After garnering Ontario Hockey League player of the week honours, the Canadian Hockey League announced today that it named Oshawa Generals forward Michael Dal Colle their player of the week.

And rightfully so.

Dal Colle was on a tear for the opening week of the Ontario Hockey League. He lead the Oshawa Generals to two road victories notching up 7 points; 4 goals and 3 assists. Definitely a player to keep an eye on this season.

Dal Colle is eligible for the 2014 National Hockey League draft and is expected to go in the top 20. He earned himself his first taste of international competition when he struck gold with Team Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament in the Czech Republic back in August.

The Richmond Hill native is in his second OHL campaign with the Oshawa Generals. The Generals are back in action on the road in Guelph this Friday. Puck drop is 7:30.

Oshawa’s home opener is two days late when the Kitchener Rangers come to town.
