2012 NHL Mock Draft: Latest Picks For Islanders, Devils, Rangers

With the 2012 NHL Draft less than 24 hours away, the final mock drafts are starting to come out. In his final mock draft, Kevin Allen of USA Today gives his predictions on who the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, and New Jersey Devils.

With the 4th overall selection, Allen has the Islanders taking defenseman Griffin Reinhart from the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL,

4. New York Islanders: D Griffin Reinhart (6-3, 202, Edmonton, WHL). He's big, strong, rangy and not out of place in a defensive stalemate or an offensive showdown. He's the son of former NHL defensemen Paul Reinhart.

Allen has the Rangers taking Michigan left winger Phillip di Giuseppe with the 28th pick,

28. New York Rangers: LW Phillip di Giuseppe, (5-11, 195, University of Michigan). He can skate and seems to be a finisher. As a freshman, di Giuseppe, back, had 11 goals and 26 points in 40 games.

For the Devils, Allen has New Jersey taking Swedish G Oscar Dansk with the 29th pick,

29. New Jersey Devils: G Oscar Dansk (6-3, 185, Brynas, Sweden). He's a big goalie with a very calm demeanor. Seems unflappable, always looks like he's in the right spot.
