Dana Lattery

Heard that the Providence Bruins signed former Western Michigan University standout Dana Lattery to a tryout contract. Does anyone think he will have much of an impact with the team? What type of player is he?

interesting. he attended the Flames prospect camp this summer, I was fairly impressed as a strong player with some hands...I Think there were some negotiations with the Flames that fell through, and then he did end up signing independently with the Flames ECHL affiliate I believe

I think he could eventually be a solid AHLer. not sure about this year though?>

He has potential to be a decent 2nd/3rd line forward in the AHL. Dana is one of those meat and potatoes type player. He isn't the biggest guy standing some 5'11" tall, but he is built like a tank weighing in at 220. He was by far the strongest player on the team when he played here at Western. His style is more of a grinder, checking line forward, has decent hands, offensive ability, and is very sound defensively too. I don't think he will be a big point producer as he will be used more as a checker. If put on a scoring line, he can chip in here and there. He was named captain for the Broncos for a number of seasons and should prove to be a great locker room type guy / team player.

Also should be noted: he will join former WMU teammate David Gove on the Bruins club.

I saw Lattery play numerous times when he was with the Olds Grizzlys of the AJHL. He was a big scorer in Jr A and a excellent veteran influence in the last couple years with Olds. He has undoubtedly moulded his game to find a niche in pro hockey but if given the chance he can contribute offensively.

Lattery was far too good to be playing here in the ECHL. Definately our best player. I don't expect to see him back here. And, yeah, he seems more like a checking line winger, but he put up 23 points in 26 games here. Not a lot of PIMs. Just a tough mucker who contributes. He should have a solid career in the A.
