Moncton traded 6'7 237 lbs Defenceman Provencher(13th, 2012) to Shawinigan today in exchange for RW Zachery Whitlock (5th) .
Provencher was actually having a good camp in Moncton. He was much more mobile than I expected when we took him in the 13th round of this year's draft. He dosn't shy away from the physical game , which he obviously does well in that department. He could work a bit on his foot speed and his shooting ability isn't the best. However, he plays a stay at home style , reads the play well , clears the front of the net , wins corner battles and clears the zone good. He also made a few nice passes in scrimmages. I think he could have stuck around as a #7 guy if we were a mid-pack team. He's definately shown promise and will probably end up being a low-risk project player than may turn out to be a solid addition. I could se him being a solid #5 or #6 guy next season. What's the story on this Whitlock kid?
