Transactions

Before the 2009–10 season got underway, the Islanders were involved in many transactions, and signed and lost some free agents. Their first trade for the season was made at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, where the New York Islanders sent four draft picks to the Columbus Blue Jackets, in exchange for two draft picks (including a first round pick that allowed them move up ten spots from a previously acquired pick). The team would make another trade with the Blue Jackets later on in the draft. The Islanders also made a trade with the Minnesota Wild, which allowed them to move up four additional spots [to pick #12] from the position they were in after their original trade with Columbus. They wound up using the pick to draft Calvin de Haan from the Ontario Hockey League. In the third round, the Islanders traded a third round pick in the 2010 draft for pick #62 in the current draft. On June 30, 2009, the Islanders traded Ben Walter and a conditional pick in the 2010 draft to the New Jersey Devils for Tony Romano.

The Islanders signed many free agents as well, including veteran goalie Dwayne Roloson on July 1. The following day, the Islanders signed three other players, those being Scott Munroe, Brett Westgarth, and Jeremy Reich. On July 6, the Islanders acquired four minor-league players, and lost two of their own (Chris Lee and Peter Mannino). Yann Danis and Joe Callahan both left the Islanders as well on July 10 and 16, respectively. The Islanders' most recently acquired is goaltender, Martin Biron, who played last season for the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Islanders also signed their #1 draft pick from 2009, John Tavares to a three–year entry–level contract on July 15, and resigned Nate Thompson to a one–year two–way contract on July 25.

Draft picks

The Islanders held the 1st pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, to be held in Montrealmarker. On April 14, 2009, it was announced that the Islanders had won the 2009 NHL Draft Lottery and earned the 1st draft pick for the fourth time in the franchise's history. Going into the lottery, the Islanders held a 48.2% chance of winning the lottery, due to their coming in last place in the 2008–09 NHL season. In addition to the first pick, the Islanders hold the 26th draft pick during the first round, acquiring it from the San Jose Sharks, and three second–round draft picks. Matt Duchene, Victor Hedman, Evander Kane, Brayden Schenn, and John Tavares are the favorites to be drafted by the first five teams. Garth Snow mentioned in an article on the New York Islanders' official website, that the Islanders' management have scouted each of these players for years. Since the announcement about the Islanders picking first in the draft, their ticket sales department has seen a 300-percent increase in phone calls and email inquiries over last year at this time.

During the draft, the Islanders selected center John Tavares as their first pick and also the first pick overall in the draft. After selecting Tavares, the Islanders made a trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets that sent the Islanders' picks 26, 37, 62, and 92 (in 2009) to the Blue Jackets in exchange for picks 16 and 77 (in 2009). With this trade, the Islanders had moved up from pick 26, to pick 16 in the first round of the 2009 draft. Following this, the Islanders made another trade, this time with the Minnesota Wild. The Islanders gave Minnesota picks 16, 77, and 182 (in 2009) in exchange for pick 12 from Minnesota (in 2009). At this point, the Islanders had moved up from pick 26, to pick 12. With the 12th pick, the Islanders selected Calvin de Haan, a defenceman from the Ontario Hockey League.
