New York Islanders defenceman Mark Streit is unlikely to agree to extension with the club.

The Islanders may decide to keep him for playoff race, but unless there's change, Streit will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end.

With the Streit negotiation stalled, teams are likely to make a play for trade. While the Islanders don't want  to trade Streit, that sentiment could change.

In 36 games with the Isles this season, Streit has scored five  goals and 13 assists.

The 35-year-old Swiss defender is in the final year of a five-year deal he signed prior to the 2008-09 season. The contract carries a salary cap hit of $4.1 million.

A veteran of seven NHL seasons, Streit has scored 64 goals and 215 assists in 479 career games with the Islanders and Montreal Canadiens. He was originally drafted by Montreal in the ninth round (262nd overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Streit boasts a wealth of international experience, having appeared in 12 IIHF World Championships for Switzerland as well as two Olympic games and two World Junior Championships. He became the first Swiss player in NHL history to be named a team captain when the Isles gave him the ‘C' in 2011.
