Islanders agree to terms with Strome
The New York Islanders announced today that Ryan Strome has agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Islanders selected Strome in the first round, fifth overall, of the 2011 National Hockey League Entry Draft. The Mississauga, ON, native finished third in Ontario Hockey League scoring last season with 106 points (33g/73a) in 65 games, helping lead Niagara to a franchise-best 45 wins and 96 points.

“Ryan is a dynamic playmaker who will bring tremendous skill to our young core for years to come,” said Islanders General Manager Garth Snow. “He played extremely well in the preseason and throughout Training Camp and we’re happy that he has made this three-year commitment to the organization.”

Last season, Strome was voted the Most Improved Player and Best Playmaker in the OHL Eastern Conference Coaches Poll. He added 12 points (6g/6a) in 14 playoff games with Niagara and was named to the OHL Second All-Star Team.

“The Islanders are a team that is on the rise and I’m thrilled to have the chance to be a part of this young group of players committed to seeing this historic organization succeed,” Strome said. “I couldn’t be happier to begin my career on Long Island.”

Strome split his first OHL season between the Barrie Colts and Niagara, totaling 27 points (eight goals, 19 assists) in 61 games. The 6’0, 177 won a silver medal with Team Ontario at the 2010 Under-17 World Hockey Challenge in Timmins. On the international stage, he attended the 2011 Canadian Junior Evaluation Camp.
