Can some body let me know some info about Kelly Bent and/or Jean-Simon Deslauriers.
speed? ability? type of player?
J-S Deslauriers was drafted to be the offensive catalyst on the CB blueline... his numbers aren't yet there and obviously he wasn't happy in CB. He hasn't been playing hockey for 2 months now tho, he "Quit hockey".
At 17 he's a player with a load of potential, but he's gonna have trouble getting back up to speed, obviously the kid has some baggage too if he'll just bail on his team a month into the season.. but that can probably be blamed on an agent or advice he's getting from outside sources.
Honestly the way CB was run to start the year its hard to blame him for jumping off that boat...
As for Kelly Bent the kid has 21 career games and 5 fights in those 21 games. No points... I wouldn't be expecting a lot of high octane offense out of Bent but he's tough and seems hungry to make a name for himself, dropping the gloves with opponents older than he is. Reminds me a bit of how Sawyer Hannay started out.
