Daultan Michael Leveille (born August 10, 1990 in St. Catharines, Ontario) is a Canadian NCAA ice hockey player from St. Catharines, Ontario. He was drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the first round, 29th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, becoming the first player in NHL history to be drafted out of a Jr. B level league in the first round. He is currently a junior at Michigan State University, which plays in the CCHA.
After playing 'AAA' hockey for the St. Catharines Minor Hockey Association all his childhood, Leveille was drafted by the Ottawa 67's in the 9th round of the 2006 OHL Priority Draft. However, Daultan decided to play close to home, and played two years for the St. Catharines Falcons of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League, a Jr. B level league part of the Ontario Hockey Association. During his two seasons with the Falcons, Leveille totaled 48 goals and 101 points in 93 games. In his final year, Leveille, along with six other individuals, was awarded the OHA Top Prospect Award. During his second year, Leveille began to be highly scouted among National Hockey League (NHL) teams, and was selected as high as 27th overall in mock drafts for the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. During his final year Leveille also played with Riley Sheahan, who would be drafted 21st overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Leveille finished his freshman season with the Spartans with 17 points in 38 games. He finished second on the team in goals and points, behind senior Matt Schepke. However, Leveille finished the season with a plus/minus of -19, and the Spartans finished with a disappointing 10–23–5 record. Leveille had 25 points the following season.
