2011 NHL Draft Results: Islanders Grab Center, Defenseman In Second Round

The New York Islanders had a pair of second-round selections on Day 2 of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday and used them to select defenseman Scott Mayfield (34th overall) and center Johan Sundstrom (50th).

Mayfield was the 24th ranked prospect in the draft overall, per NHL.com. The NHL Central Scouting Bureau said of Mayfield:

"Scott plays the body well and is physical but not in an overly rambunctious way. He can close off the forechecker up high and is controlled, poised and calm in his play. He plays like a seasoned veteran. Scott has a smooth, strong and effortless stride, his passes are crisp and he sees the ice well. He has a very good wrist shot and controls the play from the point on the power play."
