Isles assign Strome to Bridgeport

Not long after announcing the signing of Anders Lee to a two-year entry-level prospect, the Islanders released some additional prospect news.

The Islanders have assigned former first-round pick Ryan Strome (2011, fifth overall) to their AHL affiliate in Bridgeport, Conn.

Strome just finished his season with the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League, where the 19-year-old center racked up 268 points over the last three seasons.

He is expected to spend the rest of the season with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
