Nino Niederreiter's representatives are seeking a trade from the New York Islanders, a source told ESPN New York's Katie Strang.
Niederreiter didn't get an invite to training camp despite tearing up the AHL this season at a point-per-game pace. At the time, GM Garth Snow said the team had a plan for the former No. 5 overall pick and that Niederreiter was on track with that plan. Apparently, he's no longer pleased with how the organization views it. Niederreiter struggled last season, scoring one goal and posting a minus-29 rating in 55 games with the Islanders, but could make an impact if given a fresh start elsewhere.
