Observations:

 

 

April 2014 – Dano had an interesting 2013-2014 campaign. He began it in the KHL, playing for HC Slovan Bratislava. There, he amassed just five points in 41 games before transitioning to the Springfield Falcons of the AHL. In eight games with this North American club, he accumulated the same number of points. Dano also participated in the 2014 World Junior Championship for Slovakia. He had two goals and one assist in five games. Slovakia was eliminated by Sweden in the quarterfinals. At just 19 years of age, Dano has plenty of time to bulk up and sharpen the details of his game. After signing a three-year entry-level contract in March, Dano will surely see more time in the AHL. If he keeps pace with the eight games he’s played thus far, he’ll have an impact on the big club in the near future. He has a big body and a high hockey IQ. Chris Bagwell

 

June 2013 – Austrian born Slovak Dano registered his name in the hockey database after a strong 2013 World Junior showing, scoring two goals against the Canadians. His nine points through a half dozen WJC games for Slovakia left scouts very interested in this speedy two-way Austrian born forward with very good hands. Although he is not blessed with ideal size, Dano plays an aggressive game and uses his speed and agility to elude defenders. Dano competed for Slovan Bratislava of the KHL in 2012-13 registering three goals and 7 points in 37 games. Brendan Ross

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

Marko Dano is a skilled forward with top six potential and his willingness to play aggressive helps his chances as a third line forward if he cannot reach his full potential. He needs to show more consistency in his game-to-game play.
