National Hockey League Draft Profile Emile Poirier
22 (22 overall)
Notes: Mid-season rankings - 43; Final rankings - 39
2012-13 - Gatineau (QMJHL) - 65 gp, 32 G, 38 A, 70 Pts, 101 PIM
Assets: Is quick to get into openings and can finish with aplomb. Also competes very well and can be a leader by example on the ice. Has already shown a tendency to come up big when it matters. Flaws: Doesn't have ideal NHL size, so he will need to get a lot stronger to maximize his pro prospects. Also, he's only an average skater and lacks top-end speed for the wing position. Career Potential: Solid scoring winger with upside.
