Kevin Poulin is back with the Islanders.

The Isles brought back the backup goaltender on a one-year, two-way deal, the team announced Tuesday.

The 25-year-old Poulin was a fifth-round pick of the Isles in 2008 and has played in 50 career NHL games. He has an 18-25-3 record with a 3.07 goals-against average and an .899 save percentage. Poulin also stopped 14 of 15 shots for a 1.15 GAA and .933 save percentage in two relief appearances during the 2013 Stanley Cup Quarterfinals against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Poulin posted a 2.87 GAA with a .912 save percentage in 45 games last season with the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers. He had an eight-game unbeaten streak (7-0-1) from October 17 through November 14. He also started for the Isles in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Dec. 27.

Poulin has appeared in 156 career AHL games, all with the Sound Tigers, since making his professional debut in 2010-11. He has a 69-70-7-9 record with eight shutouts.
