Isles Re-sign Mad Mike
PLAINVIEW, N.Y. (AP) — The New York Islanders extended general manager Mike Milbury’s contract Monday, signing him to a multiyear deal.
Milbury, who was entering the final season of his contract, made several deals last season that helped the Islanders make the playoffs for the first time in eight seasons. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
In his six years with the Islanders, Milbury survived numerous failed ownerships and terrible teams that tarnished the image of a proud franchise that won four straight Stanley Cups from 1980-83.
“The chance to resurrect my career has been very special,” Milbury said in a statement. “I am forever indebted to Charles and Sanjay. I know that 99.9 percent of the people who might have purchased this franchise would have given me my walking papers.”
The Islanders, who finished with the league’s worst record at 21-51-7-3 two years ago, were 42-28-8-4 last season — a 44-point increase. [AP]
