Draft Profile: Michael Dal Colle

photo by sportsnet

To conclude our set of draft profiles we will look at forward Michael Dal Colle.

Dal Colle rounds out what has been a pretty much consensus top 5 of this draft for some time now.  In 67 games this season for the Oshawa Generals, Dal Colle put up 95 points including 39 goals.  Also, in 12 playoff games this year he had 20 points including 8 goals.  At 6'2 217 Dal Colle's frame combined with scoring ability and hockey IQ has left some scouts jumping at the chance to add him to their teams system and with good reason.  

Most mock drafts have the Islanders taking Dal Colle in their fifth spot should they keep their pick.  With the Islanders lack of forward depth in the system specifically on the wing Dal Colle would fit the Islanders needs perfectly.
