I wonder if nobody drafted him because nobody wanted to pronounce that name. What happened, Marchessault was too easy promounce, so he decided to add another word in front of it? His last name is 15 letters long, not counting the dash, and it's pronounced the French way.
Anyway, his stats are terrific. He had over a point per game as an 18/19 year old and almost 100 points as a 19-20 year old. QMJHL is historically the softest league with the worst defense, so stats there are always inflated. Normally, I take off about 15-20% off from QMJHL when comparing them to OHL and WHL.
That still means he'd have probably scored ~80 points in the OHL/WHL.
Well worth signing the kid. Worst case, he'll still be a very good center in the AHL. Plus, his initials are JAM, so I assume he got mad jam.
