Islanders ink Casey Cizikas to five-year deal

New York Islanders center Casey Cizikas has inked a five-year, $16.75 million extension with the team.

What It Means:

Cizikas would have been a restricted free agent this summer after completing his two-year, $2 million deal. The 25-year-old forward is getting that sizable raise after scoring eight goals and 30 points in 80 contests in 2015-16. He added another three assists in 11 playoff games.

Cizikas was poor at driving possession, posting a Corsi For Percentage of 48.4 and a Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength of -3.4, although both were improvements on his career totals.
