Another player who the Habs got a good deal on considering he was ranked 75th overall by Top Shelf Prospects. Should start in the AHL next season as well, if he does well we might see a little time in the NHL for him next season although not likely.

Also, watch the videos, he has the potential of being an elite puck theif. He sees plays in advance and he has the skating/hands to match. Call me crazy, but this guy reminds me of Datsyuk. IF he can play against men, he'll turn out to be the steal of the entire draft.

Doesn't play like Datsyuk at all...

Although he's a bit on the short side, he's already close to 190 pounds, so that shows that he's well built. He reminds me of ex-Hab Mike Cammalleri, small, but stocky and well built. I think he could be a steal for us. Will be great to see him in Hamilton next year.

To those who have watched him more carefully, how does he compare to another undersized Swede, Damien Brunner?

Speaking to a few Q scouts he compares to a Cammalleri of sorts, I've heard tremendous things about the Swiss sensation, needs to just adapt his game to the North-South style but his work ethic and skill are astounding.

One Scout went out of his way to say that the only true flaw in his game is that he isn't 6foot++

Another gem that Timmins was wise to take, I can't express how happy I am to have McCarron, Reway, Andri and Leks, awesome haul

Would be pretty amazing if he lights up the AHL right off the bat like the Lightning undersized players like Conacher/Johnsson did in their rookie year.

Here is a full report I made on Andrighetto. I live now near Rouyn-Noranda so I got the chance to watch him play live multiples time.

Offense: Wizard with the puck. Change direction really quickly which create scoring chances. Andrighetto is speedy (not extremely fast but over average) but is major strenght is that he can make plays at full speed - eternal motor. His one timer slapper is just deadly (accurate and hard - Stamkos/Ovi lite) which is his major weapon. Need to improve the accuracy of his wrister (really decent wrister anyway)

Defence: Strong overall play and good positionnal play. Hard working. Always one of the first to backcheck. Create many turnovers with his eternal motor and good positionnal play. Real complete player. Was part of the first unit on the penality kill.

Grit and toughness: Andrighetto is a small player who play big. Doesn't shy away from contact althought he doesn't often initiate them (sometimes he does). Really hard to pry the puck away when he have possession.

Need to improve:
Accuracy and power (not so much) of his wrister
Speed (he is fast and quick but if he can put another gear... hell yeah)

Wow, thanks man. Appreciate it when people who really saw him play live come here and post a great and nice report.

I'm not an expert, but I've seen him more than a handful of times. His offensive game could be compared to Cammalleri's but he's definitely not as scared of contact as Cammy is.

He's also about a million times better defensively already.

For the accuracy, does he have the Galchenyuk syndrome of always picking the highlight reel top corner shot then going high or is it really an accuracy problem?

He is a very quick skater and he's got good hands and a good slapper that he uses a lot on the powerplay.

He thinks the game well and he works hard unlike a player like Kucherov who play lazy or too fancy sometimes.

He's a bit small and might not make it against the pro in the NHL but he's for sure a solid 3rd round pick and a steal past the 5th round this year

So what was the knock on him last year ? Seems like a steal of a pick.

I think its Timmins who said he wasnt strong enough last year, he apparently added some serious strength to his frame, what made the difference..

Any video interviews of him following him being drafted by the Habs?

I really liked his skill set and didn't think the Habs would pick him so I'm happy! Hopefully his size doesn't stop him from being a solid NHL player.

This pick seems amazing. 5'10 isn't that small at all. 180 is very good for that height. And he can skate? And he works his tail off? And he has tons of skill? And he put up huge points? This could turn out to be a dynamite pick? Looks like both he and Reway could be the Gallagher/Dietz/Hudon type picks of this draft. Love it!!!!

There is one video up on RDS in their video section I think. Nothing much to see. Said his goal was Hamilton for September.

Hamilton would be great. I'm dying to see how he adapts playing against men.

Hamilton's going to be awesome to follow next year, and even more so if Sven ends up playing there (I think he will).

I guess we all would like to think everyone could be the next Gallagher.

Envious of the Habs draft and this guy in particular. After watching him dismantle Roy's Remparts in the playoffs, he was someone I was holding out the Sabres would land with their rash of mid-round picks. Sadly, it was not to be. I think he's a gamer and has too much skill and drive to not succeed.

Awesome, thanks!

I love the 2 towers you guys got on defence. Going to be hell to pay crossing the Sabres blueline for the next decade and a half.
