The Islanders have re-signed goalie Evgeni Nabokov, according to Arthur Staple of Newsday.

Staple reports the one-year deal is worth $3.25 million.

Nabokov was the Islanders' No. 1 goaltender in each of the past two seasons. He had a .910 save percentage and posted three shutouts last season.

His return was not set in stone after a poor playoff series against the Penguins in which he surrendered a lead in three losses. The Islanders reportedly were interested in free agent goalie Ray Emery.

The Islanders recently bought out the contract of goalie Rick DiPietro and could be shopping for another goalie if Nabokov does not bounce back in 2013-14.
