Islanders Select Dal Colle 5th Overall

The New York Islanders have selected Michael Dal Colle with the fifth overall pick in the 2014 National Hockey League Draft. Islanders General Manager Garth Snow announced the pick Friday at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Dal Colle, a native of Richmond Hill, Ontario, scored 95 points (39 goals, 56 assists) in 67 games with the Oshawa Generals this past season, his second Ontario Hockey League campaign. The 6’1, 182-pound winger added 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) in 12 OHL playoff games last season and was named to the OHL Second All-Star Team.

“Drafting a player of Michael’s caliber is another building block in what is an important offseason for the organization,” Snow said. “We’re excited to see him develop into another key piece of our core. Michael has top-end offensive skill, paired with two-way instincts and hockey sense, which are assets we are thrilled to add to the Islanders.”

In 2012-13, Dal Colle was named to the OHL First All-Rookie Team after collecting 48 points (15 goals, 33 assists) in 63 games with Oshawa.

On the international stage, he won gold with Team Canada at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament and played for Canada-Ontario at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

This pick marked the seventh time the Islanders have selected fifth overall at the NHL Draft. Other fifth-overall selections include Ryan Strome (2011), Nino Niederreiter (2010), Raffi Torres (2000), Tim Connolly (1999), Eric Brewer (1997) and Darius Kasparaitis (1992).
