Playing career[edit]

Amateur[edit]

He was named the Rookie of the Year in the 2007–08 season after scoring 42 points in 58 games.[2] In his rookie season with the Generals in 2008–09, he finished second on the team in scoring with 63 points, scoring eight goals and adding 55 assists. The Generals named him their top rookie and top defenceman, while he was also selected to play in the OHL All-Star Game and the 2009 CHL Top Prospects Game.[2]

Professional[edit]

Ranked 25th by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau heading into the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, de Haan expected to be a late first, or early second round, selection. He was eventually selected by the New York Islanders, who made a trade to acquire the 12th overall pick, which they used to draft him.[1] de Haan played most of the 2011–12 season with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League (AHL), playing 56 games and scoring two goals with 14 assists.[3]

de Haan made his NHL debut on December 15, 2011, in a game against the Dallas Stars which would be his only game in the league that season.[4][3] He scored his first NHL goal on January 7, 2014, against Jonathan Bernier of the Toronto Maple Leafs.[5] de Haan signed a three-year entry level deal with the Islanders in May 2010. For the beginning of the 2010–11 season, he had been reassigned to the Generals and served as their captain.[6]
