Calvin de Haan was 5-19-24 in 34 games this season before suffering a shoulder injury that required surgery. He was also a member of Team Canada at the World Junior Championships, where he missed two games with a head injury.
At the draft, the Islanders believed de Haan was a future first-pair defenseman and traded several picks to move up from the 26th pick to get him. In moving from 26 to 16, the Islanders gave up picks 37, 62 and 92 to Columbus – bringing back the Blue Jackets’ 77th overall pick. They then moved from 16 to 12 by trading the 77 and their 182nd. The final cost was one pick from each of the second, third, fourth and sixth rounds to move from 26 to 12.
DeHaan is spending time on Long Island this offseason rehabbing his shoulder. Comments.
