The QMJHL Entry Draft on Saturday, June 3rd in Saint John is quickly approaching with your Halifax Mooseheads holding the fourth overall pick. Additionally the team has the 22nd and 40th overall selections giving the Mooseheads a trio of picks in the top 50.
With that in mind HalifaxMooseheads.ca is taking a look at some of the top prospects available.
The right-handed shooting Jeremy Jacques is one of the best defencemen available in the 2017 QMJHL Entry Draft. He features excellent size, skating and offensive abilities. Already standing 6-foot-2 and weighing 180 pounds at the age of 15, Jacques appears more than ready to step into the lineup on a QMJHL team. He uses his long reach to his advantage and scouts are excited about his powerful skating technique. Jacques missed time due to a pair of injuries in 2016-17 but managed to score four goals and nine assists in 36 regular season games. The native of Cap-Sante, QC likes to carry the puck up the ice while he also is able to make sharp, accurate passes. Central Scouting has him ranked 11th overall.
