Xavier Bourgault's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - July 12th: "His skating and speed are standout qualities and he showed a knack for finding the soft spots in defensive coverages to create scoring chances for himself and his teammates."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - July 12th: "Bourgault is a dynamic offensive player who is relentless in his puck pursuit."

Josh Bell of FC Hockey - July 8th: "Bourgault is a highly-dynamic offensive player with impressive intelligence. Heís an above-average skater with excellent positioning and awareness."

Andy Lehoux of FC Hockey - July 8th: "He enjoys expressing his imagination with brilliant dekes and flashy moves, yet his play flows in harmony with the offence through his simplicity"

Brayden Olafson - Dobber Prospects - July 7th: "His blend of technical and cognitive strengths result in a player who consistently creates synergy among his linemates and he is capable of elevating his play to exceed and overcome the style of his opponents."

Scott Wheeler - The Atheletic - June 22nd: "Bourgaultís game doesnít leap off the ice at you but heís dangerous in a variety of ways, with a deceptive release that comes off of his blade early in his shooting motion and stance to surprise goalies (off of either foot or from awkward postures, too) and good playmaking instincts inside the offensive zone."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "A exceptional stickhandler with buttery-soft hands and a quick-strike mentality, Bourgault has to be in the running for the flashiest wingers available in the draft. "

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - May 12th: "An excellent finisher who works best in the offensive zone. An underrated playmaker, too."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Apr. 23rd: "Bourgault is a dynamic offensive player who is relentless in his puck pursuit."

Brayden Olafson - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 8: "Although the Shawinigan forward is highly capable of transitioning the puck himself and thinking on his feet to evade congestion, his uniqueness comes in the form of regularly being one of the most reliable and productive pass outlets in the offensive zone."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 22nd: "He shows some very nice transition ability both offensively and defensively. He uses short passes and the boards to get around neutral zone defenders when heís carrying the puck offensively to get the puck up ice."
