Isles Talk 2015 Draft Preview: Ryan Pilon

Up next on Isles Talk is a defenseman who should go early in the second round, but may slip quite a bit if other general managers have a personal preference, Ryan Pilon. Yes he is related to former Islanders defenseman Rich Pilon, as Ryan is Rich’s nephew. Their games are very different: Rich was known for the hitting and intimidating, while Ryan plays a clam, more defensive style. He doesn’t crack under pressure and is in very good defensive position. He’s not going to be a top 4 defenseman, but with offensive players like Leddy, Boychuk, Hamonic and Pulock, putting Pilon on a pair with Mayfield sounds like a really good compliment. Hey, what Islanders fan wouldn’t want a Pilon in a Islanders Jersey?
