The New York Islanders signed Mathew Barzal to a three-year, entry-level contract on Thursday.
GM Garth Snow selected Barzal with the 16th overall pick of the 2015 NHL Draft.
He scored 57 points in 44 games with the WHL’s Seattle Thunderbirds in 2014-15, turning heads with his combination of speed and skill.
The 18-year-old has time to mature, yet some Isles fans may already be giddy picturing how he could add to a group that is already bursting with prime-age talent.
