Lou Lamoriello appeared to work his magic once more. The New York Islanders and defenseman Ryan Pulock have agreed to an 8-year contract extension worth just under $50 million, according to Darren Dreger.

The news comes on the eve of the Islanders season opener in Carolina on Thursday. Pulock is on the final year of a 2-year deal he signed in November of 2020 and would have been an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason.

The extension comes with a no-trade clause during the first five years, before becoming a limited no-trade clause the final three years, according to Dreger.

Ryan Pulock has been part of New York’s top defensive pair over the past few seasons along with Adame Pelech, who signed an 8-year contract extension of his own in August. Pulock had 17 points (two goals, 15 assists) in 56 regular-season games last year.

He also had one of the most iconic saves in the Islanders playoff run as well. Ryan Pulock made a game-saving stop in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Semifinals to keep Tampa Bay from forcing overtime.

It’s the second time this year that Lamoriello has been able to lock up one of his key defensive pieces at a reasonable rate. Pelech’s 8-year deal, worth $5.75 million, was also viewed as a steal for the hall-of-fame hockey excutive.
