I haven't seen or heard anything today regarding the Islanders and Ryan Strome. If Strome is not signed by 5pm Eastern time today, he must be returned to his Junior team. (This rule applies to all players drafted in the first three rounds of the preceding entry draft and have junior eligibility.)
Should Storme not be signed, he will be returned to the Niagara IceDogs of the OHL, and he'll get busy in a hurry. The IceDogs (2-2-0 without Strome) play Thursday/Friday/Saturday this week.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
