INSIDE THE \'06 DRAFT
The Islanders' Picks in the Top 10


For the first time since 2000 when they selected Rick DiPietro first overall and Raffi Torres fifth, the Islanders will be drafting with a lottery pick next month. So taking a walk down memory lane, here's a look at all of the Islanders' top-ten draft selections.

1st overall: Billy Harris (1972), Denis Potvin (1973); Rick DiPietro (2000)

2nd overall: Dave Chyzowski (1989), Wade Redden (1995)

3rd overall: Pat LaFontaine (1983), J.P. Dumont (1996)

4th overall: Clark Gilles (1974), Scott Lachance (1991), Roberto Luongo (1997)

5th overall: Darius Kasparaitis (1992)Tim Connolly (1999) Raffi Torres (2000)

6th overall: Brad Dalgarno (1985), Scott Scissons (1990)

7th overall:  None

8th overall: Taylor Pyatt (1999)

9th overall: Brett Lindros (1994), Michael Rupp (1998)

10th overall: Branislav Mezei (1999)

Incredibly, in the franchise's previous 34 drafts, the Islanders have never drafted at the No. 7 position in the first round. Those are some long odds considering the team has had 20 top-ten draft picks over 16 different drafts.
