Czarnik, 29, returns to the Islanders for a second stint after he was originally claimed on waivers by Seattle on Feb. 8 from New York.
The Detroit, Mich., native has two goals and seven points in 17 games this season split between the Kraken and Islanders.
Signed as an undrafted free agent by the Boston Bruins in 2015, Czarnik has 15 goals and 45 points in 142 career NHL games split between the Bruins, Calgary Flames, Islanders, and Kraken.
