Phillip Danault – LW – Victoriaville (QMJHL) – 6’0 – 170lbs – Shoots L – February 24, 1993
Danault is a guy that is going to end up wearing a letter in the NHL one day. He’s a youngster that brings
a solid work ethic to the rink on a nightly basis and is consistently praised for his passion. He captained
Victoriaville at a young age and didn’t take a shift off this year despite what the scoreboard said. He’s
one of those forwards whose physicality is on display nightly. He plays the game in the boards with little
care for his own well being. Great wheels, solid defensively, and has a low-risk projection for the NHL.
At worst, you’re looking at a two-way forward for the third line, but I think his offensive ceiling is higher
than that. This guy screams Shero when you watch him play, and he revealed during the combine that
his favorite team is the Penguins and his favorite player is Max Talbot.
