The Isles & Nathan McIver have agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract:

The New York Islanders announced today that defenseman Nathan McIver has agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way (NHL/AHL) deal.


McIver, 27, joins the New York Islanders organization for his eighth professional season. The 6'2, 195-pound defensemen posted one goal and 68 penalty minutes in 41 games last season with the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League.


The Summerside, PEI native has also appeared in 36 NHL contests with the Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim Ducks, notching one assist and 95 penalty minutes. The Canucks selected McIver in the eighth round (254th overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft. In 345 career AHL games with the Manitoba Moose and Providence, McIver has registered 27 points (seven goals, 20 assists) and 814 penalty minutes.


Prior to his professional career, McIver played three seasons with the Toronto St. Michael's Majors of the Ontario Hockey League, as well as one season with the Summerside Western Capitals of the Maritime Junior Hockey League.

Good for both McIver and the Isles for Bridgeport.

I would give anything to see the Islanders back at the top of the league again.

With all the talk about Suter and Parise and Weber, the islanders capitalized and grabbed McIver while everyone was distracted!!

Islanders for cup!

If we don't even dump one veteran, I'll stop posting on CDC until October 7th. It's that disappointing. - Tom Sestito, June 27th.

He never did get a fair shake here. We traded Mike Brown for him when McIver was snagged off waivers, kept neither.

Garth Snow's plan, add McIver and Yashin, then cup bound. :ph34r:

Decent depth signing for the Isles. McIver is a tough SOB.

I don't know why but when I saw Nathan McIver I automatically thought Nathan Mackinnon...

He was an ok depth guy for us here when we had him, but easily replaced by Sauve and Polasek now that they've had a chance to develop some.

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.
