The 2008 draft pool is considered the deepest in years and the Islanders are set to select higher in this year’s Entry Draft than they have in the past seven. With the Islanders selecting fifth in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft on Friday, June 20 in Ottawa, many highly-touted prospects will be available for the Isles to choose from. Each week leading up to the draft, Newyorkislanders.com will feature a new player who is likely to go early in this year’s draft.

What They’re Saying:

"He’s a game breaker. He’s made a difference everywhere he’s played, and those types of players are hard to get."
-    Stan Butler / Brampton Battalion Head Coach/GM

"When Brampton Battalion forward Cody Hodgson is on the ice, his opponents look like pawns ripe for the taking."
-    Sunaya Sapurji / Toronto Sun

"Those who like him would project him as a Chris Drury type, a solid second-liner who can play against other teams' top line and offer clutch scoring and character."
-    Gare Joyce / ESPN.com

"He had a lot to do with our success. I’ve had a lot of guys older than him who don’t conduct themselves like he does."
-    Pat Quinn / Team Canada U-18 Head Coach/Former Maple Leafs Head Coach
