Coach Barry Trotz indicated Thursday that Dal Colle (undisclosed) is fine and that he anticipates the winger playing Thursday versus the Blues.
Dal Colle is aiming to bust out of a pointless streak that dates back to Feb. 6 against the Kings, when he had tallied a point in three straight tilts. Given that he has collected just 10 points (four goals, six assists) through 48 games and sees minimal time on the power play, Dal Colle likely fits the bill mainly of a DFS lineup filler at this point.
Dal Colle (undisclosed) will make the trip to St. Louis on Thursday and is considered day-to-day, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Dal Colle remains bogged down in a 10-game pointless streak during which he's notched 15 shots, 14 hits and four blocks. Given his limited offensive upside, the winger's potential absence likely won't impact the majority of fantasy owners. If the Ontario native won't be able to play Thursday, it could open the door for Andrew Ladd to get another look at a bottom-six role.
Dal Colle (undisclosed) was injured in Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
Dal Colle went to the locker room during the third period and wasn't able to return to the contest. After the game, head coach Barry Trotz didn't provide an update about his condition, per Compton. Trotz said Dal Colle is day-to-day. Expect more information to surface on the 23-year-old's status prior to Thursday's road game in St. Louis.
After having at least one point in three straight games, Dal Colle has gone scoreless in his last three games.
Dal Colle only has four goals, six assists, and a minus-4 rating in 41 games this season and seems highly unlikely to ever return the investment the Islanders placed in him when they selected him with the fifth overall pick in the 2015 draft. Dal Colle should be in line for steady playing time, however, especially with the Islanders expected to be without Casey Cizikas (leg) for an undetermined amount of time.
Dal Colle has three points, all assists, in his last six games.
Dal Colle has been a disappointment for the organization since being drafted in the first round of the 2014 draft. Dal Colle has two goals and five assists with a rating of minus-4 in 35 games this season. Dal Colle does not play regularly, which speaks volumes as the team is desperately looking for offense. It is likely that the only reason Dal Colle is still with the Islanders is because he would have to placed on waivers in order to be sent back down to the AHL, and the Islanders aren't quite ready to give up on him yet.
Dal Colle produced an assist and three hits in Monday's 1-0 win over the Avalanche.
It was a much-needed point for Dal Colle -- he supplied the secondary assist on Anders Lee's lone tally. Dal Colle has been a healthy scratch in three of the Islanders' seven games since he returned from an upper-body injury. The 23-year-old has just five points and 43 hits through 30 contests this season. He's used mostly in a bottom-six role and can be safely overlooked by fantasy owners in redraft formats.
Dal Colle (upper body) is out for warmups and is expected to play in Monday's game against Columbus, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Dal Colle returned to practice Sunday after missing the past three games with the upper-body issue. He was originally supposed to be out until after the holiday break but will make an early return on the Islanders' third line. Dal Colle has just two goals and four points through 26 games this campaign.
Dal Colle (upper body) practiced with the Islanders on Sunday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Dal Colle has missed the past three games due to the injury. The Islanders next play Monday versus Columbus before departing on a three-game road trip that begins Friday in Chicago. The team may feel that even if Dal Colle could play Monday, they are better off holding him out of the lineup and letting him rest and heal fully over the Christmas break. Dal Colle only has two goals and four points in 26 games this season, so it isn't like the team will miss his production. They can afford to play it safe here.
Dal Colle (upper body) is considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's game versus the Ducks, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
Dal Colle's absence will continue to test the Islanders' depth up front, but it won't affect any fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up four points in 26 games this campaign. Another update on the 23-year-old's status should surface once he's cleared to play.
Dal Colle (upper body) is ruled out for Thursday's road game against the Bruins, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.
Dal Colle is still considered day-to-day, so he'll aim to shake this injury by Saturday's home clash against the Ducks. The 23-year-old spends a bulk of his time in the bottom six, averaging 11:13 of ice time and recording four points over 26 games. Dal Colle's absence opens the door for Leo Komarov to crack the lineup again.
Dal Colle (upper body) remains day-to-day ahead of Tuesday night's game against the Predators, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Dal Colle won't be available Tuesday, but he could be ready to rock as soon as Thursday against the Bruins. Once he's given the green light, the 23-year-old will return to a bottom-six role.
Dal Colle (upper body) is considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's clash with Nashville. Coach Barry Trotz told reporters, "Day to day. I don't think it'll be something that's a weekly thing."
If Dal Colle does miss Tuesday's tilt, it sounds like he could still be an option versus Boston on Thursday. The winger scored a goal in just 3:35 of ice time prior to leaving Saturday's matchup with Buffalo due to his upper-body injury. The tally ended a 17-game goal drought for the 23-year-old, who should be able to top his career high of three set last season.
Dal Colle won't return to Saturday's game against the Sabres after sustaining an upper-body injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Dal Colle has been a healthy scratch often lately, sitting out four of the last eight games. The 2014 first-round pick hasn't found his offensive groove yet, posting three points over 25 games. If he's unable to get healthy for Tuesday's matchup against the Predators, the Islanders will need to call up another forward from AHL Bridgeport.
Dal Colle has been a healthy scratch in four of the last five games.
Dal Colle is running out of time to impress the Islanders and prove he deserves to keep his job in the NHL. Dal Colle only has one goal and two assists in 23 games this season and only four goals in 55 games for his career. The Islanders are struggling to score goals of late, but that still hasn't given head coach Barry Trotz a reason to put Dal Colle back in the lineup. If Dal Colle doesn't improve his offensive performance in the near future, a trip to the AHL may be in order.
Dal Colle only has one point, an assist, in his last nine games.
All told, he's got three points in 17 games, so don't be surprised if Dal Colle gets relegated to the press box more often. The winger is not a relevant fantasy asset at this point due to his lack of production.
Dal Colle only has one goal and two points in 10 games so far this season.
This is not what the Islanders expected when they drafted Dal Colle in the first round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Dal Colle only has four goals and five assists in 42 NHL games and is likely only on the team because they are afraid he wouldn't pass through waivers should they try and send him back to the AHL. If Dal Colle continues with this subpar performance, the Islanders may have no choice but to either make him a healthy scratch or lose him to waivers.
The Islanders believe that the reason Dal Colle has had a slow start to the season is that he is still trying to learn the system, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Dal Colle has yet to tally a point and only has two shots on goal during the first two games for the Islanders. Dal Colle won a spot on the team during camp, but that might have been simply to avoid being subjected to waivers. The Isles will likely be patient with Dal Colle this season, but he will need to help out on offense or the team could demote him to a bottom-six role.
Dal Colle finally feels like he is deserving of a regular job in the NHL, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Dal Colle was the fifth overall pick for the Isles in the 2014 NHL draft, but he's had a slow ascent to the big league. The 23-year-old has only played 32 NHL games, but he's finally feeling confident that he belongs with the big club. Dal Colle will have to prove to coach Barry Trotz that he deserves to start on a nightly basis, and that won't be easy, as he'll be battling several other players for a spot in New York's bottom-six. Dal Colle may get the first shot at a third-line role this season, but a slow start will likely see him back with AHL Bridgeport.
Dal Colle signed a two-year contract with the Islanders on Monday.
Dal Colle notched three goals and seven points in 28 games last season as a rookie. The 23-year-old was drafted fifth overall in 2014 and certainly hasn't lived up to that status yet with just 32 career NHL games played. Expect Dal Colle to skate in a bottom-six role this season when he's not a healthy scratch.
The Islanders extended Dal Colle a qualifying offer Tuesday.
Dal Colle was decent in limited action with the big club this season, tallying three goals and seven points in 28 games, but he was highly productive while skating with AHL Bridgeport, racking up 18 goals and 34 points in 34 appearances. The 2014 first-round pick will likely once again split time between the AHL and NHL in 2019-20.
