McCauley, Duffy, Fournier, Quailer. All options to be in the ECHL depending on how they adjust/play.

He does seem to have decent lower body strength, not as easy to knock off the puck from what i've been watching.



Hudon is nothing like Cammy, very different players. Hudon always seems to keep his feet moving, good passer and very smart with the puck.
Fair enough on Hudon overall as a player, but some of his most effective moves, in particular his quick move from the half-boards into the middle and accompanying quick release, usually short side, sure reminds me of Cammy. Next to his one-knee one-timer it was Cammy's best pure NHL-level move. And Hudon's gooood at it.

I wouldn't buy it either, unless of course the Habs get smoked with massive injuries or Andrighetto has some kind of rookie season. But to say he will likely be a healthy scratch, I don't agree as I would fully expect him to be a regular. Avtsin had no exposure to the North American game and never adjusted, I wouldn't compare the two even if they end up having a similar result in the end since Andrighetto has been playing in North America for 2 years and didn't go to the AHL at 19 (not a fan of 19 year olds in the AHL).

I wouldn't say really excited, yes he was passed over in 2 drafts, the first year he was playing in the Swiss 2nd league and then last year he went undrafted despite what looks like a solid rookie debut in the Q with 74 points in 62 games. What I like is that despite the lack of height, he seems to have decent lower body and a good mix of offensive skils (like his one-timer) plus he did have a good WJC's and QMJHL playoffs (from what i've read as I didn't see him in the playoffs, have been re-watching the wjc games though)

If Andrighetto was picked over Nystrom last year for our final pick, I know I certainly would have been very excited after the season he just had. Should be very interesting to see how he adjusts to the AHL.

I would be surprised to see him in the ECHL, the Dogs are starved for offense and he looks like at the least he should help with the PP. Granted we'll need to see how he adjusts first.

I've seen Andrighetto use a really good one-timer, perhaps he fits the mold of Cammy better (although I like his passing game from the little i've seen and I never cared for Cammy's passing game)

From Rouyn, seen him play alot. He comes from Tourigny school: work, then work more.

Offensive dynamo, fan favorite. Looking forward to see his adjustment to AHL level of play.

Very good to hear about the work ethic. If he's that hard a worker, the Cammy comparison instantly goes out the window.

Guys with his size and skill are almost always effective if they don't mind engaging physically and getting their nose dirty.

Sven Andrighetto is close to Nikita Kucherov.

Tourigny coach said this.

http://tvasports.ca/hockey/lhjmq/tou...-pari-13042013

«Kucherov est l’un des meilleurs joueurs de calibre junior au monde, un choix de deuxième ronde du Lightning de Tampa Bay, et Andrighetto a montré qu’il n’est pas loin de lui. Quand je dis “pas loin”, c’est peut-être pas loin en avant», a-t-il mentionné, convaincu qu’Andrighetto sera repêché dans deux mois.

"Kucherov is one of the best junior players in the world, a second round draft choice of the Tampabay Lightning, and Andrighetto has shown that he's not too far from him. And when I say 'not far', it might be 'not far ahead'." (Thank you Overlords)

Kucherov was awesome, Andrighetto I think, at least against junior players, equivalent. Harder worker IMO. He did fair well at the world juniors.

Anyway, total bias here, from Rouyn. Soooo happy he was drafted by the habs, my son moreso.

From Rouyn too. Kucherov isn't a very good hockey player. He's a prototypical Russian, all skill, no will. When he wants, he is a dominating player, he has more skills than Andrighetto. However, I doubt he will ever have a long NHL career the way he takes shifts and nights off and only plays offense.

Sven Andrighetto.

At WJC-20 :

Nail Yakupov (Russian) ---> 7 games, 3 goals, 5 assists, 8 points.
Nikita Kucherov (Russian) ---> 7 games, 5 goals, 3 assists, 8 points.
Sven Andrighetto (Swiss) ---> 6 games, 5 goals, 3 assists, 8 points.

Sven Andrighetto is a underrated prospect, this kid can play.

Maybe in the future.. Galchenyuk - Andrighetto..

Andrighetto looks like a total 3rd round steal for now. Pretty good depth if one of our more skilled, smaller players go down.

Ton of bust potential. Talented but needs work. Temper your expectations.

Can you really be a "bust" if you are drafted in the 3rd Round of your 3rd Draft? He has a lot of talent, but even if he doesn't pan out it's not the biggest disappointment in the world.

He seems to be a late bloomer so hopefully he continues to ride the momentum and then becomes a big name player for the Montreal Canadiens. I guess you never know, if he has the work ethic, it might just fall into place for him.

Whenever you don't make it, you are a bust.

It's a little bust, but a bust none the same.

Heu.. Yes. Avtsyn was the flavor of the week after the draft probably more than Andrighetto and he is condidered a bust!

On the contrary, I think he is a relatively safe pick. Being 2 years older takes some of the projection out of drafting a player. You draft a kid after his 17 year old(or 18 year old, for late birthdays) season and hope he develops enough to be worth a contract 2 years down the road. I'm sure when they looked at Andrighetto one of the first questions was, can he play AHL next year. By taking him 3rd round I'd say the answer is yes.

The day after the 2001 draft, specialists were saying that the "small" Tomas Plekanec, picked by Montreal during the 3rd round, had great potential.

The selection of Sven Andrighetto looks like that one to me. Talented smallish players often get undrafted or picked far in the draft because of their size.

And FYI, "busts" are usualy tall and big players that have "raw talent" with "potential"... like McCarron, Cory Urquhart, David Fischer, etc. If a player has acceleration, speed, grit and a nose for the net, he'll get to the NHL faster than any guy who can't skate.

Feels like I'm watching Cammalleri when he was in junior. We should be so lucky with a 3rd rounder. At least the lack of pressure should take the burden off and help him develop into the player he can become.

As usual I agree with you. Andre Tourigny was quoted as saying 'Ghetto can play top 6 or on a third line because he has the competitiveness and backchecking willingness that are required.

Because of this, and because of his style, I wouldn't be surprised if, assuming he doesn't crack the top 6, he ends up being a Perezhogin type 3rd liner who chips in offensively, has a little grit and is a great possession player. Recall Perezhogin was quite useful on that line with Bonk and Johnson before he bailed for Russia.

Thanks, great clip. The kid is an absolutely pure goal scorer. No wasted movements or hesitation at all. He will direct the puck on net in the fastest and most efficient way possible. That is always the sign of a pure scorer. And he has huge nerve speed.
