Pokka Agrees to Entry-Level Contract

The New York Islanders announced today that Ville Pokka has agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract.

Pokka, 19, scored 27 points (six goals, 21 assists) in 54 games with Karpat during his third full season in the Liiga (Finland). The Tornio, Finland, native was named one of three finalists for the top defenseman in the league. Pokka added 11 points (two goals, nine assists) in 16 playoff games to help lead Karpat to the 2014 Liiga Championship.

The Islanders drafted Pokka in the second round (34th overall) of the 2012 National Hockey League Draft. Pokka has 42 points (12 goals, 30 assists) in 138 career regular season games with Karpat.

On the international stage, Pokka represented Finland at the 2012, 2013 and 2014 World Junior Championships, winning gold in 2014. He also played for Team Finland at the 2011 and 2012 Under-18 World Championships and the 2011 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
