2022 NHL Draft: QMJHL players to watch

Antonin Verreault is an energetic forward who sees the ice well and recognizes opportunities that allow him to move the puck into quality offensive locations. He is slippery, makes sharp cuts and accelerates through the slightest of gaps that allow him to attack seams and generate chances off the rush or through in-zone play. His skating is impressive in transition, has pace with lots of agility, and he’s able to get up to full speed in just a few strides from a standing or in-motion start. At times it can look like he has the puck on a string. His hands are soft and quick and, when combined with his elusiveness, he becomes difficult to track. He has a good enough shot and can vary his release to be either quick or a bit delayed. Being a bit of a smaller player is where the concern comes in. He can be physically outmatched in battles. He’s catered his play to account for this so in puck protection he prefers to employ deception and rolling off of pressure rather than an outright shoulder-to-shoulder battle. Defensively, he is good in his own zone and constantly scans the ice and maintains position. He is effective at disrupting opponents with his stick and taking away their space, but he can have some difficulty defending against opponents who have well established puck possession. He will likely never become the strongest player on the ice, but if he can gain an ability to steer puck-carriers that might be enough to translate his game. At the next level, he looks like a puck distributor and mid-range shooter. He could provide an offensive spark or excel on the power play. This scenario really only makes sense if he is in a top-six role, so the test for Verreault will be his ability to make things happen when he gets his opportunity.
