The Islanders signed prospect Jake Bischoff to a two-year, entry level contract, the team announced on Tuesday. Bischoff was selected 185th overall by the Islanders during the 2012 NHL draft.
Bischoff has spent the last four years playing for the University of Minnesota and served as an alternate captain for the last two seasons. The 22-year-old defenseman recorded a career high 32 points (five goals, 27 assists) this season and was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.
Bischoff will report to AHL Bridgeport on an ATO, according to Newsday’s Arthur Staple.
The Islanders have also inked Boston College forward Matt Gaudreau to a deal, according to Staple. Gaudreau had eight goals and 27 assists for 35 points this past season with the Eagles.
