The story with Duclair isn't only that he has stepped up offensively, it's also that he became a leader.

This kid was suspended by his team just a year ago. He had red flags about his attitude and commitment to get better.

On Friday, his last shift on the ice is a good example of the new Anthony Duclair. Quebec was up 3-0 and there were only 30 seconds left. He blocked two hard slap shots by throwing himself in front of the shooter. It's the kind of things you don't see on stats sheets and it's the kind of things scouts don't see because they're already gone.

Look today, he could have scored his 50th goal in the empty net but he chose to pass to a teammate who was in a 7 games goal drought. He did the same for another teammate a few weeks ago.

He has things to improve. He tends to drag his feet. He's not always in movement. He must improve his decision making. However, I think he has proved this season that he knows his weaknesses.
