NEW YORK – The New York Islanders announced Wednesday that defenseman Bode Wilde has agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level deal.

Wilde, 18, has 20 points (5G, 15A) in 19 games during his first season with the Saginaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League. His 19 points are good for most among team defensemen and ninth among all OHL blueliners while his 15 assists co-leads the Spirit.

The Montreal, QC native played two seasons with the United States National Team Development Program prior to playing in the OHL. He recorded 60 points (20G, 40A) in 118 games with the program.
