Seventh Round - Maxime Legault RW

From Shawinigan Cataractes QMJHL. Another big kid, 6'2" 195, scored 28G in 63 games last season.

That's it folks!

Looks like Darcy has adapted to the rollback of the "new post-lockout NHL"... everybody 6'2" or better, and most of them like to punch face. This looks more like a Brian Burke or Bobby Clarke draft.

I wonder if the goalie has any fight vids out there? We've missed that element since Steve Shields.

Yes, I remember Biron-Emery, that's why I said Shields.

I don't know but he's regarded as a gritty, leader type. He'll probably wear the C for Shawinigan next year.

An overager- interesting- I have no idea about him TBH but I guess 1 more year in the Q and then depth for Portland?

Great pick by the Sabres. Love this kid's style of game. He is very complete, great PK guy, blocks shots, hits like a train, loves the physical aspect of the game, in a nutshell, a true warrior. He is also decent offensively, good foot speed, great wrist shot. The reason why he got drafted late, his injuries in the past, but everything is ok now. Really great pick. By the way, i am a Shawinigan Cats fan, his junior team. If you guys want to compare him to an NHL player, i would say a perfect copy of Cal Clutterbuck from the Minnesota Wild. Great pick for a 7th round.

Thanks for this!

Loving this draft, hope to love it more 5 years from now.

Just passing by to tell you guys you drafted a real warrior with Max. He's the kind of guy that will give his all every shift, every game. I know him personally and you won't find a more dedicated and passionate player out there. While not the most talented, he has a scorer's touch and is extremely clutch out there when it counts.

He had his fair share of injuries, but always bounced back. I remember a game where he got most of his front teeth knocked by a stick, left the game to get his mouth fixed a little, and came back to score the winning goal. I think he got a hat-trick in that game as well.

I was wishing the Habs would get him in the 6th or 7th, but I'm happy he got picked by the Sabres, he deserves everything that's happening right now. You guys got a really solid player and leader in Legault. He'll go to war for your team even if it means putting his body on the line, and that to the fullest extent.

Very true story about him, actually it was game 5, against the Quebec Remparts, where he scored two beautiful goals, one was a PK goal, where he outworked and outspeeded Leafs prospect Mikael Stefanovitch on a puck chase, then on a break away and went top shelf, bottle popped, with a back hand shot.

Kevin Devine referred to Maxime "as a missle out there". Another character player, certainly.

Absolutely, he is the "north-south" type of player, goes to the dirty areas and works out the opposition.

I didn't realize he was that old. I assume they'll take a look at him in camp with an eye towards signing him to play in Portland next season.
