Islanders sign 1st-round pick Griffin Reinhart

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Islanders signed first-round pick Griffin Reinhart to a three-year, entry-level contract Thursday.

The 6-foot-4, 202-pound defenseman was selected fourth overall in the June draft. He had 12 goals and 24 assists in 58 games last season for the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Western Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
