Islanders Sign Long Island Native to ELC

The New York Islanders may be preparing for the postseason, but the club has now also added to their prospect pool. This is because the Islanders have signed prospect Marshall Warren to a two-year, entry-level contract. 

Warren, 22, was selected by the Minnesota Wild with the 166th overall of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. However, the club elected not to sign him to an entry-level contract after his senior season with Boston College in 2022-23, where he was their captain.

Warren elected to play his fifth collegiate season this year and transferred to the University of Michigan. At Michigan, Warren was once again a key leader in their room, as he sported an 'A' on his sweater. In 41 games with the school, he had four goals to go along with 18 assists. It was enough to grab the Islanders' attention, and now he has earned this sweet ELC because of it. 

Warren certainly has a connection to the Islanders, as he is a Long Island native. That naturally makes this signing a bit cooler for Warren, and it will be fun to see how much of an impact he can make for them from here.
