May 2018 – A fiercely competitive center whose league and post-season scoring totals have soared during his three campaigns with the WHL’s Lethbridge Hurricanes, Bellerive racked up 46 goals and as many assists in 70 games as team captain before adding 25 points in 16 outings as the Hurricanes reached the East Conference final. His PIMs have remained consistent, averaging more than one a game in league play and playoffs. A sturdy (5-10, 198), determined player with some speed, creativity, a lot of physicality and some leadership qualities, Bellerive will get a good look at Pittsburgh’s camp before being reassigned for more seasoning. Mark Allan
April 2017 – The stocky young forward totaled four goals and three assists in three games, including a hat trick against New Jersey Devils’ hopefuls at the 2017 Prospects Challenge in Buffalo. He also took part in Pittsburgh’s prospect development camp last July, followed by a three-year, entry-level contract six months later. As well as compiling a combined 92 points in his first two campaigns with the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL, including 27 goals in 2016-17, Bellerive notched seven goals and seven assists in 20 games during Lethbridge’s run to the 2017 WHL title. He also skated four times for Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament after previously being Team Canada-Red’s alternate captain at the 2015 Under-17 world championship. The second overall selection in the 2014 WHL bantam draft is having a third-year WHL breakout with 26 goals and 60 points in his first 43 outings as well as maintaining his WHL average of about a penalty minute per game. He does not hesitate to drop his mitts. Mark Allan
Fantasy Outlook: C-
Bellerive is known as a fiercely competitive player with speed, physicality and some creativity. While getting physically involved is an attribute, he might have to learn discipline. Still young, he could be a bottom-six pro forward.
