NHL Draft 2011 Results: New York Islanders Select Ryan Strome With 5th Pick

With the 5th pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, the New York Islanders select Ryan Strome, a center from the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League.

Strome scored 106 points in the 2010-11 season with Niagara, and a lot of scouts expected his season to wind down after a furious start to the year. It didn't. Strome kept a hot pace all year long, and when you add his scoring acumen to his top-notch skating and crisp vision, you have a dangerous prospect.

Find more on Ryan Strome via two draft profiles on the SB Nation network: one at The Cannon and one at In Lou We Trust.
