Michael Dal Colle Round 1 Pick 5
Dal Colle is a talented forward with pretty decent size. He played with the Oshawa Generals, Kingston Frontenacs and Bridgeport Sound Tigers this past year. He went through a little bit of a slump but the Islanders expect him to bounce back.
His first half with Oshawa was a concern for many but he is still looked at as a top 5 prospect. I don’t think he’s ready just yet. Although Garth may move him before he gets the chance to play with the Islanders.
Joshua Ho-Sang Round 1 Pick 28
Everyone remembers the alarm clock incident with Ho-Sang but it’s unfair to completely judge him for that one mistake. On the ice, he’s smart in the offensive zone. One of his main criticisms is working in the defensive zone.
He’s shown a little bit of a lack of consistency scoring goals so far in his career. The Islanders are looking for a bit more consistency from him before they make the move to bring him up. He’s still got some work to do but Ho-Sang is still considered a top Islanders prospect.
