Drafted from: Saint John, QMJHL

About:  NHL Central Scouting’s Chris Bordeleau

"I think for a potential pro player, he's got the size and mobility. I've seen him many games, and he never seems to make a bad play. He's never going to get 100 points, but definitely, when you want a guy to play defense, he's your guy. He does it all, he'll block shots and he moves the puck at the right time."
