I've seen Paquette play this year and I will see him again next year and will be able to provide updates for you guys.
A quick scouting report about him would say he plays a bit like Patrice Bergeron. He is big and strong on the puck, responsible in all three zones, has good skating abilities and is very smart on the ice.
Also scored more than 30 goals as a rookie in the Q. A favourite of mine and I knew he was gonna ge drafted even if he is at his 2nd year of eligibility.
I second this.
I would also add that he kinda gets under your skin.
Then again, I'm a Gatineau Olympiques' fan. lol
Good way to close day two with Gusev. Hopefully Stevie can convince him and Kucherov to come over together. I think Yzerman got some solid players in the draft but obviously we won't know for sure until a few years from now. Looking forward to seeing these guys develop.
While Vasilenski said he still has two years remaining on his contract with Ufa back in Russia, Murray said Vasilenski is exploring the possibility of coming over to North America next season to play major junior hockey. Vasilenski attended the Memorial Cup last month and has been working out in Ottawa since, according to Murray.
When asked about the situation, Vasilenski, through an interpreter, said, "I have two years left on my contract, but I can't say for sure right now if I will be there the next two years. I'm not sure of all the nuances of the deal, and we'll have to figure it out later. The only thing I can tell you for sure is that I want to play in the NHL.''
