Isles Select Kirill Kabanov in 3rd Round

After trading both of their 2nd round picks to move up, the Islanders' first move on Day 2 was an interesting one. They selected Russian winger Kirill Kabanov at #65 (3rd round). Kabanov is projected as being a top-notch talent with maturity issues.

The move is another swing for the fences by Garth Snow, as we've seen in past seasons. It's definitely a low-risk, high-reward selection for the team.
