What you saw in the playoffs was what he's capable of when other teams try to zero in on the "biggest threats", and how versatile he is by holding down 3rd line checking duties one shift, then contributing to the powerplay on the next. Got an injury to cover in the top 6? Don't worry, he's dependable enough to fill that role, too. Really, really hoping he's able to get a bit more jump in those feet.
Great/helpful info...thanks
(I've got to do more research...I thought Fournier was 20....and you're not Draft-eligible after 20 if I'm correct).

One Halifax Moosehead fan poster here recently compared Fournier to a taller Prust....

And...will be great to see Fucale and Fournier reunited with the Bulldogs one day.
