Islanders Prospect Report

by Michael Miller / New York Islanders



Dal Colle Dominating with Kingston

Michael Dal Colle registered a season-high five points (2G, 3A) in Friday night’s 5-2 win over his former team, the Oshawa Generals. The Islanders’ 2014 first-round pick added a goal in Saturday’s overtime win over the Owen Sound Attack and assisted on the lone Kingston goal in Sunday’s 3-1 loss to Kitchener. 

Dal Colle was traded from Oshawa to Kingston on New Year’s Day and has made the most of his fresh start with the Frontenacs recording 10 points (5G, 5A) in just four games. 

Ho-Sang Helped IceDogs to Perfect Week

Joshua Ho-Sang had another big week with the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League, tallying five points (5A) to help his team sweep the week. Ho-Sang recorded two assists in each of Niagara’s wins over the Hamilton Bulldogs on Wednesday and the Saginaw Spirit on Friday. The former Islanders’ first -rounder capped off his week with an assist in a 3-2 overtime win over the Flint Firebirds. 

The Thornhill, Ontario native continues to lead the IceDogs in assists (38) and points (51). Ho-Sang’s 51 points is good for eighth in OHL scoring. 

Wotherspoon Leading Tri-City’s Blueliners

Defenseman Parker Wotherspoon posted a six-point week for the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League. Wotherspoon started the week with three assists in the two-game split with the Victoria Royals on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Surrey, B.C. native followed that up with a three-point night (1G, 2A) in Saturday’s loss to Kelowna Rockets. 

The Islanders’ 2014 fourth-round pick (112th overall) currently ranks second on Tri-City in points with 38, the best among Americans’ defenseman. Wotherspoon’s 38 points also puts him in the top five in scoring among all WHL blueliners.

Sound Tigers Send a Pair to AHL All-Star Game 

Bridgeport: 19-16-2-1, (41 points), 4th in Atlantic Division, 7th in Eastern Conference

Bridgeport dropped both games this week, but remained stationary in the league standings. With the back-to-back losses, the Sound Tigers matched season-long pointless streak at three games. Bridgeport will look to bounce back as they visit the Portland Pirates for a pair of games on Friday and Saturday before returning home the following night to host the Leigh Valley Phantoms. 

The highlight of the week for Bridgeport was the announcement that two Sound Tigers were heading to the 2016 AHL All-Star Classic. Defenseman Ryan Pulock and forward Joe Whitney will represent the Sound Tigers at this year’s event in Syracuse, NY on Sunday, Jan. 31 and Monday, Feb. 1. 

Pulock, 21, will represent Bridgeport for the second straight-season at the AHL All-Star Classic. The Islanders’ 2013 first-round draft pick paces all Bridgeport defenseman with 17 points (6G, 11A) in 36 games this season.  

Whitney, 27, will be on his way to his third-straight all-star game. Whitney currently leads all Sound Tigers with 33 points (14G, 19A), good for fifth in the AHL.

Mavericks Continue to Impress

Missouri: 28-3-1-1, (58 points), 1st in Central Division, 1st in Western Conference, 1st in the ECHL

The ECHL-leading Missouri Mavericks eight-game winning streak came to an end last week, as the team went 2-1.

Next up the Mavs will head to Wichita to face the Thunder on Tuesday opening a three-game road trip. The team looks to build on what has been a very successful season thus far, comfortably sitting atop the ECHL with 58 points.
