The New York Islanders are willing to give veteran defenseman Matt Carkner another chance.
Carkner, who is an unrestricted free agent, joined forward Tyler Barnes and goaltender Parker Milner in signing professional tryout contracts with the team on Monday.
Carkner played two seasons with the Islanders, recording five assists and 195 penalty minutes in 75 games from 2012-14. The 34-year-old Ontario native scored two goals and set up another in 19 contests last season while serving as an alternate captain for Bridgeport of the American Hockey League.
