'Connolly, 21, played in all 82 games for the Islanders last season and had 10 goals and 31 assists. The fifth overall pick in the 1999 draft, he had 14 goals as a rookie in 1999-2000. Pyatt, 21, had four goals and 14 assists in 78 games as a rookie last season. "We felt strongly we needed a playmaking center in the deal and we think we got that with Connolly," Regier said.'
