Prospect Report

There’s a good reason why the hashtag #DernièreForLafrenière is a thing in hockey’s social media circles: The kid can really play.

Rimouski Oceanic left winger Alexis Lafreniere is off to a torrid start in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this season, racking up 34 points in his first 13 games. It’s the type of offensive production that could put him in the running for a second consecutive CHL Player of the Year Award and lets the fans of lottery-bound NHL teams start to dream of better days.

Lafrenière is far from the only member of the 2020 draft class who is turning heads with a strong start. TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button takes a look at five prospects who are delivering on the hype and increasing their stock among scouts and NHL front offices:

Alexis Lafreniere, LW, Rimouski Oceanic (QMJHL)

2019-20 Stats: 13 GP, 10 G, 24 A, 34 PTS, 22 PIM
