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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
