I am excited about this addition. He has good size (listed as 6'0, 210 pounds on the QMJHL site) and is a left handed shot, a minority among Laurier forwards. His QMJHL production was very promising (28 points in 35 games) and he won the scoring title in the MHL with 88 points (the next highest scorer on his team had 44). He will definitely slot right into Laurier's top 6, and will likely see first unit power play time.

Overall, this has been one of the strongest classes I have seen since I started following Laurier hockey, and definitely the strongest I have seen up front.

However, with 7 forwards coming in that I know of, and 14 on last years' roster with only 1 graduating forward, I am assuming that a somewhat sizable contingent of forwards may be departing the program early, as has been the case in the past 3-4 years. I am hoping most of the core forwards return, but I really do not know. Due to the turnover, Laurier seems to have recurring high number recruiting classes and a large portion of their team made up of first year players.
