Drafted: 2011 by St. Louis, 162nd overall







October 2014 – Tesink will begin his pro career in the ECHL after inking a three-year entry-level contract with the Blues late last season. Eric Daoust


March, 2013 – Tesink is an energetic forward, who works as hard as anyone. He is an extremely effective forechecker, with a great second effort on plays. Tesink has excellent skating abilities, and is very strong on the puck. Tesink is never afraid to drop the gloves, and while his size is average, he makes up for it with grit, determination and solid two-way play. He’ll never be a stud offensively, however, he’ll always put forth his best effort. In terms of production, in Junior he was hovering around a point-per-game. When it comes to the pro game, I’m not sure how well his abilities will translate. Capable of eventually posting 40-50 points/season in the NHL. He fits into the third line, energy-type player role. – Ryan Booth


January 2013- New career highs have been set in goals and points for the St. Louis prospect. The hometown Sea Dog was shipped to Blainville-Boisbriand in a trade as his former team rebuilds. He will be a big part of the Armada’s run for a championship. –Derek LeBlanc


November 2012- The hard working right wing has already hit a career high in goals this season (14) and is working towards his best statistical season in the QMJHL. – Derek LeBlanc


October 2012- Tesink will have a much bigger role on the Sea Dogs compared to previous years and is having a very good start with eight points in five games. He’s currently tied for eighth in league scoring.


April, 2012- Tesink is a player who doesn’t get enough credit. He’s on stacked Saint John team that’s loaded with stars. Injuries held him to only 36 games this season, but he still managed to surpass last year’s points total. He’s a very competitive player that skates well and never stops forechecking. He will likely return to Saint John next year and be given a bigger offensive role.



Fantasy Outlook: D+

He isn’t ready for the NHL yet, and will likely play a season or two in the AHL. The Blues have a deep forward pool, and Tesink has a fairly steep hill to climb. Minimal offensive upside.
