The New York Islanders have selected LW Michael Dal Colle with the 5th overall selection in the 2014 NHL entry draft. 

“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.”

NYIFC Comments:
I wrote the entry at around 2:30pm.  Exactly what's needed over a two year rental for a pending UFA. Bridgeport very weak in prospects, and this is a solid offensive talent.
