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.
