Islanders, winger Jordan Eberle agree to $27.5M, 5-year deal

Jordan Eberle calling free agency a "last resort" must be music to the ears of the New York Islanders and their fans after what happened a year ago.

Eberle on Friday agreed to terms on a $27.5 million, five-year contract that counts $5.5 million against the salary cap. Unlike former captain John Tavares, who left for Toronto last summer in free agency, Eberle decided to commit long term to the Islanders much like teammate Brock Nelson did recently.

"I like the direction the Islanders are going," Eberle said. "From day one, my mindset was to try and get a deal done."
