With their fourth-round pick, the Isles select a late-blooming goalie who won accolades in his first year with Minnesota State.

Why draft just one goalie when you can draft two?

The New York Islanders have selected their second goalie of the 2013 NHL Draft, using their fourth-round pick (106th overall) on Minnesota State-Mankato goalie Stephon Williams, a 20-year-old late bloomer who shined in his first year in the NCAA.

The Isles previously selected Eamon McAdam with one of their third-round picks.

Williams is a 1993 birthday and was passed over in previous NHL drafts, but he has shined at Minnesota State-Mankato, where he made the WCHA All-Rookie Team, the WCHA First All-Star Team, and WCHA Rookie of the Year. Like McAdam, he is listed at 6'2.

Before heading to Minnesota State he played for the same squad McAdam came from: Waterloo of the USHL, where he had a bit of a viral moment:

Before Waterloo, the Alaska native was with Sioux Falls.

The Islanders' next pick is at 136th overall of the fifth round.
