I'd say Grégoire is a lot tougher than the two others, even though Bournival and Vail are not softies, Grégoire can really be mean.
I know he's not afraid to drop the gloves, but I'm not quite sure yet if moving on to the pros he'll still be as aggressive physically of if he'll settle down because he won't be able to backup his play. That's probably the only question mark I have as far as his type of game goes, because for the rest, he's a gamer.
As pointed out, he'll have to work on his explosion on skates, but that's not too worrisome. He's definitely the worst of the three in that department though, Bournival being the faster skater.
Grégoire comes from a family of hockey players (his father played in the LNAH for Sherbrooke and his grand-father coached the Faucons de Sherbrooke in the 'Q).
This sounds amazing for a 6th rounder! This draft is a slow burner but the more I'm reading the more I'm thinking this draft has a chance at rivalling last years picks (after Galchenyuk). Pumped!
