Manix Landry continues to be on a roll. He now has a point in 7 straight games (12 points) and is a +6. He also continues to flash a complete, 200 foot game and unmatched work ethic. He might not have quite the offensive ceiling as a few others in this class, but it’s hard to find a more complete player than him right now in this league.

Speaking of point streaks, Riley Kidney is currently on his own 5 game point streak and has 12 points in last 7 games. Like Landry, Kidney might not have a huge offensive ceiling but showcases a good all-round game. He’s solid defensively and is very good in the faceoff dot.

Jacob Melanson has had a good start to his QMJHL career. He has 7 points in first 8 games and shows good offensive instincts though his skating still needs work (not enough knee bend, average speed).

Lastly, Robert Orr might not get as much attention as his other draft eligible teammates (L’Heureux, Whynot) but I guarantee he will get drafted by some NHL team. Why? He has good size & speed and is one of the youngest players in this draft (Sept. 1 birthday). He’s still a bit raw, but there is upside for sure with him once he fills out & gains confidence.
