He returned to practice with the team on Saturday. He had been on the Commissioner’s restricted list for the first four practices days by the Islanders.

The 23-year-old Barzal will reportedly make $21 million over the deal.

He is slated to make $4 million this season. That includes a $1 million signing bonus.

In addition, he will make $7 million for the 2021-22 season. The final season of his contract will see him make $11 million in 2022-23.

He made his NHL debut during the 2016-17 season. However, he played in just two games that season.

Barzal would return for the 2017-18, where he played the full season. He played in 82.

As a rookie, he scored 85 points. He also had a career-high 22 points with 63 points.

The next two seasons, he has had 62 points and 60 points. The 60 points were enough to lead the Islanders last season before the Coronavirus hit in March.

Then, in the playoffs, he had 17 goals in 22 playoff games. He helped the Islanders to the Eastern Conference Finals, before losing.
