TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher says the Lightning have obtained 41-year-old goalie Dwayne Roloson from the New York Islanders for minor league defenseman Ty Wishart.

Boucher made the announcement after Tampa Bay beat the New York Rangers 2-1 in overtime on Saturday night.

Roloson is 6-13-1 this season with a 2.64 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in 20 games. He is in the final year of a two-year contract. In 532 NHL games, Roloson is 196-229-42-33 with a 2.66 GAA.

The 22-year-old Wishart has four goals and 14 assists in 31 games this season with Norfolk Admirals of the AHL. He was chosen by San Jose with the 16th pick in the 2006 draft.

Wishart played five NHL games with the Lightning during the 2008-09 season.
