Gophers' Ness to sign with Islanders

Minnesota defenseman Aaron Ness says he will skip his senior season and sign his pro contract with the New York Islanders.

Ness had two goals and 12 assists in 35 games this season for the Gophers, who were eliminated in the first round of the WCHA tournament.

He was a second-round pick of the Islanders in 2008 after starring in high school at Roseau.
