Zachary won the Q defensive rookie of the year award and was presented before Game 1 against Moncton on Friday night.

He has continued on with his strong play with a 1.00 GAA as Halifax has taken a 2-0 series lead.

Was at the game last night and he was the main reason they won. Could have easily been 4-4 if not for at least 3 big saves by Fucale. I still can't believe he's 16 and plays with such poise.

Fucale possibly one of the best goalies I have watched in the QMJHL for his age!!!!

this guy for 2013 NHL draft is going to make a push to be a top 5 pick in the draft he is that good, he is so mature and poised in nets you would think you are watching a 19 year old goalie play, and his ability to track the play through traffic and understand plays happening is unmatched by a lot of goalies in the CHL right now, this guy just gets better and better every game and now in the playoffs he is raising his game up like not many can...this guy is great stopping the puck and is coming up with those unbelivable saves that wins games against tougher opponents for the team.........IMO he has argubly been a better rookie for the Mooseheads than Mackinnon, and im saying that is debatable but I can see people swaying either way with that top rookie for the team.

that save of him diving cross his crease and stopping it mid air with his paddle tonight was just amazing to watch...he had to adjust to the play so fast and he had to adjust even mid dive to make that save.

Have to agree with this.....Seen him 4 times this year and was very very impressed by him. He has all the tools so be elite and he's only 16.

Will he really climb that high let alone top 5?
2013 seems like the best draft since 2003.

Yea, tonight was one of his best performances yet. Looked like a vetern in nets while facing a playoff elimination game. Saved the 3-2 lead with a diving paddle save with 1 min left in the game! This guy should of gone #2 in the draft right behind Mackinnon

I could see top 10 for sure, maybe top 5 if a team want's a goalie like Price in 05

TBH Every time I've watched Halifax this season, MacKinnon has been sub par and Fucale steals the show.

I think 16 year old Fleury may have still been better though

Well it seems like goalies are becoming devalued more so in drafts now.
Also as i said i think 2013 will be an incredible draft and it'll be even harder for a goalie to move ahead of the so many elite forwards and some d-men too.

Ive watched him 7-8 times this year and he somehow managed to raise his game for the playoffs, bery impressed. I would take him top 10-15 in 2013. His lateral movement is just amazing. He can really stretch out too

i have to disagree with you here...Fucale imo had a better 16 year old season than MA Fleury....Fleury I actually knew personally, I have to say he was amazing so fast but even still scrambly in nets and bad rebound control....Fucale has better poise, better positioning and way better rebound control....imo the only thing Fleury beats him at is agility and speed in the net as not too many goalies have the agility and speed Fleury has...

i know top 5 in this draft is amazing

Mackinnon, Barkov, Shinkaurk, Jones, Monahan......I can see him going just behind them to 6th overall but if one of these players slip a bit next year, Fucale is that good.

He'll be a first rounder I think.

It should be pronounced almost like Fu-kaul right?

Can't think of a scenario where an e at the end of a name is pronounce "eee" except by americans.

I'll admit, I was only 12 when Fleury was 16

Fleury had to be scrambly in nets... The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles were awful and gave up 40 shots a game (no joke) when Fleury was 16. That team was a group of scrappers... including Fleury lol

That's way better than "Play Badly for Fucale"

He's 2013 eligible... There's so many can't miss prospects in that draft the rankings are probably going to be the toughest to predict
