Laurent Dauphin

Trying to gauge his potential but have only seen a Youtube video on him.

Anybody ever watch him live? What are the chances of him someday being a full time NHLer? Who is comparable to? And finally, if you had to guess, what kind of stats would you expect from him if he is to make the NHL?

Thank you!

Laurent Dauphin can do everything. He doesn't stop and is a very hard worker. He's a smooth skater,very agile,with great hands. Strong puck skills. Very quick release with decent accuracy. He's creative and his vision is exceptional .Speed and versatility are his biggest strengths. Hs offensive game is high and while his defensive game isn't bad , it could be worked on. He's not the biggest kid and will need to fill out before making the jump to pro but he has a couple of years to do so. Could also improve in the circle , although he wasn't bad for a 17 year old rookie. He'll tell you himself he'll have to bring more physically as well.

I say there's a %70 chance he makes it as an NHL regular. I see top-6 upside and I'm not sure he'd be effective in a bottom6 role. 25 goal , 50 points projection. He draws some comparison to Matthew Lombardi.

Expect him to have a big year in Chicoutimi.

He didn't have a horrible season but didn't take a big step forward either. You could call it a sophomore slump. He played for a weak Chicoutimi squad and didn't have a great supporting cast. He did improve in the circle which was a concern last season. Still needs to get stronger and bring it up a notch physically.

I saw him live about 3-4 times last year. Kind of shocked he slumped this year. I will say he seemed to be REALLY tiny but really fast as well. Your assessment of him for his rookie year seems perfectly in step with what I saw of him live. The Sags seem to be a weak squad as well.
