Pare could shape into an energy player and faceoff specialist who can contribute some complimentary offense now and then in the NHL, should he manage to make it.

June 2019 – Paré did not receive an entry level contract from the Bruins which means he re-enters the draft. Jokke Nevalainen
May 2019 – Paré managed 49 points in 68 regular season games for Rimouski, chipping in an additional five points through 13 playoff games. As a veteran player in the league on a powerhouse team, it would have been nice to see Paré produce more offensively. Regardless, he remained a solid two-way player and was one of the league’s best faceoff men, winning 61.5% of his draws. While the offensive upside might be limited, Paré might still be able to carve out an NHL future as a role playing forward. Chris Mazza
October 2018 – Paré will spend this season playing for Rimouski of the QMJHL. After spending parts of three seasons with Saint John, Paré was traded last May. During the team’s first five games of the current campaign, Paré has demonstrated his trademark abilities with a faceoff winning percentage of 61.4, but has also chipped in an impressive four assists. While it is a small sample size, this production should continue as the former sixth round pick plays for a strong Rimouski club. The team should be primed for a run at the Memorial Cup this season, which will bode well for the Bruins’ prospect as he attempts to develop his offensive game. Chris Mazza
February 2017 – Drafted in the sixth round, Pare has been labelled a project. His first season in the QMJHL he had an underwhelming 16 points in 64 games. His utility however seems to come away from the puck. A big body with reach and good vision, Cedric was primarily used in an energy role with Saint John last season and is very efficient in the faceoff department. In his draft year he was above 50% in the dot and has carried that over to the 2017/2018 season. The Bruins’ brass have said they are high on his energy and compete level, however they acknowledge his skating needs some work. He has the gift of size, and a projectable frame that will come handy in physical battles. This season Pare has doubled his offensive production, a decent improvement on a last place club. As his minutes increase his offensive numbers should only improve as he gains more exposure. Sid Osmond
