Observations:

 

June 2016- The cousin of Lightning 2012 fourth rounder Cedric Paquette, Christopher was drafted by the same team in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. Paquette is a speedster who didn’t produce much with the Niagara Ice Dogs. Paquette has strong defensive instincts, but needs to play a more agressive and physical game to succeed in a bottom six NHL role. Paquette needs to add on more mass to compete at the professional level.

 

Fantasy Analysis: D+

 

Considered a two-way forward, but mainly focuses on his play in his own zone. Work needs to be done with his offensive positioning.
