Seeking a larger raise than the five percent minimum required in qualifying offers, Islanders forward Matt Martin and defenseman Ty Wishart did not accept their offers and remain restricted free agents, the team announced Monday.

Martin, 23, earned $615,000 in salary last season, plus bonuses, for a cap hit of $852,500. He appeared in 80 games, with seven goals and seven assists and accrued 120 penalty minutes.

Wishart, 24, played 71 games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, posting five goals and 19 points. His two-way contract paid him $67,500 in the AHL and $803,250 in the NHL. The offers were made on June 25.
