C Antoine Morand - Acadie-Bathurst Titan, QMJHL (2017 Draft)

People are talking about Comtois on here as a top pick for 2017 but Morand is on that level too. He has 24 points now in 24 games as a 16 year old on a bad team, and is in the mould of a Drouin type player.

I can really see him making a push for top 5-10 in 2017, just insane skill.

I like him a lot. Just an outstanding skater with a great compete level. Tremendous skill but also a very tenacious forechecker. 5'9" and should grow a little more. Definitely looking like a first round pick.

For the record, Comtois and Morand played together for years as they are from the same area (Bantam AAA, Midget AAA, etc.).

Button definitely sees him as a potential first round pick : http://www.tsn.ca/get-to-know-them-p...-2017-1.389307

Morand was picked by Acadie-Bathurst over Comtois for a reason (at least by the club because Comtois is also exceptional), I am really enjoying his production there too. He's been getting better as the year's going along, and has reached ppg maybe if I am getting this right, he is one of two 1999 born players to be ppg at the moment in the CHL along with Comtois.

QMJHL says he's 5'9 at the moment, so hopefully he will grow a few inches over the next few years, and also since Bathurst has a good chance of missing the playoffs this year, Morand might be given a look at the u-18 team.

Bathurst has been improving quite a bit as the year goes on. I doubt they miss the playoffs since only two teams don't make it and Halifax is likely selling a bit this year. They will likely lose in the first round though so I think he would still be able to be considered for the team.

Him and Comtois carried their Bantam and Midget teams to provincial ships. That whole Grenadiers club is very well run and coached, they will start to churn out talent. It's probably one of the best in Quebec right now, maybe the best.

33 pts in 30 games at the break. If he grows a bit he'll most likely be a high pick next year.

Only reason Morand was drafted Higher is Comptois might be in the NHL at 18 or 19 and will miss WJC time etc and at junior level they are around same talent production Wise.

Morand smaller stature make him a future 2nd-3rd rounder while Max is top 3 prospect material

F Antoine Morand, Acadie-Bathurst Titan QMJHL (2017 Draft)

http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=275608


as Veleno has his own thread, why not the next pick?
second overall pick after Joseph Veleno in 2015 qmjhl draft
been watching him with Brisebois (Van's 3rd 2015)
he always came fairly impressed and quite fun kid to watch

has anyone been following him? opinions?

I think Comtois is the better of the 2 but I like Morand.

Put morand or comtois on st johns sea dog and you get about 20-30% better point production than what they are already producing now

Scary good potential

Morand was better than Comtois this season imo, but of course Comtois has size on him. Both are great prospects.

I see Morand as Drouin lite. Very talented.

I would take him late 1st in this draft.

Due to size and not putting up crazy numbers (although every time I see him he is a standout with his offensive skill), I would not be surprised to see him drop to the late 2nd or maybe even early 3rd.

60 points in 56 games but been on a hot streak his past 20 games :

29 points in his last 20 games (1,45 PPG). Wouldn't be surprised to see him rise in the rankings moving forward.
