I'm never a fan of drafting goalies in the first two rounds (just not necessary - very good goalies can be drafted later) but at 36 Fucale is quite a steal. To say nothing of the fact that if we let a hometown kid with his pedigree slip away at number 36 you can be damn well sure we'd hear about it for years to come.
I was yelling at the TV when he was available with the first 2nd round pick, I think my Wife thought I had a stroke when he was passed on. Needless to say I'm very happy. Hopefully he continues his development and we see him in the NHL in 4 - 6 years.
The French Canadian rule: Read about it, go to bed smarter.
Wow, fantastic TSN interview by this kid, great personality and head is screwed on right.
Thing that sticks out the most from the prospect page:
In 2011-12, he was selected as Halifax’s Top Rookie, Academic Player of the Year and co-MVP (alongside fellow prospect Nathan McKinnon) as well as named the Fans’ Choice. With 32 wins in his first year, he also was named to the QMJHL All-Rookie Team.
