Islanders sign 1st-round pick Griffin Reinhart to 3-year, entry-level contract

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

The 6-foot-4, 202-pound defenceman 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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
