New York has selected Ryan Strome with the fifth overall selection in the 2011 NHL draft. Islanders website: has the release with comments from, General Manager, Garth Snow.
NHL.com: Has Islanders video at podium making the selection.
Impression is this is not a vote of confidence for Josh Bailey or Frans Nielsen long-term. Strome is a center, Cizikas, Ullstrom, Brock Nelson also centers, but the speed and scoring speak for themselves. Even I knew no way Larsson falls past Devils, the lottery drop was difference.
Okposo made pick, Weight, Weight, Snow on stage.
Islanders website has a Live Draft Board: to follow the NHL draft with all thirty teams.
