Evan Bouchard's Player Profile

NHL Central Scouting: "A highly intelligent defenseman with exceptional vision and offensive instincts. He reads the play very well and his passing ability allows him to be a constant threat in his team’s transition game. He’s one of the top offensive defensemen in the Canadian Hockey League and magician-like when quarterbacking the power play."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - April 30: "Big (6-2, 193), strong, skilled right-shot defensemen are a rare commodity, and Bouchard dominated at each end of the ice this season."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - April 30: "Bouchard tied for seventh in the OHL with 87 points (25 goals, 62 assists), the first defenseman to finish among the top 10 scorers in the OHL since Windsor's Ryan Ellis (Nashville Predators) was tied for fourth with 101 points in 2010-11."

Craig Button - TSN - April 28: "You won't get a lot of flash and dash but he's smart, efficient, competitive and makes the game look easy."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - April 28: "He thinks the game well well, shoots the puck a ton, and is as strong as an ox, which will allow him to log big minutes down the road."

Steve Kournianos - SportingNews/The Draft Analys - April 28: "Bouchard, who this season was the OHL's top-scoring defenseman and carried London's gutted roster for almost three quarters of the season. He is a one-man breakout with a howitzer for a shot, plus he has the size (6'2, 190) and reach to make up for foot speed that appears average at best."

Cam Robinson - DobberProspects - April 26: "A strong puck-moving defender who took on all the tough minutes on a depleted Knights’ squad. Runs the power play with precision, uses his big shot with impunity and finds a way onto the scoresheet most nights."
