The New York Islanders have accepted an arbitration award and have signed centre Mike York to a one-year contract. An arbitrator awarded York $2.85 million for the 2006-07 season on Saturday. The team had 48 hours to accept or decline the deal. If the Islanders walked away, York would have become an unrestricted free agent. "We respect the arbitrator's decision and appreciate the process that led to the one-year award for Mike, a player we think the world of," Islanders general manager Garth Snow said in a statement. "It was our intention prior to the hearing to sign him to a long-term deal, and it remains our hope to have Mike York in an Islanders uniform for years to come."
