On two consecutive days, the New York Islanders announced two big additions to the Islanders franchise.  First, the Islanders' signed top prospect Sean Bentivoglio, who was CHA player of the year with Niagara University and had a very impressive stint with the Providence Bruins in the AHL.  FULL OFFICIAL ARTICLE

Today, the Islanders made a different type of addition by adding a new ECHL affiliate.  The team is the Utah Grizzles, who had been unaffiliated since joining the ECHL in 2005.  The Grizzles, however, were affiliated with the Islanders from 1994-1998 when they played in the International Hockey League.  FULL OFFICIAL ARTICLE

HNLI Thoughts:

I really like what Garth Snow and the Islanders are doing here.  Similar to the earlier signing of prospect Trevor Smith, the Islanders bolstered their system by signing Bentivoglio.  The guy has been compared to the likes of Chris Drury.  It will be interesting to see how that works out. 

As far as the Grizzles go, it is a good move.  After losing their affiliation with the Ice Pilots, it's good to know that the Isles and Soundtigers have a team in the ECHL that they can count on.
