Calvin de Haan (born May 9, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman for the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

He was selected 12th overall by the New York Islanders at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and played five seasons with the Islanders before signing with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2018.

Playing CareerEdit

AmateurEdit

Calvin was drafted by the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in the third round, 50th overall, at the 2007 OHL Priority Selection.

Prior to joining the Generals, he played one season with the Kemptville 73's of the Central Junior A Hockey League. He was named the Rookie of the Year in the 2007–08 season after scoring 42 points in 58 games.

During his rookie season with the Generals in 2008–09, he finished second on the team in scoring with 63 points, scoring eight goals and adding 55 assists. The Generals named him their top rookie and top defenceman, while he was also selected to play in the OHL All-Star Game and the 2009 CHL Top Prospects Game.

Ranked 25th by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau heading into the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Calvin expected to be a late first, or early second round, selection. He was eventually selected by the New York Islanders, who made a trade to acquire the 12th overall pick, which they used to draft him.

The following season, Calvin required surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder and was ruled out for the rest of the season.

ProfessionalEdit

Calvin turned professional during the 2011–12 AHL season, appearing in 56 games for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. He made his NHL debut with the Islanders that season, on December 15 against the Dallas Stars. He was sent back to the AHL following his debut and was named to the 2012 AHL All-Star Team.

While playing 17 games for the Sound Tigers during the 2013–14 AHL season, he also skated in 51 games for the Islanders, and scored his first career NHL goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 5–3 victory on January 7, 2014.

On July 15, 2014, the Islanders re-signed Calvin to a three-year, $5.9 million contract worth 1.966,677 annually. He became a regular on the Islanders blueline the following season, appearing in 65 games.

On August 2, 2017, the Islanders re-signed him to a one-year, $3.3 million contract. The two sides were set for an arbitration meeting that afternoon, with the deal being completed in the morning.

During the season, Calvin suffered a lower body injury in a game against the Los Angeles Kings and was ruled out indefinitely for the rest of the season. He missed the rest of the 49 games recovering from the required surgery.

On July 3, 2018, Calvin signed a four-year, $18.2 million contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.

During his first season with the club in 2018–19, he strengthened a dynamic Hurricanes blueline, adding 1 goal and 13 assists in 74 regular season games. Helping Carolina return to the post-season for the first time in 10 years, he appeared in a career high 12 playoff games in reaching the Eastern Conference Finals.

On June 24, 2019, Calvin's tenure with the Hurricanes ended as he was traded along with Aleksi Saarela to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Gustav Forsling and Anton Forsberg.
