According to multiple sources, the Islanders are among the group of teams being "considered" by Merrimack's Stephane Da Costa.
As Newsday reported earlier this month, the Islanders are one of many NHL teams keenly interested in the 21 year-old French forward and they have made a significant effort to court the collegiate standout. The Rangers are also in the mix of teams after him.
Da Costa, who posted his second straight 45-point season during his sophomore campaign this year, is expected to make a decision on where to sign later this week. According to several reports, Ottawa appears to be the front-runner in landing the talented centerman.
