their mainstays yesterday by signing PA Parenteau to a one year deal.

The 33 year-old, retures to the Islanders after playing for Colorado, Montreal and Toronto scored 41 points (20 goals, 21 assists) in 77 games last season with the Maple Leafs. His 20 goals matched a career high, originally set in 2010-11 during his first season with the Islanders and first full NHL campaign. The following season, Parenteau scored a career-high 67 points (18 goals, 49 assists) during his second season with the Islanders, before departing as a free agent in 2012-13.

With the additions of Andrew Ladd and Jason Chimera, it looks like the Isles have filled the holes left by Frans Neilson, Kyle Okposo, and Matt Martin.
