Just unbelievably bad luck that it's ANOTHER shoulder injury. He looked really good too when I saw BST play in Hartford

Terrible news for a kid that just can't catch a break. This kids tough climb to the show is looking pretty bleak at this point. Missing so much playing time at a crucial point in his development is really tough to recover from.

A summer prospect report, said De Haan was the Sound Tigers best d-man by the end of the 2011-2012 season.

Losing a full yr of development is a big blow.

Absolutely terrible news, I can't consider him a potential prospect anymore. I'll be suprised if he ends up having a NHL career at this point.

I don't know if this ends his NHL career, it is a major set back though. Best case scenario is that he's physically healthy by the start of next season. From there, he'll need at least half a season at the Bridge to shake off the rust (ala Streit, Okposo) and he might be ready by the start of 2014 (calendar year) to be able to contribute to the big club. He'll probably need the entire year so we're not looking at him until the 2014-2015 season.

The thing for me is that during the 1 1/2 - 2 years that he'll need to get back to 100%, he's going to get passed on the depth chart by several names. Donovan, Ness, Reinhart, Mayfield, Pedan, etc. will all be close to competing (or earned in the case of Donovan and Ness) for a spot on the Isles blue line. He's got a major uphill climb now.

Again, this is terrible news as CDH was looking like he had put everything together this season. I thought he would be a lock to make the Isles next season if the lockout causes a lost season.

I agree, repetitive injuries in the same spot is not a good sign

This sucks, thought he had a good shot of making the team this year.

Thought this when I saw the thread title.

NHL Career may not be over, but his potential definitely takes a huge hit in my book.

This was more of the direction I was going in. I should have been more specific, I doubt he'll have a career with the Isles because by the time he is ready to play, if at all, he will be so low on the depth chart.

I can't stress how tough of a loss this is, Cal was clearly (IMO) the most seasoned defenseman we had in the farm and I was fullly expecting him to make transition to the Post-Streit era painless, luckily I think we have a strong stable of defensive prospects.

If it wasn't for bad luck, he'd have no luck at all.

This really sucks. I hope he's able to get his career going again.

Shoulders are rough. As De Haan has shown, once you dislocate one once it can happen more and more frequently.

Agreed, he's gonna need NFL shoulder pads just to play another game. I don't want to dump on the guy, but I hated the pick when we made it, and now, unfortunately, I don't think he will ever be a servicable NHL defenseman. I wanted Kulikov, and it made sense when we traded up, I was shocked when they called De Haan's name. I can't see how he'll ever make a full season in ANY league, seems like his shoulders are like egg shells. Truly is a shame, was hoping to see him on the Isles this season (if there is a season).

Get well Calvin!

Sad thing is, this will always haunt the kid and honestly I would be surprised if CDH ever amounts to an NHLer.

I am a huge CDH fan too that is the thing, but when you have a shoulder injury they tend to be chronic because the shoulder is not a true ball and socket joint. The area, once injured tends to be worse than any other injured body part.

I was looking forward to him playing a whole AHL season. This is really not good.
