Simon Despres Player Profile

Despres is one of the top 2 defenseman coming out the QMJHL this year. Already has really good size at 6’4” and 215. Plays well at both ends of the ice, but despite his size, he doesn’t play the body as much as he should. Tough to beat one-on-one, plays good positional hockey. Struggled during the playoffs and Under 18s (possibly due to a hip injury) which might hurt his draft stock, but he should still go in the 15-25 range.
