New York Islanders 2019 NHL Mock Draft 2.0
Picks 21 to 25
Nashville already has a loaded blue line but you can’t help but take Harley here if you’re Nashville. In 68 games in the OHL, Harley has 58 points (11 goals, 47 assists). Harley is from Syracuse, New York but has played in Canada for the last three years.
Vegas lands a quality center 22nd overall in Phillip Tomasino. He’s described as a “dynamic offensive talent” and he’s put that on display with the Niagara IceDogs this year. After a tough first year in the OHL, Tomasino has exploded for 34 goals and 78 points in his second season.
Another center goes off the board to the Pittsburgh Penguins here at 23. Bobby Brink is having a solid year in the USHL with 51 points in just 35 games. Next year, he plans on playing his hockey at the University of Denver.
The New York Islanders select Connor McMichael 24th overall. McMichael is a center who has put up over a point per game with the London Knights this year. He has 72 points (36 goals, 36 assists) this season in 67 games. McMichael is deceivingly quick, has elite puck skills and great one-on-one moves. This would be a great pick to add to the Isles center depth.
*The Los Angeles Kings acquired this pick from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Jake Muzzin trade.
Leason is a much older prospect, he’s already 19, but he is certainly talented enough to go in round one. He has 89 points (36 goals, 53 assists) in the WHL. At six-foot-five he has above average size and he isn’t afraid to use it.
