freakin awesome

it means he's not totally clueless to french. plus you always learn the swear words first if your friends are teaching you. but at least he was learning before he was drafted.

French is definitely his first language. Alas he has a particularily annoying france accent.

Nope, his accent is swiss. He's French, but he spent most of his childhood in Switzerland.

Really really happy with this pick. He was on my wishlist at #33, never thought he'd be there at #64.

This guy would look good beside Galchenyuk.

Interesting how he said he went to the CHL because he thought it would be better for him as far as gaining attention. And chose the WHL over the Q or other places because it was a physical league with big Ds and he wanted to best tested more. Someone in the Q should take notice of stuff like that. (when was the last time the Q ever produced any tough, physical Defensemen?)

If you examine his goals, most of them are because of a sneaky ability to enter the play as the trailer. He also has excellent body positioning around the net which allows him to adjust to passes in the slot and the crease. He gets off an accurate release in a hurry. Maybe not the best playmaker in the world, but he is a finisher and that is what he will do. Wow what a great pick in the early third round.

Loooove this pick. He transitioned quickly and well to WHL hockey last year, and has those NHL bloodlines. I'm kinda surprised he didn't go ~10 spots higher, honestly.

This is the one pick that keeps sticking out in my head for me. He really has an excellent release and he creeps into those scoring positions seemingly unnoticed. Those qualities make you a scorer at the pro level.

Our WHL scout Ryan Jankowski deserves some credit for this pick too I would imagine - Bozon said at the combine that Jankowski had shown tons of interest in him the whole season.

My guess the main reason why he fell is because it's hard for old school GM's and scouts to think France can produce a quality NHL forward.

pick a 6"0", grity 35 goals scorer in 3rd round of a weak is more than a chance. Nothing sure with him, but has the potential to become something solid

1st year on North American ice, almost pulling a 40-40? Will be interesting to follow him and see what he does in a offensive only role. (His coach said on RDS that he wasn't always on a offence-only line). Really intrigued to see how those numbers fluctuate since Guy Charron said he'll put him in a first plan offensive role this season

40-40 Would be a realistic expectation.

In 2011-12, Bozon led all Western Hockey League rookies in goals (36) and finished second in points with 71 (36-35--71) in 71 games.

Probably. Eventhough there was quite a bidding war for Stéphane Da Costa last year. Our national team is actually improving. But that's really recent, you're right.

He's not the fastest out there either, and is rather raw defensively.
That is what made him fall, even though to me he's a 2nd round talent.
