UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) The New York Islanders have agreed to terms with defensemen Mark Eaton and Milan Jurcina.

Eaton agreed to a two-year contract Friday after spending the past four seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Jurcina receives a one-year deal after completing his fourth season with the Washington Capitals.

Eaton had three goals and 13 assists in 79 games for the Penguins last season. The 33-year-old defenseman was a member of the 2009 Stanley Cup champion Penguins.

The 23-year-old Jurcina started last season with the Capitals, was dealt to Columbus and then reacquired by Washington at the trade deadline. He had six goals and 30 assists in 211 games with the Capitals.
