Reports — Islanders Sign Quinnipiac’s Mike Dalhuisen

The Quinnipiac Bobcats lost to Yale in the final of the NCAA Frozen Four last weekend. A few days later, the Islanders signed one of Quinnipiac’s defenders, Mike Dalhuisen, according to both the University and the New Haven Register.

The Quinnipiac school paper, the Quad News, had this scouting report on Dalhuisen:

Dalhuisen flourished for the Bobcats this past year, playing in 42 games with a career high 8 goals and 8 assists. He finishes his time at Quinnipiac with 38 total points with 12 goals and 26 assists.

He was born in Nijmegen, Netherlands and moved to Canada, and eventually the United States, as a teenager to pursue hockey. Dalhuisen played junior hockey in Ontario for a few seasons before moving on to the Chicago Steel and the Lincoln Stars in the United States Hockey League before joining Quinnipiac for the last four years.

Dalhuisen, 24 years old, also had 73 penalty minutes and is a big guy. He’s 6-foot-3 and listed at 215 by the school. He is expected to report to Bridgeport next year.
