Organizational Comments: Griffins Head Coach - Ben Simon "After his first shift he settled in really, really nicely, All things considered with what he went through, he did well. You could tell he was a smart guy. He didn't put himself into binds and kept it simple. And, as a young defenseman, that's a good thing."
What GRC says: Fall 2020 Dello was solid in his pro debut in the last game before the COVID shutdown. He is a good defensive defender who sees the ice well and takes care of business in his own end. The former Notre Dame standout was highly regarded going into his draft year but somehow got passed over. He will have to find an opportunity on what is projected to be a deep blueline corps but could force his way into the lineup with a strong camp.

Role: Defensive defender
Projection: NHL 5-6 defenseman
