D Olivier Huot - Victoriaville Tigres, QMJHL (2016 Draft)
Victoriaville just took this guy in the first round, 20th overall in the qmjhl draft. Stands tall at 6'5" 250 pounds (). Anyone know much about him? Is he 2016 eligible or is he older? Just a massive, massive guy.
Rarely seen a happier guy getting drafted lol! Kid was bigger than everybody on the podium, big smile on his face, basically ran to the podium once he heard his name called. Compares to Diaby by looks of things. Big shot, plays good defense, will have to adapt to a much higher level of competition.
The guy didn't even make one of the worst Midget AAA team in Québec. Let's calm down, there's chances he never even get drafted.
This says more about how poorly the Gatineau midget AAA franchise is being managed than anything else. Not pne scout thought he did not have his place on that team and he progressed really well his year. That being said, it is definitely a stretch to call him an NHL prospect at this point.
