|Assets:||Plays a safe, reliable game in his own end. Skates extremely well and owns good offensive upside and power-play skills. His style of low-maintenance game can lead to huge amounts of ice time.|
|Flaws:||Lacks the physical ability to dominate from the defense position, which makes him less than ideal in shutdown situations. Needs to become stronger in order to maximize his NHL potential.|
|Career Potential:||Puck-moving defenseman with upside.|

New York Newsday
ImpactDe Haan was limited to just three AHL contests in 2012-13 because of shoulder problems that required two surgeries. Because of that, he was expected to spend this season in the minors to just focus on his development. Instead, he's not only playing for the Islanders, but he's averaging 19:49 minutes per contest. "You can see how he's improved every game," Travis Hamonic said. "We have really good communication and he's asking questions about how to play certain guys. It's neat to see that happening right in front of you." In the long run he might have some fantasy value too, but for now he doesn't do nearly enough offensively.
