ISLES ENTER 06 DRAFT WITH 9 PICKS
Scouting Staff has 3 third round picks

by Corey Witt

The Islanders will head into the 2006 NHL Entry Draft with nine picks, including five in the first three rounds. This is the highest picks-per-round ratio (nine picks in seven rounds) the team has had since the 1999 draft (14 picks in nine rounds).
 
The draft has also been very influential in building organizational depth as the team has signed at least three players from each year that they have had a first round selection in since 1999.

Here's how the Islanders' current draft board breaks down:

1st Round - Islanders 1st

2nd Round - Dallas 2nd

3rd Round - Islanders 3rd
                       New Jersey 3rd
                       Phoenix 3rd
   
4th Round - Islanders 4th
                       Edmonton 4th*
   
6th Round - Islanders 6th

7th Round - Islanders 7th

The Islanders acquired the extra picks through a couple of trades. Dallas' second round pick is from the John Erskine/Janne Niinimaa trade, while the two third round selections were acquired from New Jersey and Phoenix for Brad Lukowich and Oleg Kvasha, respectively.

The only wide-open scenario surrounds the fourth round selection from Edmonton. The Islanders received the Oilers' fourth round pick from the Mike York/Michael Peca trade. That can turn into a third round selection instead of a fourth round selection if Peca re-signs with Edmonton before the draft.

However, if Peca re-signs after the draft, the Islanders will then receive Edmonton's third round selection in 2007, but in return give them their 2007 fourth round selection in compensation for the original fourth round selection Edmonton gave the Islanders.
