Lou Lamoriello started off free agency by signing Jordan Eberle to a five-year deal worth $5.5 million annually. Once he adapted his own style to the one Barry Trotz demanded from his players, Eberle found his footing - coincidentally, that was around the time in March that he was reunited with Mathew Barzal.

The 29-year-old scored 19 goals and recorded 37 points in 78 games this season, adding four goals and nine points in eight games in the playoffs.

The 29-year-old forward has spent the past two seasons with NY after being acquired in a trade with the Edmonton Oilers for forward Ryan Strome on June 22, 2017.

He is coming off of a six-year, $36 million contract signed with the Oilers in 2012. He added four goals and five assists in the postseason as NY reached the conference semifinals.

He has 209 goals and 269 assists for 478 points over 666 career games after the Oilers selected him 22nd overall in the 2008 draft.

Another potential Islanders free agent is back in the fold.
