Kevin Czuczman said part of the reason he chose to sign with the Islanders was because he felt comfortable with them.

"Jeff Napierala, their scout, he's been watching me since I was a freshman. He saw something in me and he deserves a lot of credit," Czuczman said. "Doug Weight [Islanders assistant coach and a former Lake Superior player] has talked to me a lot, too. And I worked out this summer with John Tavares and Ryan Strome." Czuczman inked an entry-level deal with the Islanders after the undrafted free agent made a name for himself in the NCAA. He will skip the minors for now, but he might spent a couple games in the press box before making his Islanders' debut.
