22 yr old De Haan went out early in the season with a shoulder injury.
22 yr old Donovan was named to the 2012-2013 AHL all-star team. I have to say, I expected him to get a #6 role with the isles. But, Snow must not feel he's nhl ready since he remains Bridgeport's #1 instead of the isles #6.
Other prospects like Mayfield, Pelech, Pokka just aren't nhl ready yet.
