Daniel Audette:

Montreal Canadiens prospect Daniel Audette has been named to the QMJHL roster for the tournament, Audette is a smaller stature forward who uses his deceptive speed and hands to beat his opponents.

“His bloodlines and elusiveness put the undersized Audette on scout’s radar because of his skill,speed and heart. His skating base, and lower body strength make him strong on the puck and a guy who plays big and is a scoring threat at a moment’s notice. Reads the ice and can handle the puck at his top gear, but also he can go laterally with sharp cuts and stop/starts to get loose. His vision allows him to slip away and act on the room he has made for himself, as he passes the puck extremely well and also works hard in his own end back checking. Looks like a good long term selection who may help a team down the road. “ – Draft year scouting report from Bill Placzek

Audette has only got better this season, he continues to use his very strong passing ability and vision to succeed, Audette has continue to work on his defensive game where he works hard to maintain good positioning to not allow his man to beat him.
