Prospect Watch: Matt Donovan

Position: Defenseman Shoots: Left
Height: 6' 0" Weight: 185
Born: May 09 '90 (Age 19) Phonetic: DAWN-uh-vuhn

UPDATE 2.13.10
Donovan's collegiate career has gotten off to an impressive start. The freshman blueliner is Denver's second-highest scoring defenseman with four goals and 12 assists in 23 games. He is currently two points shy of Pioneers' defensive point leader Patrick Wiercioch (OTT) despite playing in three fewer games.

The Islanders may have gotten a real gem out of Donovan. His improved play has been noticed not only by the Islanders, but by the Kings as well. Donovan is around 3 years away from playing in the NHL, but make no mistake, many people are talking about this kid being on Long Island. His skating needs improvement, but he still has time to develop.

Statistics for this year:

2009-10 U. of Denver NCAA 29 6 12 18
