    Joseph Veleno—F—Lions Du LSL 0’00/000 03 04 06 10

    I went to watch this kid because i heard he was amazing and I came away super impressed and actually shocked a bit....this kid is in his 1st year bantam and is dominating the league like it is his play ground, to me he is the next big prospect coming up...

    he just thinks the game 3 steps ahead of everyone, he has great skating now, amazing playmaking and passing, controls the play like a pro, he has a great release now with pin point accuracy, he went end to end when ever he wanted to but he is so explosive to watch on the ice, this kid is just amazing.

    and this is why i like giving the heads up on players, so people can go see them when they are young, and if they turn out people can say i saw this guy at 13 or 14.

    I saw him last year at 12 okay, in peewee AA.

    This kid had no business there. He should of played Bantam AA, and when he was called up for bantam BB he was their best player.

    At espoir practices at 12 years old their coach was saying that he could of olayed it as he was better then 4 of their players.

    Even at midget AAA practices at 12 he was keeping up.

    This year, I've seen him at midget AAA practices, he looks good out there, he will be surclassed next year.

    Saw him play last year aswell.. So dominant. My brothers team was playing against him at the time and he was absolutely lights out. I tried looking him up at the time but found nothing.

    Very good to hear. I can't wait to hear more about Joseph Veleno. Is he better than the other big 2000 born Matthais Emilio-Pettersson? Also just throwing this out there but how does he compare to Sidney Crosby or Connor Mcdavid at the same age?

    I know a lot of people and coaches even from the Pee Wee tournament think Veleno is the best in the world.....personally I have not seen Petterson play yet just the videos but until he proves himself against tougher competition ill be a skeptic he could be the real deal or just a kid dominating a weak league....Veleno is dominating a strong league and has been dominating tournaments with high profile players in it. Veleno is not Crosby....as for McDavid time will tell on that, still early in the year, we will see.

    It'll be interesting to see if the kid lives up to the hype through age 15 to see if QMJHL gives the kid exceptional status.

    If I'm not mistaken you also saw Mackinnon at the same age when you first posted about him for the very first time. What are your comparisons to Nate Mac?!

    I personally see him on the level of Mackinnon......at the same age Mackinnon was a better skater (not that anything wrong with Veleno but Mackinnon is a rare skater for explosive speed) Veleno is a fast skater, Veleno is a better puck handler than Mackinnon was when at full speed, vision and passing IMO about the same and shooting about the same, Veleno at this moment is not the two way player Mackinnon was nor as gritty but his hockey sense is a bit better.

    Coulda been a mod.

    I simply posted Adam Dawes name in a thread and someone made it into it's own thread, posted a picture, and created their own title. It threw me off big time when I first saw it because I couldn't figure out when the hell I did all that :laugh: turns out I didn't

    We're now talking about players that where born in the same year I graduated high school, yeah I feel old. That said it'll be interesting to see how he develops and if he lives up to the hype.

    Not to get too far ahead but there is a 2001 with Conquérants PW AAA right now who is just killing it. He is a 4 points/game player right now in a league where nobody else is above 2,00 points/game. Should definitely be playing Bantam AA like Veleno should have last year.

    Wonder why Hockey Québec is so conservative with surclassing very top prospects. Veleno should have played Bantam last year, that Conquérants player should be in Bantam this year and how the hell is Mathieu Charlebois not playing Midget AAA as we speak? Perhaps the best 1999 D in the world right now and already 6'2" 190 pounds...

    scares me though when i look back at the players hockey quebec rushed and none really turned out...Philippe Venne, Romy Elayoubie, Guillaume Latendresse, Jean-Philippe Paquet, Phillipe Forcier, Felix Lauzon, Nicolas Petry-Gingras....the later two guys are still onlly 15 so a lot can still happen with them but more was expected of them so far. Charlebois imo should have been in midget this year though, he is way beyond bantam.

    Lol yeah. seen that way, might as well not rush them. Justin Guénette was also rushed to Midget at 14...

    At least, it looks like J. Roy and probably N. Roy too will be escaping that curse.

    Agreed on Charlebois though.

    Could you tell us who this 2001 born player is and at 4 pts a game in pee wee AAA at age 12 is sick. Have any of you guys ever seen a player dominate like that at such a young age. I know when Crosby was 12 he had 200+ pts in 70 games in pee wee.

    Only half of the Conquérants' game are accounted in their player's individual stats but he is right around 4,00 point/game at the ten game mark. The five game for which we have Conquérants players stats only account for half of the goals they scored in 9 games. http://www.lheq.ca/fr/stats/2013-20...-wee-aaa-ouest/page/classement-joueurs/5:3896

    Not sure why the league's Website has individual stats for every team's full slate of games but some in which Conquérants played.
