    Another 4 point night tonight. 8th in league scoring, 1st in defenceman scoring.

    I can't wait to see what he's going to do to the league next year.

    He's also 2nd in the OHL in Shots on Goal.
    That includes forwards.
    205 SOG in 47 Games.

    by the time final rankings are out he will be the 2nd best ranked dman in this draft

    the Pierre Luc Dubois of this draft is Evan Bouchard.

    I doubt he'll be a sleeper by the time the draft comes around. I expect him to be a 2nd/3rd round pick.

    He’s a more fluid skater than Pulock. Pulock I would say is/was more of a physical specimen than Bouchard

    Some players think the game at a high end level, this kid sees the game at a world class level.

    Since Robert Thomas and Cliff Pu were traded, his stat line is 7 GP, 1-10-11, +4, 36 SOG.

    Anyone have a future player projection they see in Bouchard? Also what you think he'll end up being in size/weight/whatever.

    I think he’s kinda similar to John Carlson.

    So given that he has won the past 2 OHL D of the month awards and he will contend for it again this month, I decided to look up which other CHLers have won D of the year before their first eligible draft. I only went back to 1992-93.

    OHL
    2016 Sergachev, drafted 9th overall
    2014 Ekblad, drafted 1st overall
    2009 Ellis, drafted 11th overall
    2008 Doughty, drafted 2nd overall
    1995 Berard, drafted 1st overall
    1993 Pronger, drafted 2nd overall

    QMJHL
    2016 Samuel Girard, drafted 47th overall
    2009 Kulikov, drafted 9th overall
    2008 Marc-Andre Bourdon, drafted 63rd overall

    WHL
    None.

    CHL D of the Year
    1993 Pronger, 2nd overall

    An excellent group of players and the only bust was spotted by scouts ahead of time and went in the third round.

    Well, yes, if we were to do a correlation chart on OHL PPG for defensemen, then I am sure there would be a positive correlation to pro hockey success. For example, a guy with 1PPG vs a guy with 0.2PPG will most likely see the guy with 1 PPG have more future success. However, when evaluating a number of defensemen all with high PPG as in this thread, and trying to determine who is better, we will actually have to use the eye test as well. As already mentioned in this thread, guys like Ryan Murphy and Ryan Ellis had high PPG in their draft year but neither is/was better than Drew Doughty.

    Love his game. If it were me drafting I'm taking him easily over Hughes who is ranked above him in most rankings.

    It is pretty safe to say he is in that Svechnikov/Zadina/Boqvist/Tkachuk tier.

    He's already in my top 5. I'm just simply blown away by the mind on this kid and IQ is something I give great importance to in evaluation.

    Detroit's Ken Holland and Kris Draper were at the Knights game tonight standing behind us. Bouchard would be right in their territory of draft spots.
