New York Islanders prospect Calvin de Haan has sustained a dislocated left shoulder and will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 season due to the injury, according to the Twitter stream of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The 21-year-old defenseman was playing with the Sound Tigers this season after spending the majority of the 2011-12 season with the club.
He suffered the shoulder injury in the final moments of Saturday's game against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. After the Sound Tigers forced a defensive zone faceoff, de Haan dropped to one knee and quickly made his way off the ice, visibly in pain. Unfortunately, this type of development has become common place for de Haan, as he has suffered shoulder injuries in three of the last four seasons.
In 56 games with the Sound Tigers last season, de Haan registered 16 points on two goals and 14 assists. He was originally drafted by the Islanders with the No. 12 overall selection in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
