Cedrick Guindon is a quick-skating center who likes to fly around the ice with his speed while looking for opportunities to generate offense. He can keep the puck away from defenders with a talented set of hands and still set up teammates for scoring chances. There’s a lot of skill in his game that certainly gives him NHL potential, albeit more in a bottom-six type role. While a bit on the smaller side, he has time to fill out his frame and has not let it prevent him from becoming successful at the junior level. He could stand to improve on his consistency as when he flashes his energy and skill, he’s very noticeable and effective. On the flipside, there are lapses when he can disappear and fail to make an impact at either end of the ice. There’s a complete 200-foot forward with an aggressive streak in him at times and that type of compete level is something NHL teams strive to add to their organizations. Transitioning to the wing to help ease his defensive responsibilities and allow him to focus on creating with the puck on his stick is something that could help him as he gets older and plays against higher levels of competition. Given the tremendous amount of skill he possesses with the puck on his stick, he appears to be flying a bit under the radar in this draft class. He has the skill to potentially turn into a capable middle-six forward who chips in some offensive production on occasion and can play a bit of a shutdown role. He was a highly-touted midget player but the year off for the OHL gives him a limited track record. In the right situation, he could really flourish, but patience will be required when drafting him. He’s well worth a gamble could very much outperform his eventual draft position.
