Nino Niederreiter has requested a trade from the New York Islanders.
Niederreiter is a former No. 5 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft. He is unhappy with his current situation with the Islanders and thinks he is better off playing for another NHL team.
Niederreiter was not invited to the Islanders training camp despite leading the team’s AHL affiliate in scoring before the lockout ended.
His agent informed Islanders GM Garth Snow of the trade request.
The Columbus Blue Jackets, Montreal Canadiens and Anaheim Ducks all have a huge interest in Niederreiter.
