Julien Gauthier's Player Profile

Damien Cox of Sportsnet - January 13, 2016 - "Didnít hurt his draft status at WJC, but didnít help it. He'll be challenged to keep up his goal-scoring pace with the Foreurs."

Curtis Joe of Elite Prospects - 2016 - "An explosive power forward who boasts an elite-level skill package. Takes nothing for granted and plays with hard-nosed work ethic. Tremendous vision and outstanding hockey sense; thrives under pressure and doesn't stray from the high-percentage play. Willingness to play physical and win battles in his own end makes him a vital asset, stepping up at the game's key moments."

Mike Morreale of NHL.com December 24, 2015 - "The 6-3, 225-pound power forward is the only player on Canada's roster eligible for the 2016 draft. He leads Val-d'Or in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with 29 goals and eight power-play goals. He also has 37 points and a plus-17 rating in 30 games. "He can skate and hit and finds ways to get open and shoot the puck," NHL Central Scouting's Troy Dumville said. "He has better playmaking skills then his eight assists indicate, and plays both ends of the ice.""

Future Considerations - November 2015 - "He is a big, strong winger with a powerful stride and impressive top speed. He is tough to contain when he is at the top of his game. Consistency has been an issue in the past but he remains an enormous prospect with many impressive pro traits, such as a rocket of a shot and terrific vision in traffic. Can be creative with the puck and set up his teammates with well-timed passes; is a beast along the wall and in the corners."
