Where would Reid Boucher go if he re-entered the draft?
Reid Boucher was drafted in the 4th round and is looking like a true diamond in the rough. He was just signed to his ELC, but if he wasn't signed, he'd re-enter the draft. Where do you all think he'd go if he re-entered?
Leads OHL in goals.
62 total goals (beat STEVEN STAMKOS' club record of 58).
Top 5 in points.
Was voted best natural goal-scorer in all of OHL.

Im not really a fan of Boucher regardless of stats so all this talk about diamond in the rough is just pure nonsense. His value is spot on but im betting that his career is nothing more than a 3rd liner
There's a thread speculating where Boucher would go in the 2012 draft on the second page, now we have one for 2013? Second or third round, he's still not big or fast. Phenomenal shot but it's a stacked draft and now he's two years older than most of the kids getting drafted. Ask Matt Foy if 60 goals in the OHL at 19 is a guarantee for success in the NHL. Foy had Locke but Boucher has Sarault, a damn good OHLer. Boucher is still a good prospect but speculating how he would do in a draft two years later is futile, he's 19, he should be doing better than 17 year olds.
Probably late 2nd/Early 3rd, he's two years older than all the 1st year players and while he obviously has a wicket shot, he's still undersized and not particularly fast. Comparing he what he did at 19 to what Stamkos did at 17 is pointless.
