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.
Mathieu Bizier is one of three players from the Levis Commandeurs ranked in the first round. QMJHL Central Scouting has him at #14 on their list. Scouts describe Bizier as a hard worker who compliments skilled linemates well although it’s noted that he will need to improve his skating to be successful at the next level. His vision and hand-eye coordination are also considered key assets to his game. The 5-foot-11, 165 pound Bizier played centre on both the second and third lines and produced eight goals and 17 assists in 39 games played. He added three goals and three assists for Quebec Blue at the Gatorade Frost Excellence Challenge.
