QMJHL Entry Draft Prospect Profiles


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 23rd and 41st overall selections giving the Mooseheads a trio of picks in the top 50.

With that in mind is taking a look at some of the top prospects available.

Justin Barron of the Halifax McDonald’s is the top ranked defenceman in the draft with Central Scouting listing him at number six overall. He’s the latest in a long line of highly ranked Maritime defencemen which of course included last year’s top blueliner Jared McIsaac. Barron, 6-foot-1 and 179 pounds, is an offensively gifted player with great hockey intelligence. He produced 25 points in 38 games played for the Macs and did it as one of the youngest players in the league. The 15-year-old has a November, 2001 birthdate meaning he is not NHL draft eligible until 2020. Barron makes very good decisions with the puck and is an effortless skater. He collected a pair of assists for Nova Scotia at the Gatorade Challenge.
