With its second sixth-round pick (171st overall), Nashville selected winger Tommy Veilleux from the Victoriaville Tigres of the QMJHL – the second player selected from Victoriaville. The 6-0, 187-pound winger posted 28 points (11g-17a) in his second season with the Tigres, and added three points (1g-2a) in eight President’s Cup Playoff games. Veilleux also hails from the same city (Levis, Quebec) as third-round pick Felix Girard. Veilleux is expected to return to Victoriaville for the 2013-14 season.

“He’s kind of an Andrew Shaw-type player,” Nolan said. “I think he has a little more offense to come as he develops here. He plays 100 percent all the time. He can skate. He’s a thick kid. He hits like Shaw, but a bigger body, so we’re looking for that gritty, speed, hard-to-play-against-type guy. He’s another guy we hope come playoff time he’ll be a third or fourth-line type guy that is hard to play against.”

Has two shifts up on YouTube that don't end in a fight, but each time wind up with him in the box. Said yesterday he plays like Tootoo. Needs to improve his skating to make any impact at next level.
