Islanders Prospect Report
An in-depth look at the prospects in the New York Islanders system
Strome fuels Niagara comeback
Center Ryan Strome led the Niagara IceDogs (Ontario Hockey League) to a pair of wins last week, starting with a three-point performance (two goals, one assist) against the Belleville Bulls on Friday, Nov. 23. The following night against the Sudbury Wolves, the IceDogs trailed 5-1 with less than six minutes remaining, but the Mississauga, ON native assisted on four straight goals, including two in the final 28 seconds to force overtime. He, then scored the game-deciding goal in the shootout to cap off the comeback. Strome added an assist in a losing effort Sunday, Nov. 25 at the Oshawa Generals, to extend his point streak to 11 games (eight goals, 22 assists). The Islanders first round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft leads the OHL with 34 assists and 51 points in 27 games.

Pedan launches Guelph on three-game win streak
Defenseman Andrey Pedan recorded a pair of multiple-point games last week, helping the high-powered Guelph Storm (Ontario Hockey League) to three consecutive wins. The Islanders third round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft scored a goal and an assist on Wednesday, Nov. 21 in an 8-0 triumph at the Mississauga Steelheads, and assisted on the game-tying goal in a 3-2 win on Friday, Nov. 23 against the Erie Otters. On Saturday, Nov. 24 against the Ottawa 67’s, Pedan picked up two assists (one shorthanded, one on the power play) in the opening nine minutes as the Storm cruised to a 7-5 victory. The Kaunas, LTU native ranks first among team defensemen and fifth overall with 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) in 23 games.

Lee comes up big for Irish
Center Anders Lee scored three goals and an assist for the University of Notre Dame (Central Collegiate Hockey Association) in a two-game weekend series against the North Dakota Fighting Sioux. On Nov. 23, Lee lit the lamp once and had a goal waived off in the final moments of a 2-1 loss. In the following night’s grudge match, the Edina, MN native posted two goals on nine shots, including the game-winner, adding an assist as the Irish skated to a 5-2 victory. Lee leads the team and is tied for fourth in the conference with 13 points in 13 games.

Odds and ends
Defenseman Brenden Kichton (Spokane Chiefs/Western Hockey League) scored a goal and four assists in three games last week … Forward Mitchell Theoret (Niagara IceDogs/Ontario Hockey League) posted two goals and an assist in three games last week … Defenseman Robbie Russo (Notre Dame/CCHA) earned an assist in both games last week … Defenseman Griffin Reinhart (Edmonton Oil Kings/Western Hockey League) scored the game-winning goal on Nov. 23 against the Moose Jaw Warriors.
