ISLANDERS ADD 2nd ROUND PICK IN 2008

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders
Deal Allan Rourke and 2008 third-rounder to Edmonton



The Islanders have acquired Edmonton's second round pick in the 2008 NHL draft by trading depth defenseman Allan Rourke and a 2008 third round pick to the Oilers. The Islanders now have two second round picks in what is expected to be a deep draft in June, 2008.

"Although it may seem a relatively small deal from a players' standpoint, this is very good news for us," said Islanders assistant GM/Director of Amateur Scouting Ryan Jankowski. "Next year is expected to be a stronger and deeper draft than the past few years. In this draft, you can never have enough early picks."
