from the New York Islanders.

The New York Islanders have acquired forward Matt Martin from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for goaltender Eamon McAdam.

Martin, 29, spent the last two seasons with the Maple Leafs, accumulating 21 points (eight goals and 13 assists) and 183 penalty minutes in 132 games. He was also chosen as Toronto's nominee for the King Clancy Award, given to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community. The Windsor, ON, native began his career with the Islanders, playing seven seasons with the team that selected him in the fifth round (148th overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft.
