Dan Collins Assigned to ECHL

Dan Collins Rochester AmericansThe Florida Panthers reassigned forward Dan Collins to the Johnstown Chiefs of the ECHL away from the Amerks on Wednesday afternoon.

This move does not come as a surprise at all.

Dan Collins, from Syracuse NY was selected by Florida Panthers in round 3 (#90 overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.  Collins put up some good numbers when he played in the Ontario Hockey League as well as in the ECHL for the Florida Everblades but was not able to produce points while playing in the American Hockey League.

He often seemed slow, out of shape, and out played every time he stepped onto the ice.

The 2009/2010 season is the third and final year of his entry level contract, hopefully the Panthers release him at the end of the season to free up a roster spot.

Here’s his career stats:

As you may be able to notice I’m not a fan of Dan Collins the hockey player.  Nothing personal against him, but he’s not effective on the ice and very rarely has been.

  1. Well Dan has put up some good numbers in the past and continues to work hard. I think you just need to stop your journalistic writing and watch the game. The kid can play and the stats prove it. Averaging over 1 point per game, thats not good enough for ya? J/W…

  2. good for him if he is finally doing well, he certainly wasnt in the ahl when he was up. hopefully he can get another chance and take advantage of it.
