    Doubled his goal total from the previous season to this one, yet he seemed to still leave a lot of points on the table. The issue maybe as follows...

    If corrected, we should see much more of this next season...

    He's got potential but his skill set is still very raw.

    Kinda reminds me of Tangradi at the same age (except without that playoff breakout Eric had).

    I think Austin may just break out next year like Eric (60-70 points seems realistic). However, like you pointed out, this only happens if he uses his size more.

    Can't believe he made Hlinka over a guy like McNeill. That was a joke.

    He really played really well when they had him on Bathgate's wing. I think he needs a good center with him to be effective.

    I like what I've seen from him, which is limited, but still. Raw, but lots of potential here. And you can't teach size.

    As mentioned, Brassard has good size and the raw tools to be an effective power forward type. He hasn't put it all together yet but he very well could break out this upcoming season, making whoever takes him in the 2nd-4th round a very happy team.

    In the games against Kingston, he rated from non-existent to average. In the games when he was average, he was actually using his size along the boards, but he didn't display the top-end skill that made me take notice. In the games when he was non-existent, he was neither physical nor showed any offensive prowess.

    I've learned never to write a player off in junior from one season to the next, especially when we're talking about 16 or 17 year olds. But I haven't seen anything -- in limited viewings, mind you. I'm basing this on Kingston/Belleville games -- that would indicate he's got Tangradi-like ability (someone mentioned that earlier, I believe).

    He's got the size and enough raw ability for an NHL team to take a chance on him with maybe a 3rd or 4th round pick, but I'm not sure he's shown enough thus far to be picked any earlier than that.

    One's from Windsor and the other is a French-Canadian from Hull, Quebec so I think it's safe to say they're not related.
