Jeremie Poirier's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "Toolsy defender with above-average skating and elite puck skills. Transitions extremely well with his feet, but can skate (and pass) himself into trouble at times. Swims around in the high-risk, high-reward waters."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "An offensive defenseman with good puck skills, hockey sense and game-breaking ability who led QMJHL defensemen with 20 goals in 64 games."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 6th: "An offensive defenseman with good puck skills, hockey sense and game-breaking ability who ranks first among QMJHL"

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Mar. 4th: "A wild horse who’s at his best when he’s free to roam. There’s still plenty of work to be done in his own end."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Feb. 5th: "An offensive defenseman with good puck skills, hockey sense and game-breaking ability who ranks first among QMJHL"

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Feb. 5th: "Could be a Tyson Barrie-type defenceman who might be better suited to play wing in the long run."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Jan. 29th: "He is smooth on his skates, working his way around the ice in a rover role at times. His passing is crisp and he has a deceptively hard shot from distance. His defensive zone play is questionable at times."

Brock Otten - McKeen's Hockey - Jan. 21st: "While some question Poirier’s ability to defend, few question his ability to generate offense from the back-end. He is a high level skater who can create in transition, or while running the point on the powerplay."

Andy Lehoux - Future Considerations - Jan. 16th: "Poirier is a skilled and talented puck-rushing defenseman who can dominate in the offensive end using his elite puck skills, excellent offensive instincts and great creativity ... Poirier’s flashy dekes and impressive end to end rushes catches the attention of many, but not to be dismissed is his ability to create scoring chances all around the attacking zone."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "He’s got the offensive side of his game in tune. More attention to detail in his own zone is recommended."

Will Scouch - Scouching.ca - Nov. 19th: "In terms of raw talent, he's the #2 defender available, but his team works poorly as a unit and he's often a major part of that. Holding onto pucks too long, not engaging defensively, skating into 1 on 3s, and ignoring clear looks to linemates makes everything but offensive production look less than ideal on paper."

Larry Fisher - The Hockey Writers - Nov. 19th: "If the draft were held tomorrow, he’d be a first-rounder and he does have first-round talent. I’m not sold on Poirier’s upside, but I gave him a bit of a bump up for November."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "Smooth skating defenseman who has developed his defensive game over the last year. Developing into a solid two-way defender."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "He’s effortless with the puck, he’s a crisp three-zone passer, he can run a power play, he’s calm under pressure, he’s aggressive when the play calls for it, he can play in transition, he’s strong, he’s athletic and he can escape pressure with his feet in the defensive zone."

Chris Peters -ESPN - Oct. 22nd: "There are a lot of questions about his ability to defend at a consistent level, and he's a bit of a volume shooter, but he sure has the puck on his stick a lot."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "He can try to do too much at times, and there are scouts concerned about whether he’s a bit too free-wheeling and not refined enough, but there’s no doubting the upside in his game."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Very good skater who has great confidence with the puck. Poised under pressure and can maneuver himself into advantageous positions in the offensive zone to create scoring chances."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "A toolsy defender with above-average skating and puck skills. Transitions well with his feet, but can skate (and pass) himself into trouble at times."
