The New York Islanders have acquired the rights to pending unrestricted free agent defenceman Dan Boyle from the San Jose Sharks for a conditional 2015 fifth-round draft pick. If Boyle were to re-sign with the Islanders, the pick would become a fourth-round selection.

Boyle, who will turn 38 in July, has spent the last seven seasons with the Sharks.

A Stanley Cup winner with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004 and a 2010 Olympic gold medal winner with Canada, Boyle is heading into his 17th NHL season. He had 12 goals and 24 assists for the Sharks last season.

Boyle is a veteran of 954 NHL games. In his career, the native of Ottawa has tallied 144 and 417 assists.

The Islanders can begin negotiating with Boyle at any time. Teams can sign unrestricted free agents as of July 1.
