Daniel Audette, C
Hometown: Buffalo, NY
Drafted: 5th round 2014 (147th overall)
May 2015 – Audette is a skilled, quick-skating forward with a ton of skill with the puck along with an undersized frame. In particular, his 99 assists over the last two years playing for Sherbrooke of the QMJHL show that he has immense playmaking ability. He has improved his points-per-game output in each year since arriving in Sherbrooke which is a good sign. With that said Audette’s future hinges on his ability to overcome his lack of size in the professional ranks while also improving his strength and defensive play. He will not get that opportunity for another year after wrapping up his junior career in 2015-16. The risk factor combined with several years of development ahead hurts Audette’s stock as a prospect.

Fantasy Outlook: C-
Audette is a very talented prospect with his lack of size and wait time being major concerns from a fantasy standpoint.
