Cizikas, 30, collected 14 points (seven goals, seven assists) in 56 games last season with New York. He has 185 points (81 goals, 104 assists) in 590 career games since being picked by the Islanders in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL Draft.

“Long Island is my home and will always be my home,” Cizikas said today. “I’ll die an Islander.”

Palmieri, 30, had four points (two goals, two assists) in 17 games after joined the Islanders at the trade deadline last season. The Long Island native has 359 points (185 goals, 174 assists) in 612 career games with the Anaheim Ducks, New Jersey Devils and Islanders.

“It’s a collection of everything. It comes down to the fans, how passionate they, how excited they are to watch this team play,” Palmieri said. “Then inside the room and being around these guys every day, it’s a special group and I’m just fortunate enough to have a place here.”

Sorokin, 26, posted a 13-6-3 record with three shutouts, a 2.17 goals-against average and .918 save percentage in 22 appearances (21 starts) during his rookie season in 2020-21.

The Islanders are currently over the cap but will have some wiggle room once they place Johnny Boychuk on LTIR.
