Cameron Askew

Drummondville draft this guy in the first round at the draft.

So, it's an american and we don't kown that much about him.

Some personn know what kind of player he is?
Is he talented? Compare to other player in the draft?
Does Drummond did a good choice to draft him?
He is big, but did he use is shape?

Thanks.

Cameron is a very good player. One of the better Americans available in the draft.

He moves well for a big guy, good hands and vision.

I think Drummondville made a very good pick....especially if he said he would report.

I haven't watched him play live myself but have talked to a few people about him. Someone that follows Cushing Academy told me he oozes potential. He has exceptional vision and good hands. He's a good skater and likes to play the perimeter. He's a playmaker and very unselfish but contributes with goals as well. Great attitude and very teachable. Coaches love him. Rumours about attitude problems aren't true. He also compared him to Sean Couturier and says he'll be an impact player this upcoming season. Top 5 talent in this draft, some could argue top 3.

I think Drummondville made a very good pick....especially if he said he would report.

In the local newspaper, he said that he will report next season. He said, that for him, it's was the best way and the shortest way to go in the NHL.

What about is attitude? Some says that he had some because he change school in the year, that it's true?

And finally, what can we expect from him? I know, a 16 yrs old don't lead a team, usually, but, if how much point he could do? At 16 yrs old, does he have the skill to play on the first 2 line?

I ask this question, because I just want to have a better idea of him.

For a big guy, does he use is frame like playing a physical game?
And finally, if you have do compare the style of Askew, at witch player would you compare him?

Sorry if some of my question are not so clear, I don't have the opportunity to write/spoke in english in my city of Drummondville!!!

From everything I have read/heard I would expect him to be on the top 1 or 2 lines next season for the Volts.

He will be a top 6 (maybe top 3) forward for Drummondville next season.

His offensive upside is tremendous. He will score some highlight reel goals this season.

He isn't a great skater, and that could end up being his downfall (as far as NHL upside). It will be interesting to see how he does in the Q, which is a much better skating league than the New England preps.

Keep us posted on how he looks in camp. I hope he plays well for you guys.

I'm sure he will work on the skating.

With Martin Raymond as head coach, I think Askew and the other young player will have a good teacher with them.

And I will give you some information when the camp will start in august.
