After four memorable seasons in Edmonton, goaltender Dwayne Roloson has a new home.

The 39-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the New York Islanders for $5-million.

Roloson, who wasn't the starter in Edmonton at the beginning of the 2008-2009 season, but took control of the starting job and appeared in 63 games for the Oilers, posting a 28-24-9 record with a 2.77 goals-against average and one shutout.

Roloson, who the Oilers acquired at the trade deadline in 2006, made an immediate impact when he arrived, leading the club all the way to Stanley Cup final, which they lost in Game 7 to the Carolina Hurricanes.

After that Cup run, the team locked him up to a three-year deal that recently expired.

In 462 NHL games with the Calgary Flames, Buffalo Sabres, Minnesota Wild and the Oilers, Roloson has a 167 wins in 462 games. He has recorded 23 shutouts in his career.

More details to follow.
