Restricted free agent Mathew Barzal arrived at New York Islanders training camp on Monday, though he cannot participate in any team scrimmages until he signs a new contract.
The 23-year-old centre had 19 goals and 60 points in 68 games with the Islanders last season, adding five goals and 17 points in 22 games during the NHL's Return to Play.
Selected 16th overall in the 2015 NHL Draft, Barzal's entry-level contract expired in October. He has 59 goals and 207 points in 234 career games with the Islanders.
The Islanders currently have $3.9 million in cap space, per CapFriendly, but can free additional $6 million by placing defenceman Johnny Boychuk on long-term injured reserve. In addition to Barzal, restricted free agent Dmytro Timashov also remains unsigned by the Islanders. Timashov also reported to training camp Monday.
