Jeremie Poirier's Player Profile

Brayden Olaf - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 30th: "His concoction of confidence, high-end puck skill, edgework, and decent overall skating ability make the Sea Dogs defenseman a potentially game-breaking player."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 21st: "From the offensive zone blue line in, he can create in more ways than most forwards. He’s got a better shot and more one-on-one skill. But he also takes more risks to create those chances, his game lacks defensive detail, his decision-making is often suspect and he can fade in and out of games without the puck."

Chris Peters - ESPN - June 30th: "There is little debate that Poirier is among the most skilled defensemen in this draft. His hands, in particular, are elite. But there are questions in terms of how he defends, his effort level and general hockey sense."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - June 25th: "As of right now, there are concerns about defending or a willingness to work on it. Then again, when you’re as gifted offensively as Poirier with great skating ability, who would want to defend?"

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - June 23rd: "A high-end offensive defenseman with good puck skills, hockey sense and game-breaking ability, he led QMJHL defensemen with 20 goals and 261 shots on goal, and was second with 53 points in 64 games."

Justin Hadded - The Hockey Writers - May 22nd: "He oozes with offensive upside from the blue line, but his defensive play needs to be almost completely reworked."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Apr. 8th: "Hitting the 20-goal mark for any defenceman is impressive. Poirier possesses sick hands, a big shot, and can skate like the wind."

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."Brayden Olaf - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 30th: "His concoction of confidence, high-end puck skill, edgework, and decent overall skating ability make the Sea Dogs defenseman a potentially game-breaking player."
