The Islanders have opened up the third round with the 62nd overall selection and have chosen goaltender Anders Nilsson from the Swedish Elite League. Nilsson is ranked 5th among all European netminders, so the Islanders have selected the second and fifth ranked goaltenders in the same round.

Information on Nilsson is a bit hard to find, but I did manage to find some information on NHL.com.
