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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
