TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired goaltender Dwayne
Roloson from the New York Islanders in exchange for defenseman Ty Wishart
tonight, Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced.

“In this trade we give up a promising, former first-round pick. We wish
him luck in the Islanders organization,” Yzerman said. “In Roloson we
have acquired a proven, veteran goaltender who will provide stability in
net.”

Roloson, 6-foot-1, 170 pounds, has played in 20 games with the Islanders
this season, posting a 6-13-1 record, a .916 save percentage and a 2.64

well as games played.

A native of Simcoe, Ontario, Roloson has played in 532 career NHL games,
posting a career 2.66 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage.
He was named to the 2004 NHL All-Star Game. Roloson has played in 33
career Stanley Cup Playoff games, posting an 18-12 record with a .915 save
percentage and a 2.56 goals-against average.
