Ryan Pilon

Ryan Pilon, the Islanders fifth round pick in the 2015 draft, is leaving the Brandon Wheat Kings.

The 19-year-old defenseman is departing the team for "personal reasons" the Western Hockey League club said in a statement released on Friday afternoon. Pilon had been with the Wheat Kings since the 2013-14 season, when he was traded from the Lethbridge Hurricanes early in the year.
