Dal Colle was placed on waivers by the Islanders on Monday, indicating he has signed a contract with New York, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Dal Colle was in camp on a professional tryout and evidently did enough to convince the club to sign him to a permanent deal.

Coach Barry Trotz expects Dal Colle to begin skating with the team once the Isles return to New York ahead of Thursday's Game 3 versus Tampa Bay, so the 24-year-old forward finally appears to be closing in on a return to action.

Dal Colle (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against Boston on Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
At this point, it's certainly possible that Dal Colle is simply a healthy scratch considering that was a frequent occurrence during the regular season.

Dal Colle (undisclosed) will remain on the shelf for Game 2 against Boston on Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Dal Colle (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Saturday's Game 1 versus the Bruins, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Dal Colle was deemed not available for Wednesday's Game 6 win over the Penguins. Head coach Barry Trotz indicated Dal Colle would have replaced Oliver Wahlstrom (undisclosed) in the lineup.

Dal Colle (undisclosed) was not available for Wednesday's Game 6 versus the Penguins, Arthur Staple of The Athletic

The Islanders have had problems scoring goals for over a month, but with only one goal in 26 games this season, Dal Colle doesn't seem to be the answer.

Islanders' Michael Dal Colle: Returns to practice
Dal Colle (lower body) practiced with the Islanders on Tuesday, Neil Best of Newsday reports.
