Part of his numbers dropping is the fact that he is a rookie in the QMJHL, unlike most draft eligibles. The lengthy schedule is an adjustment.
Yup. + nagging injuries. And if the goal is to discredit Gauthier's first round credentials through some bad box score scouting, allow me to play the game and use a player who went second overall in his draft and to whom Gauthier is frequently compared. In his draft year, Jordan Staal had a 1.00 ppg average. And that was his second full CHL season, not his first as in Gauthier's case...
