Islanders Prospect Report
An in-depth look at the prospects in the New York Islanders system
Graham’s three-point night leads Niagara
Defenseman Jesse Graham posted three points (one goal, two assists) for the Niagara IceDogs (Ontario Hockey League) in a dramatic 4-3 overtime win over the Sudbury Wolves on Dec. 28. The Oshawa, ON native recorded a power play goal in the second period and an assist in the third before Sudbury came back to tie the game. In overtime, Graham and fellow Islanders prospect Mitchell Theoret set up the game-winning goal. The Islanders sixth round (155th overall) selection in the 2012 NHL Draft has two goals and 12 assists in 37 games this season.

Pelech powers Erie
Defenseman Adam Pelech posted two assists in the Erie Otters (Ontario Hockey League) 6-4 win over the Barrie Colts on Dec. 29. Pelech assisted on the game’s first goal early in the first period, and added another in the second. Pelech leads Otters blueliners with 29 points (five goals, 24 assists) in 37 games this season.

Koskinen shuts the door
Goaltender Mikko Koskinen continued his solid play between the pipes for KalPa Kuopio (SM-liiga) with wins in both starts last week. Koskinen stopped 35-of-36 shots in a 2-1 win against Ilves Tampere on Dec. 28, and 26-of-27 the next night in a 5-1 win at TPS Turku. The Vantaa, FIN native leads Finland’s top league with a 2.01 goals-against average and 1994 minutes played this season.

Three in action at World Juniors
Center Ryan Strome (Canada), defenseman Griffin Reinhart (Canada) and defenseman Ville Pokka (Finland) are representing their respective countries at the U-20 World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia. Check out the 2013 WJC Blog for updates on the action.
