“Drafting a player of Michael’s caliber is another building block in what is an important offseason for the organization,” Snow said. “We’re excited to see him develop into another key piece of our core. Michael has top-end offensive skill, paired with two-way instincts and hockey sense, which are assets we are thrilled to add to the Islanders.”
