Zdeno Chara, 44, returning to Islanders on 1-year contract

Zdeno Chara pondered his future, talked to his family and decided a blast from his past was the right choice for where to play a 24th NHL season.

Chara agreed to terms with the New York Islanders on a one-year deal Saturday, returning 25 years later to the organization that drafted him, to chase the Stanley Cup one more time at age 44.

"It's kind of full circle," Chara said. "Who would know that this would kind of work out the way it did after 20-some years?"
