Isles re-sign Jordan Eberle to a five-year deal

The team announced on Friday the impending unrestricted free agent agreed to a five-year deal.

Eberle, 29, is coming off a six-year, $36-million deal he signed with the Oilers, who selected him 22nd overall in 2008.

Eberle had 19 goals and 18 assists in 78 games in his second season with the Islanders after being acquired for Ryan Strome on June 22, 2017.

Overall, Eberle has 209 goals and 269 assists in 666 career NHL regular-season games.

Captain Anders Lee, goalie Robin Lehner, a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, and third-line center Valtteri Filppula all can become UFAs on July 1.

He began reporting on the NHL in 2003 and has previously covered the Rangers and Devils.
