    He's 100 % playing in the BCHL this year?

    There is some word that he could go to Halifax. Has to be tempting with the squad they are building but he forgoes his college eligibility. If he thinks he's good enough it could be worth a shot.

    Didn't really impress me at the U17 Camp. First viewing though.

    He's pretty damn talented and could force his way in. Parent, Zadina, Groulx, Newhook would be my guess at 4 of the top 6 of he makes it. Hischier isn't likely to be coming back.

    parent wont even crack top six
    even with hiscier not coming back ( i personally think he will)
    there is durandeau/fortier/sompi/ lavoie / and many more

    no way they are stacking lines 1& 2 with first and second year players

    hes not that talented

    He 100% is that talented. This is a kid who if he was eligible for the OHL draft would have easily been a top 10 pick and likely a top 3-5 pick depending on if he'd report. He was in my opinion the 3rd best player in his Q draft. Maybe he doesn't start the year in the top 6 at 16 but by the end of the year there's no doubt in my mind that he'd be a top 6 forward on that team.

    the top 5 picks in the Q draft this year would have been #1 any other year

    wrong and completely off base
    not in the 2016 draft and certainly not in 2015 Q draft

    I'm going to ignore Hischier because he won't be back.

    Fortier
    Groulx
    Zadina
    Moynihan
    Durandeau
    somppi
    parent
    Newhook
    lavoie
    Dachyshyn

    The top three lines I'd go into next year with including Newhook would be:

    Zadina - Groulx - Fortier
    Durandeau - Somppi - Moynihan
    Parent - Lavoie - Newhook

    That's at the start of the year but there is a lot of chances for people to shift around as the year goes along and given the fact that Parent is a centre could change things. I wouldn't be surprised if at some point during the year it shifts to:

    Zadina - Groulx - Fortier
    Newhook - Parent - Moynihan
    Durandeau - Somppi - Lavoie

    Tough to say but I wouldn't be surprised if Lavoie is the guy who gets bumped down in the lineup to the 4th line. Basing off my line combos above:

    Zadina - Hischier- Fortier
    Durandeau - Groulx - Moynihan
    Parent - Somppi - Newhook

    Zadina - Hischier- Fortier
    Parent/Newhook - Groulx- Moynihan
    Durandeau - Somppi - Newhook/Parent

    He's absolutely that talented. He only fell in the draft because he was comitted to NCAA. This years Q draft was one of the more stacked drafts I've ever seen. He could 100% play top six and I wouldn't even be surprised if he leads the team in goals.

    Zadina, Hischier and Somppi can't be in the same lineup.

    Didn't even think of that, you're right. Somppi would be the odd man out and Lavoie would slot in there.

    I watched this kid a lot on YSE this year. Patel was the kid I thought was gonna destroy at the beginning of the year. Ended up being Newhook.

    Seems to be off to a solid start in the BCHL , hard to tell based on his stats over the years if he's more of a goalscorer or a playmaker.

    over a point a game so far in BCHL at 16 years old, albeit in 14 games.

    Will be 17 in January. I've been following BCHL for 20 years, has not seen many players be a PPG at 16 years old. Must be pretty good, who has seen him play? Committed to Boston College for 2019-2020 season.
