Round 5: Pick #136 (Samuel Noreau, D)

Player: Samuel Noreau

POSITION: DEFENSEMAN
SHOOTS: RIGHT
HEIGHT: 6' 4"
WEIGHT: 206
BORN: JANUARY 31, 1993
BORN IN: MONTREAL, QC, CAN
DRAFTED: NYR (5TH ROUND / 136TH OVERALL)

Stats:

2010-2011 Baie Comeau QMJHL 67 5G 5A 10P 141PIM

Notable Reports:

(Bruins Draft Watch)

Noreau is a 6-5, 215-pound tough-as-nails punisher who doesn't have much in the way of high-end skill, but has the size and nastiness to be a shutdown guy in time. He's not a bad skater, though needs to work on his lateral movement and pivots/turns like many big players on D. This dude can really fight, too. With his size and strength, he ragdolls guys and stands in and throws them against the tougher comers/enforcers in the Q. (Noreau is #8 in the red and white)

He gets very little notice on a poor team, but stay-at-home guys with legitimate toughness are always in demand on NHL teams' bottom pairing, and Noreau is someone who, with the right amount of patience and developmental time in the minors, could evolve into a functional 6th/7th in time.

I know relatively little about this guy other than I've seen him fight a few times and he can REALLY throw them.

In a few years we can send out a line of prust, mcnaught, mcilrath, and this guy to teach some lessons and raise hell on ice. I guess Zuccarello will be the 5th guy on that shift?

Would've rather had a Euro, but i'll admit I didn't bother reading up TOO much on the guys who were expected to go around here. Impressive tools, nasty dude.

I like picks like this. It's 5th round, you take chances. By the time this kid's 22, every player in the organization will be working with that power skating lady. I feel like big, tough defensemen are always ridiculed as plodders and goons on draft day, until they've played 3-4 yrs in the league and are UFA's. THen people can't wait to open up the check books for them on July first and overpay them by about 2 Million bucks a season. May as well pick that guy late and get him on the ELC for a few years. If he doesnt make it, no big deal.

Ha!! Was thinking the same....and he may well end up the same.

But (and I hate to sound like a broken record) I've got more faith in our scouting since he who must not be named was drafted.

...or until he shows up in a playoff series for us and knocks some one on their arse. So true. So very true.

Kid needs to work on his mobility, there were some great players on the board when we made this pick, would have rathered if we went for another home run swing at forward.

Just watched his interview with Cerny. Looks like a great kid, I'm already a fan.
