Michael Dal Colle Not Given QO by Islanders; Six Players Receive Qualifying Offers

Michael Dal Colle

The New York Islanders did not extend a qualifying offer to Michael Dal Colle, according to Newsday’s Andrew Gross.

The Islanders did not release their list of qualifying offers on Monday. Anthony Beauvillier, Kieffer Bellows, Anatolii Golyshev, Otto Koivula, Adam Pelech and Ilya Sorokin did receive qualifying offers, according to Gross.

Dmytro Timashov and Bobo Carpenter were also not extended qualifying offers.

Dal Colle comes as the biggest surprise among the group that did not receive offers from the Islanders. The former fifth overall pick developed into a bottom-six role for the Islanders when he did play.

The 25-year-old forward appeared in 26 games in the COVID-19 shortened season and had a goal and four points. Michael Dal Colle played in 111 games in his four years with the Islanders. He had eight goals and 21 points over that span in the NHL.

Dal Colle was drafted in the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft in Philadelphia but never developed into the type of player he was expected to be having been drafted as high as he was. Michael Dal Colle had turned into a solid player under Barry Trotz in his own zone and was responsible with the puck, but his scoring production was never there.

Beauvillier, Pelech and Sorokin headlined the list of players that were qualified. All three will receive raises, with Pelech getting the biggest of the three.

Pelech is reportedly the Islanders’ biggest priority this offseason, and rightfully so being one of the team’s top defenseman. The defender is looking at a deal somewhere in the $5 million range per year.
