The Islanders also dealt their 2021 second-round pick to the Devils as part of the Andy Greene trade last season. The Islanders acquired the 52nd-overall pick from Detroit in the Nick Leddy trade on July 16. The pick originally belonged to the Edmonton Oilers. The Islanders previously owned the Colorado Avalanche's second-round pick (60th overall), but dealt it to the Arizona Coyotes on July 17.
