de Haan will make his season debut tonight against Washington.
de Haan was recalled on Thursday, but was a healthy scratch on Friday. He will be inserted into the lineup tonight with Radek Martinek coming out. The 2009 12th overall pick has just one game of NHL experience (2011-12). In 17 games with Bridgeport (AHL) this season he had one goal and two assists. He was a good offensive defenseman in the OHL, but has yet to excel offensively in the AHL to this point (2G / 18A in 76 games).
All we know is CDH will be evaluated today, but if he has another shoulder issue then it adds yet another to the collection of worry dolls, de Haan having had his share of shoulder issues already at this early stage.
Not only is de Haan a top prospect but he represents a big part of the team's depth. Expect a further update on the blue chip prospect.
#Isles return Poulin, de Haan to BPT.
De Haan has no fantasy hockey value while in the AHL. He had no points but took two shots, two hits and a plus-1 in his NHL debut.
De Haan, Poulin emergency recall for #Isles.
Expect De Haan to play with Dylan Reese tonight. The top prospect has two goals and eight points through 22 games in the AHL.
