There's our Goalie
Some very sub-par numbers last season.
Have you ever seen this guy play, Fel? Or anyone else here up in Quebec?
Rouyn is way too far.
It's pretty much in the middle of nowhere...
He doesn't turn 18 until later this year.
Wow. Dude is the Dan Cloutier of the Q. No thanks.
He's going to be the starter next year in Rouyn, I saw him play.
He was great that night, just needs time, he was highly touted out of midget. He has a chance, but really needs to play.
Let's see how ho progresses - he must have some skill.
dont look too much into his stats
he just started playing last year as the #2 goalie..things went well for him as time went on..team traded for a good #1 goalie but the guy ended up being injured to both knees
so belanger had to step up unexpectdly as the #1 goalie, he had a little bit of a rough time adjusting but as the season was ending he was looking better and better
in the playoffs we were #8 seeds and we beat #9 and #5 seeds and his play was great
he did look pretty confident and calm.. for a goalie of his age in his situation I really liked his play
when we played against Halifax he played just great and he gave us a chance to win games.. we arguably gave Halifax the best opposition in the whole playoffs
Pretty good value pick at #200.. good technique, good mental.. square goaltender you guys are getting there
Wow, thanks for the info. Sounds like an intriguing goalie prospect to keep an eye on.
He was also in QC Midget AAA last year... He's a long term guy, he's got upside though.
I heard he has a nice personality, and is friendly. What else do you want from a 7th round pick
Hey, just remember Haula and Groavac were 7th round picks. Another diamond in the rough?
Eh, I really like the way we've been taking these later round token goalies from a bunch of drafts. Goaltenders are such a trouble to predict that often mere quantity beats quality. You might or might not end up with a diamond in a rough once in a while.
Thanks for that.
Great to see someone from the area telling us who he is.
So at this point when the Wild draft a goalie can't we just give GMCF and Co some benefit of doubt? i mean its not like they haven't picked good goalie prospects before...
Again this is a solid pick, he's going to play a lot, and we'll say what he's got. He really needs to play, he didn't play often and that hurt his stock.
What's up with him ? I guess he's returning to the draft ?
According to this article from March 12th, he's still a Wild prospect.
Looking at his stats it looked like he never really improved. Makes sense to drop him.
it just didn't work out for him
