Islanders Rumored to Be Moving Down to Get Their Man

Similar to when they moved from pick #5 to pick #9 a couple years ago, the Islanders may be headed down in the draft to get the player they want.

According to Pro Hockey Talk, the Isles will likely trade the pick if American defenseman Cam Fowler is not there (which is not probable). The Isles may be looking to take Switzerland’s Nino Niederreiter or Canadian Ryan Johanson. The Isles may be able to scoop up a later pick and still get their man.
