The 2009-10 New York Islanders season is the 37th season for the New York Islanders in the National Hockey League.[1] Following the trade of Bill Guerin during the 2008–09 season, the Islanders named center Doug Weight the team's new captain. Kyle Okposo, Richard Park, Mark Streit, and Brendan Witt serve as the teams assistant captains.[2] The year opened with the 2009 NHL Entry Draft on June 26–27, with the Islanders using their 1st selection in the draft to take in John Tavares.[3]

PreseasonEdit

Dwayne Roloson

Dwayne Roloson served as the Islanders' goalie in only their last preseason game: a 2-4 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Before the regular season began, the New York Islanders played a series of exhibition games. Only one game was held at Nassau Coliseum, in which the Islanders lost to the New Jersey Devils by a score of 2-4.[4] Their first exhibition game was held on September 14, when the Islanders were defeated by the Vancouver Canucks, 2-1. The Islanders played two games at the place they held their training camp, the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. They won the two games held there, defeating the Flames on the 19th, and the Oilers on the 20th. As previously expected, the Islanders played one game in the new Sprint Center in Kansas City against the Los Angeles Kings, in which the Islanders lost 2-4. The team's final exhibition game was on September 29 against the Devils at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, where they again lost 2-4.[5]

TransactionsEdit

Before the 2009–10 season got underway, the Islanders were involved in many transactions, and signed and lost some free agents. Their first trade for the season was made at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, where the New York Islanders sent four draft picks to the Columbus Blue Jackets, in exchange for two draft picks (including a first round pick that allowed them move up ten spots from a previously acquired pick). The team would make another trade with the Blue Jackets later on in the draft. The Islanders also made a trade with the Minnesota Wild, which allowed them to move up four additional spots [to pick #12] from the position they were in after their original trade with Columbus. They wound up using the pick to draft Calvin de Haan from the Ontario Hockey League. In the third round, the Islanders traded a third round pick in the 2010 draft for pick #62 in the current draft. On June 30, 2009, the Islanders traded Ben Walter and a conditional pick in the 2010 draft to the New Jersey Devils for Tony Romano.

The Islanders signed many free agents as well, including veteran goalie Dwayne Roloson on July 1. The following day, the Islanders signed three other players, those being Scott Munroe, Brett Westgarth, and Jeremy Reich. On July 6, the Islanders acquired four minor-league players, and lost two of their own (Chris Lee and Peter Mannino). Yann Danis and Joe Callahan both left the Islanders as well on July 10 and 16, respectively. The Islanders' most recently acquired is goaltender, Martin Biron, who played last season for the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Islanders also signed their #1 draft pick from 2009, John Tavares to a three–year entry–level contract on July 15,[8] and resigned Nate Thompson to a one–year two–way contract on July 25.[9]

Draft picksEdit

It's a big moment for the franchise. We just have to go through the process of scouting meetings. When we go through the process of meeting them -- not only in the combine, but bringing them to Long Island -- and getting to know them, it's going to be a fun part of the process. We need great players and we need a new building -- there's no doubt about that. There's a lot of good things happening right now with this organization. It's an exciting time to be an Islanders fan and a New York Islander."
Garth Snow via NHL.com

The Islanders held the 1st pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, to be held in Montreal. On April 14, 2009, it was announced that the Islanders had won the 2009 NHL Draft Lottery and earned the 1st draft pick for the fourth time in the franchise's history.[14] Going into the lottery, the Islanders held a 48.2% chance of winning the lottery, due to their coming in last place in the 2008–09 NHL season. In addition to the first pick, the Islanders hold the 26th draft pick during the first round, acquiring it from the San Jose Sharks, and three second–round draft picks. Matt Duchene, Victor Hedman, Evander Kane, Brayden Schenn, and John Tavares are the favorites to be drafted by the first five teams. Garth Snow mentioned in an article on the New York Islanders' official website, that the Islanders' management have scouted each of these players for years. Since the announcement about the Islanders picking first in the draft, their ticket sales department has seen a 300-percent increase in phone calls and email inquiries over last year at this time.[15][16][17]

During the draft, the Islanders selected center John Tavares as their first pick and also the first pick overall in the draft.[18] After selecting Tavares, the Islanders made a trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets that sent the Islanders' picks 26, 37, 62, and 92 (in 2009) to the Blue Jackets in exchange for picks 16 and 77 (in 2009). With this trade, the Islanders had moved up from pick 26, to pick 16 in the first round of the 2009 draft. Following this, the Islanders made another trade, this time with the Minnesota Wild. The Islanders gave Minnesota picks 16, 77, and 182 (in 2009) in exchange for pick 12 from Minnesota (in 2009). At this point, the Islanders had moved up from pick 26, to pick 12. With the 12th pick, the Islanders selected Calvin de Haan, a defenceman from the Ontario Hockey League.[19]
