Thomas Greiss has found a new home.
Thomas Greiss spent five years with the New York Islanders and started in 179 regular-season games during that span. He went 101-60-17 with a .915 save percentage and a 2.70 goals-against average. Greiss also made 16 appearances in the playoffs for the Islanders and very famously helped lead them to their first playoff series win since 1993 during the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs against Florida.

Thomas Greiss went 16-9-4 this season with the Islanders. The German netminder is coming off a three-year, $10 million deal he signed in 2017.
There had been reports on Friday that the Islanders were looking at trying to trade Semyon Varlamov to free up cap space and then re-sign Greiss to pair with Ilya Sorokin. Saturday’s news means that if the Islanders go through with that idea they would need to find a new replacement for Varlamov.
