YARMOUTH, Nova Scotia -- Right wing Mark Parrish signed his one-year qualifying offer worth $1.9 million with the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

Parrish was the last remaining player not yet under contract before the team departed for training camp, which started on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old Parrish has 94 goals and 79 assists in his four seasons with the Islanders. He is expected to be a member of the United States team that will compete in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Italy.

The Islanders acquired Parrish and Oleg Kvasha in the trade that sent Roberto Luongo and Olli Jokinen to Florida in June 2000.

Parrish scored on a career-high 22.9 percent of his shots in 2003-04, recording 24 goals in 59 games while fighting through an ankle injury. He posted a plus-eight rating in helping New York to the playoffs for the third straight season.

In 2001-2002, Parrish recorded 30 goals and 30 assists in 78 games and had a career-best plus-10 rating, earning a spot in the NHL All-Star Game.
