After not receiving a qualifying offer from the Sabres and entering free agency, Robin Lehner had to sit a wait following the first few days of free agency to find a new crease to patrol.
On Tuesday, the netminder and the New York Islanders agreed to a one year contract.
The 26-year-old, who was critical at times of the Sabres poor player in front him, compiled a 42-61-22 record while with the Blue & Gold, which included a 14-26-9 record this past season.
Lehner will likely compete with Thomas Greiss for the starting role.
The Islanders finished the year with a 35-37-10 record and has star center John Tavares sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
