UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CP) - Rookie-of-the-year finalist Trent Hunter has re-signed with the New York Islanders.

Terms of the one-year contract were not disclosed.

Hunter 24, of Red Deer, Alta., is coming off one of the most impressive rookie seasons in club history. He tied with Mariusz Czerkawski for most goals, 25, and with Oleg Kvasha for most points, 51. He was the only rookie in the NHL to lead his team in those statistical categories.

He had a plus-23 plus-minus rating, appeared in the NHL Young Stars Game during the all-star weekend and was named to the league's all-rookie team. He salary was $495,000 US. Hunter was originally drafted by the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in the sixth round, 150th overall, of the 1998 entry draft. The Islanders acquired him in May 2000 for a fourth-round draft pick.
