Matt Moulson has avoided salary arbitration with the New York Islanders, as the club signed the restricted free agent forward to a one-year, $2.45 million contract on Tuesday.

Moulson, 26, scored 30 goals and 48 points in 82 games with the Islanders last season, his first full NHL campaign.

A former draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Moulson joined the Los Angeles Kings as a free agent in 2006 and spent most of his pro career with the Manchester Monarchs of the Amercian Hockey League.
