Later Rounds | Picks 125 and 185

With their remaining two picks Garth Snow selected defenseman Tony DeHart of the Oshawa Generals at 125 in the fifth round and goaltender Cody Rosen from Clarkson University at 185 in the seventh round of the draft.

For DeHart after being drafted in 2010 he never broke out of the ECHL. The 6’2″ defender while scoring 50 points in his draft year just couldn’t reproduce that form in the higher leagues. He last played in Italy in 2015.

Rosen drafted from Clarkson University of the NCAA never got into the NHL, AHL or even the ECHL. He last played in the SPHL for the Knoxville Ice Bears putting up a 0.886SV% and 3.54GAA in 15 games.

But that’s what happens with picks in the later round. You pick a player and hope it works out. Its great if there’s something there, but usually it doesn’t work out.

Unfortunately Swedish defenseman John Klingberg (131st) and even Brendan Gallagher (147th) were still available when the Isles selected Tony DeHart in the fifth round. Either one would have been a welcomed addition to the Islanders core

In the seventh round of the 2010 draft Frederik Andersen of the Toronto Maple Leafs (drafted by Carolina 187th) was still on the board when they settled on Cody Rosen. To bad they didn’t take the Danish goalie. But then again goalies are absolute voodoo when it comes to the NHL draft.
