The Islanders signed goaltender Jakub Skarek to a two-year, two-way contract on Tuesday afternoon.
Like Oliver Wahlstrom, who signed a one-year deal on Monday, the 23-year-old had been a restricted free-agent. Unlike the forward, though, Skarek reportedly decided to accept the team’s qualifying offer.
Skarek, a third-round pick in the 2018 draft, is yet to make a regular season appearance at the NHL level. He spent last season with the Bridgeport Islanders and posted a 3.37 GGA and .892 save percentage across 38 appearances.
In 103 AHL games, Skarek has a 3.34 GAA, .893 save percentage and four shutouts. He was named the AHL Goaltender of the Month back in January 2022, after recording a 1.98 GAA and .935 save percentage.
