ISLANDERS SELECT STROME FIFTH OVERALL
Niagara Forward Picked Fifth In 2011 NHL Entry Draft

ST. PAUL, MN, June 24, 2011 — The New York Islanders have selected Ryan Strome with the fifth overall pick in the 2011 National Hockey League Entry Draft. Islanders General Manager Garth Snow announced the pick Friday night at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN.

Strome, a native of Mississauga, ON, finished third in Ontario Hockey League scoring with 106 points (33 goals, 73 assists) in 65 games, leading Niagara to a franchise best 45 wins and 96 points in 2010-11. The 18-year-old’s points-per-game average of 1.63 ranked first among qualifying OHL forwards this season.

“We have set out a plan to build a young core of players that will consistently compete for the Stanley Cup and Ryan is another key addition to that core,” Snow said.  “He is a highly skilled forward who’s been very impressive in first two OHL seasons. Ryan’s speed and creativity will help solidify our lineup for years to come.”

The 6’0”, 175-pound center was voted Most Improved Player and Best Playmaker in the 2011 OHL Eastern Conference Coaches Poll. Strome also tied for the Best Stickhandler with Ryan Spooner of the Kingston Frontenacs. In two OHL seasons with Niagara and Barrie, Strome has totaled 133 points (41 goals, 92 assists) in 126 games.

Strome is the sixth player in Islanders history to be selected fifth overall. Other Islanders drafted fifth overall in the NHL Entry Draft include Nino Niederreiter (2010), Raffi Torres (2000), Tim Connolly (1999), Eric Brewer (1997) and Darius Kasparaitis (1992).
