Anthony Beauvillier of the Shawinigan Cataractes has four-point night, improves his draft stock

Anthony Beauvillier of the Cataractes de Shawinigan had himself quite the game in the outdoor game in St-Tite against the Tigres de Victoriaville. With a goal and two assists in the second period, he led his team to a 4-2 victory. He also assisted on the empty-net goal to clinch the win.

What’s really impressive is that he played in the Top Prospects game on Thursday, captaining the Don Cherry team, and then flew home Friday in time for the game.

He’s going to be drafted this June, and is currently ranked the 49th-best prospect for domestic skaters by NHL Central Scouting. With 32 goals and 70 points so far, that might seem a little low, but scouts are going to worry about his 5’10”, 181 lbs measurables.

One slot above him at #48 is Gabriel Gagné who plays for les Tigres. With 25 goals and 39 points, that may seem odd, he’s not as productive as Mr. Beauvillier, but he does have a 6’5″, 190 lbs frame. He scored a goal tonight, potting a rebound after blocking the goalie’s vision in front of the net.
