Prospect Watch: Brian Day

Update 2.13.10 From Omair Taher

Day continues to improve steadily in his junior season at Colgate. The Islanders' sixth pick in the 2006 draft currently leads the Raiders with 16 goals, and is third in points with 26 in 26 games behind Devils prospect David McIntyre and Stars prospect Austin Smith. Day has been more of the triggerman on the team this year, and would have one more if not for a goal being incorrectly waved off going in off his skate.

Drafted 171st overall in the 2006 Entry Draft. From what I could find, Colgate star Brian Day is an old-school power-forward that continues to drive to the net. He is a hard worker who can be strong in his own zone and isn’t afraid to agitate. He’ll have to add some muscle to his 6’, 186 lbs build in order for his style of play to be effective in the NHL.

Could be compared to a Jeremy Colliton, a solid fourth-line player at the NHL level, with lots of spunk. Either way would expect to be a very good Sound Tiger, and a decent call-up when needed.
