New York Islanders have re-signed two unsigned free agents. Michael Dal Colle and Josh Ho-Sang have signed for an extended contract with Islanders. Islander GM Lamoriello had mentioned earlier that they have agreed with two free agents players.
Dal has signed for a minimum $700,000 two year contract while Ho-Sang signed for an $874,000 two year pact. Now, Anthony Beauvillier is the only player with no new deal.
Dal Colle was the fifth overall pick in 2014. He entered the pro ranks with high expectations, but up to now, he is struggling to prove that he is an NHL-caliber player. Dal has seven points at his side since joining the NHL. He has been good, but far from the elite class.
When the team selected him, he was expected to be the likes of William Nylander, Dylan Larkin and Nikolaj Ehlers.
Ho-Sang was also selected No.23 in the first round picks. He has been productive to New York. He has recorded double-digit points in less than 25 first games in his NHL career. However, he deteriorated in the 2018-19 season and only managed two points in ten NHL games.
Now, the roles of both players remain anonymous, but they still have time to prove their worth and commitment.
