NEW YORK (WFAN) — The New York Islanders landed two free agents early in the free agent process.

General Manager Garth Snow snapped-up forward Brad Boyes and defenseman Matt Carkner.

Arthur Staple of Newsday confirmed 30-year old Boyes was given a one-year, $1 million dollar deal by the Islanders.

In 65 games with the Buffalo Sabres in 2011-12, Boyes scored 23 points.

Staple also reported the Islanders agreed a three-year contract with Carkner worth a total of $4.5 million dollars.

The 31-year old Carkner totaled 3 points in 29 games with the Ottawa Senators last season.
