The New York Islanders announced today that they’ve signed Dennis Cholowski, Arnaud Durandeau, Hudson Fasching and Paul LaDue.

Cholowski is likely the most notable name of the bunch, having played 115 NHL games at just 24 years old. The defenseman was originally selected 20th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in 2016 and this past season, he played games with both the Seattle Kraken and Washington Capitals.

Durandeau is 23 years old and has spent the majority of the last three seasons with Bridgeport in the AHL. This past season, the forward scored 15 goals and 37 points in 64 AHL games.

Fasching is 27 years old and has played 38 career NHL games. This past season, the forward went pointless in 11 games with the Arizona Coyotes, while also scoring 14 goals and 37 points in 51 games with the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners.

LaDue is 29 years old and has played 70 career NHL games. The defenseman spent the season in the AHL with Bridgeport, while also suiting up with the Islanders for a single game.

Cholowski, Durandeau and Ladue each signed two-year deals at a $762,500 cap hit, while Fasching signed for a single year at $750,000.

Lou Lamoriello also noted the Islanders are not looking to bring back defensemen Zdeno Chara and Andy Greene.
