Nielsen, Isles to talk contract

The New York Islaners are expected to begin contract negotiations with center Frans Nielsen in the near future.

According to New York Newsday, Islanders GM Garth Snow and Nielsen's agent "would be speaking soon" about a contract extension.

Nielsen, 32, is set to become an unrestricted free agent July 1 and is due for a significant raise from the $3.5 million in salary he earned this season.

Newsday suggests the Islanders could give Nielsen a longer termed contract if the average annual value of Nielsen's salary is "manageable."

In 81 games with the Islanders this season, Nielsen registered 20 goals and 32 assists for 52 points, the second-highest point total of his career, to date.

The Dane could see his salary climb well over $4 million, annually, on a new contract.
