Observations

May 2020 – The undersized forward was consistently one of the most productive forwards on this year’s NTDP U18 team. He was an offensive catalyst for his line whenever he was on the ice and he understood where to put the puck in order for his teammates to take advantage of that creativity. Berard has excellent vision in the offensive zone and his agility and elusive edgework allow for him to dodge through traffic as he works his way around the offensive zone. The young American will need to work on rounding out his 200-foot game and get stronger but will have ample time to do so when he attends Providence in the NCAA in 2021-22. Berard is a bit of a project player who has upside as a top-six producer who can be a menace on the powerplay in a variety of roles. The road may be a bit longer than other prospects who will be drafted in the same range but the upside is intriguing. Tony Ferrari
