The Islanders traded center Mike Comrie and defenseman Chris Campoli to the Ottawa Senators on Friday in exchange for forward Dean McAmmond and a 2009 First Draft pick. The pick the Isles have picked up will fall into the San Jose Sharks spot so do not get too excited about another low pick. That pick will likely fall somewhere between 25 and 30.
Comrie, who has battled through some nagging injuries, had 7 goals and 13 assists for 20 points on 41 games with the Isles this season. Originally chosen in the 3rd Round, 91st overall in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers, Comrie has played Oilers, Flyers, Coyotes, Isles and had a previous stint with the Sens. A 503 game veteran, Comrie has 151 goals and 180 assists for 331 career points. In 117 games with the Isles he compiled 28 goals and 41 assists for 69 points.
Through 51 games this season Campoli has 17 points on 6 goals and 11 assists. Selected in the 7th Round, 227th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Campoli surprised everybody and defied his selection predictions. Over 4 seasons with the Isles Campoli played in 228 games to the tune of 83 points (20 goals, 63 assists.
We wish Mike and Chris the best as the move on with their careers.
