In the following video he talks about that very subject at the 1:40 mark:
"In the back of my mind, I'm always wondering what's gonna happen next; if the Islanders are going to sign me, if I'm going to go back in the draft or what the deal is."[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6Va7tkIYsQ&w=640&h=360]
Kichton is an interesting case, having been passed over in the 2010 draft after a 19 point season in his sophomore stint in Spokane. After being passed up he headed back to Spokane and broke out in 2010-11 with 81 points in 64 games and put up another 74 in 71 during 2011-12. All of that's got to be taken with knowledge that many of those points came on the power play and that he's a year older than the rest of his draft class. Nonetheless, Kichton is an intriguing prospect in what is a deep Islanders defensive pool.
