2012 NHL draft pick Jake Bischoff has agreed to a two-year, entry level deal with the New York Islanders, per an official press release from the Islanders on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old defenseman has officially completed his college career with the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Bischoff had great success in college, as he recorded 32 points during the regular season, while also being voted the Big Ten’s Defensive Player of the Year.
“I wouldn’t trade the last four years for anything, and I want to thank everyone for supporting us. This will always be a special place for me, and I’m incredibly grateful for everything the University of Minnesota has given me,” Bischoff said in a statement released by the school. “At the same time, I’m excited take the next step in my career by joining the New York Islanders organization.”
Bischoff will likely begin his career in the AHL with the Islanders’ affiliate in the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
