Grégoire is from my hometown, and I've been following him for a few years now, dating from the days he was in Bantam AA.
Grégoire was one of the youngest players of this draft with Barkov and Mackinnon. He's a two-way Center that plays a tough, physical game. He has to work on his skating, but he gets around alright. The olympic ice in Chicoutimi didn't really help his case.
He's a guy who is built for the playoffs. He went on a tear in the post-season and scored half of what he did during the whole year.
He's a warrior that will do anything to win(block shots, win faceoffs, drop the gloves).
He was originally a top5 pick in the 'Q draft in 2011, so the potential is certainly there.
I think he could make it as a 3rd/4th liner in the NHL.
How would you compare him to other projected bottom 6 centers in our system like Vail or Bournival?
