Islanders select Reinhart fourth overall

PITTSBURGH, PA (June 22, 2012) — The New York Islanders have selected Griffin Reinhart with the fourth overall pick in the 2012 National Hockey League Draft. Islanders General Manager Garth Snow announced the pick Friday night at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

Reinhart, a native of North Vancouver, BC, led Edmonton Oil Kings defensemen with 12 goals in 58 games during the 2011-12 season. The 18-year-old also added 24 assists for 36 points during his second season in the Western Hockey League.

“Our organization is fortunate to have already developed a formidable young core, which gives us the flexibility to allow elite prospects like Griffin to develop,” Snow said. “He is a highly skilled defenseman who has been very impressive in his first two WHL seasons. Griffin’s size and defensive instincts will be another piece to help solidify our lineup for years to come.”

In 2010-11, Reinhart scored 25 points (six goals, 19 assists) in 45 games as a rookie with Edmonton. A member of bronze medal-winning Team Pacific at the 2011 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, Reinhart recorded seven points (one goal, six assists) in six games..

Reinhart joined the Vancouver Northwest Giants in 2009-10 and captured a B.C. Major Midget League Championship. He first played midget at age 14, leading the Hollyburn Huskies to a provincial title in 2008-09 by scoring 18 points in six playoff games.

This pick marked the fourth time in Islanders history that the club selected fourth overall. Previous fourth-overall picks include Clark Gillies in 1974, Scott Lachance in 1991 and Roberto Luongo in 1997.
