2021 NHL Draft Class
William Trudeau is now the points leader among QMJHL defencemen after a 4 point effort on Friday. He’s not real flashy but kinda does everything well. He’s got good size, speed, vision, moves the puck well & is very solid in his own zone. Not sure if he’s really elite at anything yet but seems to be very steady. Definitely an intriguing defender to keep an eye on.
Justin Robidas is the son of former NHL’er Stephane Robidas, and plays a lot like his dad did. He’s undersized but doesn’t play like it. He has a tremendous work ethic and has a high hockey IQ. He’s also lighting quick & has a dynamic shot & release. High energy player who brings it every shift. He’s at a minimum Top 5 prospect out of this league – guaranteed. Think Seth Jarvis stylistically.
Joshua Roy continues to shoot (4.6 shots per game) and score goals. He’s got 6 in 8 games tied for 1st among draft eligibles. The former 1st overall pick from 2019 couldn’t be more different stylistically than the 2nd overall pick (Robidas), but has the size & skill teams covet. As mentioned previously, his skating & play away from the puck will ultimately determine his fate come next June.
Cole Huckins still leads draft eligibles in points and could for awhile. Acadie-Bathurst looks to be one of the Top scoring teams in the QMJHL this season.
