I play in a beer league now with a former qmjhl, junior a, and junior aaa(quebec) players and we were gonna call him to play with us for 2 games but we decided not too because we did not think he was strong enough......now he gets drafter to the nhl a few months later.

I have not seen him play for over a year but I really dont think he could make any qmjhl team.
Interesting insight, but this year it seems he was completely under the radar to begin with, and as the season progressed people took more interest in him.

He had better figures in the 'USHS' than 3 other D men drafted in the 4th and 5th round from high school, namely Segalla, Kivihalme and Sherman... so not completely off the radar with comparative production points wise.

Btw, you ever play against Jonathan Drouin, being from that neck of the woods?
