The goal keeper Ilya Sorokin has signed a contract for one season with the New York Islanders on Monday.
It is the agent of the player of 24 years, Dan Milstein, who announced the news first on his Twitter account.
Just as Alexander Romanov, the Montreal canadiens, and Kirill Kaprizov, the Wild of Minnesota, Sorokin join his team for phases 3 and 4 of the plan of return to play of the national hockey League (NHL). He will be able to practice with his new teammates, but he will not be able to compete in game during the playoffs.
The Russian will become a free agent with compensation after the playoffs. The Islanders will therefore need to offer him a new contract before the start of the next season.
The choice of the third round (78th overall) of the Islanders in 2014 have kept an average of goals granted to 1.50 this season in the kontinental hockey League (KHL) with CSKA Moscow, while maintaining an efficiency percentage of ,935, in addition to 26 victories to his record in 40 games.
