The Islanders have had a lively start to free agency.
After losing goalie Robin Lehner to the Chicago Blackhawks on a one-year, $5 million deal, New York announced their agreement with goalie Semyon Varlamov on a four-year, $20 million contract Monday night.
Varlamov played the last eight years in Colorado, earning a record of 183-156-38. This past season, the 11-year veteran finished 20-19-9 with a goals-against average of 2.87 and a .909 save percentage in 49 games.
The 27-year-old started all eight of New York's playoff games over Thomas Greiss and finished with a 2.00 GAA and .936 SV%.
