Islanders on the horizon
A look at six Islanders prospects who could be on the team's 2013-14 roster.
Forward, 21, 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, 2010 1st round draft pick
Has 18 goals and 43 points with Bridgeport. Could be the answer to the Isles hole at the No. 2 center spot next season.
Forward, 22, 6-foot-3, 218 pounds, 2009 6th round pick
The Notre Dame captain has 20 goals and 38 points in his junior year and will likely join the Islanders as soon as the Irish season ends.
Defenseman, 19, 6-foot-4, 202 pounds, 2012 1st round pick
Big, steady defenseman would be making a huge leap as a teenager next season, but has the makeup to do it.
Forward, 20, 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, 2010 1st round pick
Leads Bridgeport with 26 goals this season, but agent asked for a trade. Will have a chance to earn a key top-six forward spot next season.
Forward, 19, 6-foot-1, 183 pounds, 2011 1st round pick
Piled up 94 points in his third year with Niagara of the OHL. When his team ends its playoff run, may join Bridgeport for the rest of the season.
Defenseman, 20, 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, 2011 2nd round pick
Has 17 points and 108 penalty minutes for U. of Denver, leading the team into the NCAA Tournament.
