Is it possible the last of the Reinhart brothers might be the first to go No. 1 at the NHL draft?

The odds are pretty good, according to preliminary reports. Sam Reinhart, a center with the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League is part of a new group of prospects from around the globe hoping to make an impact prior to the 2014 NHL Draft, which will be held June 27-28 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

As expected, the 6-foot-1, 186-pound right-shot forward has earned a spot on NHL Central Scouting's 2013-14 Futures List, which is comprised of players the League's scouting arm considers to possess first-, second- or third-round potential.

It was a banner year for top 2013 NHL Draft prospects starring overseas, with seven European skaters selected in the first round.

Heading that group was Finnish center Aleksander Barkov, who was chosen by the Florida Panthers with the No. 2 pick. The 2014 list of draft-eligible European prospects hopes to continue that success.

According to NHL Director of European Scouting Goran Stubb, the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka Tournament, scheduled for Aug. 5-10 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, will offer a better insight into the top Europeans entering the 2013-14 season.

Strome could move to wing to stick with Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- With each passing day, forward Ryan Strome knows he's inching closer to realizing his dream of playing in the NHL.

Selected in the first round (No. 5) by the New York Islanders at the 2011 NHL Draft, Strome is coming off another successful season with the Niagara Ice Dogs of the Ontario Hockey League, when he had 34 goals, 60 assists and a plus-43 rating in 53 games. He had six points (four goals, two assists) in six games for Canada at the 2013 World Junior Championship.

Strome, who turns 20 Thursday, turned pro at the end of his fourth junior season when he joined the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League in April. Though Bridgeport fell short in its bid to qualify for the Calder Cup Playoffs, Strome had seven points (two goals, five assists) in 10 games. The adjustment went as smoothly as possible.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
