 UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -Top prospect Kyle Okposo will begin his career in the New York Islanders organization with Bridgeport of the AHL.
Fresh off a solid run in the world junior tournament, Okposo was assigned Sunday by the Islanders to their top minor league affiliate. He will practice with the Sound Tigers on Thursday and make his debut at Binghamton on Friday.
Okposo's first AHL home game will be Saturday against Springfield.
The right winger, chosen by the Islanders with the No. 7 pick in the 2006 draft, had a goal and five assists in seven games for the United States. The Americans finished fourth at the world juniors tournament that wrapped up Saturday in the Czech Republic.
Okposo, a 19-year-old player from St. Paul, Minn., signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders last month, shortly after he left the University of Minnesota.
He will earn $850,000 each year of the deal and is eligible for bonuses that could reach a maximum of another $850,000 per season.
In 1 1/2 seasons at Minnesota, Okposo had 26 goals with 25 assists in 58 games. As a freshman, he had 19 goals and 21 assists in 40 games.
