The New York Islanders are banking on a return to the promising form demonstrated by Cory Conacher during his rookie season, as the team has inked the diminutive forward to a one-year contract.

Conacher, 24, recorded nine goals and 15 assists in 35 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning prior to being traded to the Ottawa Senators; after being flipped to the Sabres prior to the 2014 trade deadline, Conacher mustered three goals and three assists in 19 games, and was non-tendered by Buffalo at season's end, making him an unrestricted free agent.
