2011-12: Collins wore the “A” at Cornell during his senior season and scored career highs with 13 goals and as many assists. After his season ended, he headed to Springfield and showed a lot of promise with five points in eight games.
Collins needs to work on his puck control, but after four years playing competitively at Cornell a good amount of his game is pretty seasoned. His is known for his dedication to the game and his respected work ethic. He is going to be the guy who is going to block a shot or throw a big hit to swing momentum in his team’s favor.
Collins will spend the next season in the AHL, but if he keeps playing with maturity and totals just under a point per game he can be fighting for a spot in the NHL as soon as the 2013-14 season.
