Observations

November 2018 – A former first overall selection of the Halifax Mooseheads in the QMJHL, Groulx plays a big game (100 PIM last season), but could still add some meat to his frame (6-2, 194 pounds). He is a feisty center, responsible in all three zones, and has a tremendous work ethic. He doesn’t have the offensive explosiveness of a first line center, but with his hockey sense, skating ability, and drive, he keeps working on his game and gets better every season. He has started this year with 12 goals and 25 points in 19 games and has gained more responsibilities as he dawns an ‘A’ on his sweater this season. The Ducks will give him time to develop so he will be on your NHL radar in 2020 and has the potential to be a second line center. Lucas Main
