According to Elliotte Friedman of the CBC the Islanders have signed Lake Superior State defenseman Kevin Czuczman. He had 23 points and 10 goals in 36 games this season, his junior year, for the Lakers. With Lake Superior’s season over last weekend, he was eligible to be signed.
Czuczman had supposedly been highly sought after by as many as 16 teams, according to Draft Expert Mark Seidel. SB Nation recently named Czuczman as part of their WCHA first team, which named the best players in that conference, and has him ranked 82nd in their top 100 NCAA prospects feature, which is yet to be posted.
A Point Blank source has confirmed Friedman’s report.
