The New York Islanders have agreed to terms with Casey Cizikas on a five-year, $16.75 million contract.
Cizikas, 25, registered eight goals and 21 assists for 29 points in 80 games with the Islanders this season.
"Casey has developed into a highly dependable two-way center and we're pleased to sign him through 2021," Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said. "His energy and passion both on the ice and in the community, make him an invaluable piece of our lineup."
In 290 career NHL games, Cizikas has picked up 29 goals and 53 assists for 82 points.
The Toronto native was selected by the Islanders in the fourth round (92nd overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
"I'm thrilled to remain a New York Islander for the next five years," Cizikas said. "The organization has been first class ever since I was drafted and we’ve come so far as a team during my time here. I’m excited to continue to be a part of this group as we build towards the ultimate goal, the Stanley Cup."
