De Haan was drafted by the Oshawa Generals in the third round, 50th overall, at the 2007 OHL Priority Selection.[1] Prior to joining the Generals, he played one season of Junior A hockey with the Kemptville 73's of the Central Junior A Hockey League. He was named the rookie of the year in 2007–08 after scoring 42 points in 58 games.[2] In his rookie season with the Generals in 2008-09, he finished second in team scoring with 63 points, as he scored eight goals and added 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.[2] Ranked 25th by NHL Central Scouting heading into the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, de Haan expected to be a late first, or early second round selection. The New York Islanders, however, made a trade to acquire the 12th overall pick which they used to draft him.[1]
