According to a report from ESPN New York, Nino Niederreiter of the New York Islanders has requested a trade.

The fifth pick of the 2010 NHL Draft reportedly is unhappy with his current situation and feels he would be better served playing somewhere else.

"Any conversations I have regarding players, that remains confidential," Islanders general manager Garth Snow said.

The 20-year-old had one goal in 55 NHL games last season. In 39 games with Bridgeport of the American Hockey League this season, Niederreiter has 19 goals and 17 assists.
