For the first time since 2000, the Islanders enter the NHL Entry Draft with a top-ten pick. Although this year's draft doesn't feature a Sidney Crosby-like phenom, there are still plenty of talented players worthy of top picks. Erik Johnson of the US National team is one and Jordan Staal, brother of Carolina Hurricanes' forward Eric and New York Rangers prospect Marc, is another. Will they be available when the Islanders pick roles around? Everyone will have to wait to June 24 to find that out.
But here's your chance to make the pick, providing your selection is still on the board. Remember, only pick one "future" Islander, keep your selection to 50 words or less and send it here.
Your deadline is Monday, June 19 at 10:00 am. Thanks, and good luck!
