Dellandrea has been reassigned from OHL Flint to AHL Texas, the Dallas Stars official website reports.
With Flint being one of the worst teams in the OHL (16-46-6) and the club out of the playoff picture for months, Dellandrea will finish the season with Dallas's AHL affiliate, the Texas Stars. The 2018 first-round selection (13th overall) finished his OHL campaign with 22 goals and 63 points in 60 games. Those statistics have to be taken with a grain of salt given the lack of talent on Flint's roster. Dellandrea certainly would have put up better numbers had he been playing for a better junior organization.
Dellandrea chipped in two assists in OHL Flint's 7-1 rout of Kingston on Sunday.
Flint (4-29-2) is by far the worst team in all the CHL, but Dellandrea is making the best of a bad situation. He gets significant minutes in all situations and is producing offensively (31 points in 29 games) despite the lack of talent surrounding him. Dellandrea was a recent cut at Canadian World Junior camp, but the 2018 first-rounder should stand a decent chance of cracking the roster next year.
Dellandrea agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with the Stars on Wednesday.
Dellandrea racked up 27 goals and 32 assists in 67 outings last season, convincing Dallas to select him 13th overall in the 2018 NHL Draft. The 18-year-old will likely return to OHL Flint for another season, although spending some time a training camp will certainly help his development.
