The New York Islanders have signed goaltender Jaroslav Halak to a four-year deal worth $18 million, according to a tweet Thursday from Newsday's Arthur Staple. 

The 29-year-old goalie went 29-13-7 with a .921 save percentage and posted a 2.25 goals-against in his 52 games last year between his time with St. Louis and Washington. The Islanders acquired him from the Capitals for a fourth round pick on May 1 and project him to be the starter in the net next season.

The Islanders finished dead last in the Eastern Conference this past season with a 34-37 record.
