Colin is one of those rink rats who grew up watching the Dallas Stars at their practice facility near his home. Colin also was one of those who benefited from the amount of effort the Stars took in developing the game in the Dallas area - starting from 250 players and no high school teams to 5000 players and 80 high schools.

Colin is a big kid who plays with a mean steak and has pro level skating and shooting capabilities along with nice hands. He started the year with great expectations and was expected to go high in the draft, maybe even first round. Unfortunately for Colin those great expectations never came close to fruition and some would say his game even deteriorated towards the end of the season. Where that leaves Colin for the draft is a good question - if a team thinks it knows what it takes to put Colin back on track, second round is still a possibility. However, the more likely scenario is a team taking Colin in the third round hoping to steal a big power forward with a lot of NHL type qualities right under everyone’s noses.
