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.
