FINAL SELECTIONS
MacDonald, Day, Ridderwall and Mattila chosen in the final rounds

The Islanders finished off a busy Draft Day selecting defenseman Andrew MacDonald, right winger Brian Day, goaltender Stefan Ridderwall and left winger Troy Mattila.

 

Andrew MacDonald 6th round, 160th overall
Born: September 7, 1986 Judique, Nova Scotia
Defenseman Shoots: Left
Height: 6-0 Weight: 186
Central Scouting Rank: N/A

Andrew McaDonald has a special connection to one of the newest Islander acquisitions, Ted Nolan. MacDonald played under Nolan in Moncton of the QMJHL.

"Andy is a highly intelligent player," said Nolan. "I'm really glad we got him. He's vastly underrated and has come a long way.

 

Brian Day 6th round, 171st overall
Born: August 4, 1988 Boston, Ma
Right Winger Shoots: Right
Height: 6-0 Weight: 186
Central Scouting Rank: N/A

Brian Day played for prep school Governor Dummer last season and will play there for one more season before attending Colgate.

"We're happy to have grabbed Day so late," said Isles scout Jim Madigan. "He's a power-forward that drives to the net hard. He's an honest hard-worker who is strong in his own zone."

 

Stefan Ridderwall 6th round, 173 overall
Born: March 5, 1988 Stockholm, Sweden
Goaltender Glove: Left
Height: 6-1 Weight: 189

Stefan Ridderwall comes from a strong line of Swedish netminders. His father was a goaltender on the Swedish National team.

"Stefan has a great love for the game," said head European scout Ryan Jankowski. "He has good technique. We expect much improvement out of Stefan because he will play a lot of games the next couple of seasons in Sweden. He has a great deal of raw skill and potential."

Ridderwall plays for Djurgarden of the Junior Swedish Elite League.


 

Troy Mattila 7th round, 190th overall
Born: January 12, 1988 Rockford, Ill
Left Winger Shoots: Left
Height: 6-2 Weight: 176
Central Scouting Rank: N/A


Troy Mattila put up impressive numbers scoring 240 points last season while playing midget and high school hockey. This year he made the jump to junior hockey skating for the Springfield Blues of the NAHL.

"Troy is a very talented player," said Islanders scout Jay Heinbuck. "He has very good puck and stick skills. Troy has a good scoring touch and excellent hockey instincts. We're glad to get Troy with our final pick."
