Jordan Eberle Re-signs with New York Islanders for Five Years

In irrefutable proof that no one ever really has an idea what Lou Lamoriello is up to until he damn well wants you to know, the New York Islanders have reached a contract extension with unrestricted free agent-to-be Jordan Eberle.

It’s a five-year contract that several including Pierre LeBrun are reporting has an average annual value (AAV) of $5.5 million per season.

That actually represents a drop in annual rate, as Eberle is coming off a $6 million AAV deal signed with the Edmonton Oilers. But it’s a realistic move, since Eberle turned 29 last month and this contract will take him to his mid-30s.
