Islanders Add Depth Upfront During 2020 NHL Draft



New York Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello

The New York Islanders opted to use the 2020 NHL Draft to add organizational depth upfront with the selection of three forwards on Wednesday. The Islanders did pick up a defenseman and goaltender as well, but the focus for Lou Lamoriello and the Islanders scouting staff was at forward.

Alexander Ljungkrantz, Alex Jefferies and William Dufour won’t be making an impact on the Islanders roster for some time, but have the potential to be contributors in the years to come. The New York Islanders were limited in what they could do during the draft since they did not have a first or second-round pick this year because of the deadline acquisition of Jean-Gabriel Pageau.
