2011 NHL Draft: Islanders Select Ryan Strome

The New York Islanders used their fifth overall pick on stud forward Ryan Strome in the first round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. 

Strome is expected to add even more offensive firepower to an islanders team that has been stocking up on forwards for the past three year's of the draft. Including John Tavares (who they used with the number one overall pick two years ago). 

Strome posted 33 goals and 73 assists for 106 points in 66 OHL games this season. He was projected to go somewhere within the top-10, and the Islanders snatched him up at five. Added to the current amount of firepower in the Islanders pipelines, Strome has a good shot at making the team out of camp, but the Islanders might end up being patient with his talent. 

The Islanders have more work to do, holding the 34th and the 50th picks in the second round.
