Observations

June 2019 – Turcotte has been drafted fifth overall by the Kings.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2019 – Turcotte was officially measured at 5-foot-11.25 and 186 pounds at the NHL Draft Combine.  Jokke Nevalainen

April 2019 – Turcotte has continued his stellar draft-eligible campaign. He completed the USHL portion of his NTDP season as the league leader in points-per-game (2.14) by recording 12 goals and 34 points in just 16 contests. The bullish, two-way centre has been spectacular offensively despite playing away from uber-prospect, Jack Hughes at even-strength. With the value NHL organizations are placing on pivots, Turcotte likely won’t have to wait long to hear his name called on draft day. Cam Robinson

February 2019 – After missing several months to begin his draft-eligible campaign, Turcotte is back healthy and producing at a high rate. Turcotte posted near-historic numbers with the U17 team a season ago before transitioning to the U18 team down the stretch. The Wisconsin commit blends exceptional defensive play with high-end speed and skill. Has played second fiddle to Jack Hughes for years, but is beginning to step out of his shadow. A coaches dream. Cam Robinson
