NHL.com on Danick Paquette

http://www.nhl.com/nhl/app/?service=...ticleid=362318

just a heads up. don't know much about him. saw his name thrown around a bit lately.

sounds like he's got a good head on his shoulders

Quote:
This season, he started “Danick’s Den,” giving four tickets to every Lewiston home game to area children and their families, who might not be able to otherwise afford the tickets.
gets some good accolades on the ice as well

Quote:
Paquette said he patterns his game after Ottawa power forward Chris Neil, “but I score more goals than him. … He can hit somebody, he can score; he’s dangerous in front of the net. He’s a good example for someone like me.”

Bordeleau said Paquette still needs to improve his skating, which reminded him of another recent prospect.

“He’s not the greatest of skaters, but we had (Brandon) Dubinsky … in his draft year he was a horrible skater,” said Bordeleau. “The kid worked his butt off, and when you play for the New York Rangers on a line with Jaromir Jagr, you can’t be too shabby. I think Paquette is that type of guy.”

The kid hits players from behind a couple of times a game. He has good instincts, but that is about it. His lack of respect for others is gonna get him seriously hurt some day.

Danick Paquette

Danick Paquette is a big kid who is a below average skater for major junior. He positions himself in front of the net and scores a few goals. He can fight a bit but is not in top shape physically.

In Midget AAA in a 36 game season he scored 4 EVEN STRENGTH goals.Midget AAA in Quebec is a game based on speed. In his second year in the QMJHL he scored 29 goals but had ONLY 13 assists,down from the 14 assists he had his first year. For someone who is viewed as a power forward the assists are a clear indication that he does not work the corners or the boards very well.

He does not have the skill set or skating to compete well against the elite players at his level.

Agreed with most things said here...gets tossed out of too many games/suspened too many times this year. He will be a fan favorite though and hopefully brings the Danick's Den everywhere he plays.

3rd round, he won't be another Lucic for a team with extra picks.
