Weight gets one-year extension from Islanders
The New York Islanders have signed veteran forward Doug Weight to a one-year contract extension Tuesday.
In his first season with the Islanders, the 39-year-old Weight has recorded nine goals and 26 assists despite missing 29 games because of injury.
The contract runs through the 2009-10 season. Weight originally signed with the Islanders as an unrestricted free agent last July. In 1,180 career games, Weight has 274 goals and 730 assists.
The two-time Olympian is one of four American-born players to have recorded at least 200 goals and 700 assists in their career.
