A GOOD MOVE FOR O\'MARRA
Islanders 2005 first-round pick joins first-place Saginaw

Ryan O'Marra, the Islanders' 2005 first-round draft pick, was traded Wednesday from the Ontario Hockey League's (OHL) Erie Otters to the OHL's Saginaw Spirit.

The 19-year-old center moves from a last place Erie team to a Saginaw teamed primed to make a run at a championship. Saginaw is currently in first place in the West Division with a record of 17-6-0-1. This is O'Marra's last year of eligibility in the OHL and he will make the jump to pro hockey next season.

"(Erie) is a great place to play. It's a great group of kids, a great foundation for the future," said O'Marra. "Hopefully I've rubbed off on them for the future. I wish that Erie could be in the situation that Saginaw is in now. I look forward to making a run at the Memorial Cup with Saginaw."

Through 13 games this season, O'Marra tallied eight goals and six assists. Last season, O'Marra played in eight regular-season games with the Islanders' AHL affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers, compiling four goals and one assist. In three playoff games, he picked up one assist. Last year with Erie, O'Marra was second on the team in points with 77.

O'Marra was recently selected to participate in the 2006 ADT Canada Russia Challenge. The tournament pits the best Canadian juniors against the Russian National Junior team. Games will be held on Nov. 23 and Nov. 27
