The New York Islanders have agreed to terms with goalie Martin Biron on a one-year deal.Biron was 29-19-5 for the Flyers last season, with a 2.76 goals-against average, and led Philadelphia to the Eastern Conference finals against Pittsburgh.

"Adding Marty gives us three bona fide No. 1 goalies," general manager Garth Snow said in a statement. "We learned about the importance of stability in our lineup from last year and he now allows us to have another quality starter."

The 6-foot-3 goalie has a career 2.59 GAA in 433 NHL games with Philadelphia and Buffalo.
