Scouting report

Do you remember where you were in December 2011? Jonathan Drouin was still playing Midget AAA hockey so it's safe to say the last year and a half have been nothing short of a whirlwind for the former #2 pick in the 2011 QMJHL Draft. Since breaking into the league, all Drouin has done is throw up a ridiculous 1.63 PPG average with 86 assists in only 82 regular season games.

With no shortage of competition, Drouin is the best playmaking forward in this draft as his ability to control pace and read the ice are unmatched in this draft class. Despite being slightly undersized, Drouin shows a remarkable ability to elude checks and absorb contact well when he doesn't. While we have Drouin at #4 on our board, the team that lands Drouin on draft day will be getting a premier talent who is fully capable of being interchangable with those in front of him.
