Fantasy Summary

A well-rounded left-handed defenseman, who is an efficient puck mover.

November 2021 – A close second among QMJHL blueliners in points, goals, and assists this season, Cormier has ten goals and 15 assists in 20 contests, including nine points on the power play, ranks in the top ten with a plus/minus of +10, and sits in the top 15 with 18 PIM. Vegas’ third-round pick in 2020, the slightly undersized Charlottetown Islander at 5’10” 180 lbs. continues to look like a great bargain selection by VGK. We’ll see if his production continues as the 19-year-old’s career progresses, but his exceptionally smooth and speedy skating and deft puck skills offer a great deal of promise. Kevin Wickersham

October 2020 – Cormier was drafted 68th overall by the Golden Knights. Cormier is expected to spend two more years in the QMJHL before turning pro.  Jokke Nevalainen

October 2019 – Charlottetown Islanders left-handed defenseman Lukas Cormier is in a walking boot and will miss around a month of playing time, per Jason Malloy of The PEI Guardian. Cormier was off to a strong start before getting hurt. In 13 games played, the Sainte-Marie-de-Kent, New Brunswick native tallied four goals and eleven assists. Aside from his statistics, Cormier is an excellent skater. He shifts from backward to forwards well and deploys strong edges. Cormier loves getting involved in the offensive zone and fires strong wrist shots from the point. In the defensive and neutral zones, Cormier is seen often fighting for pucks. Unfortunately, he hurt himself as he was trying to block a shot. Hopefully, his injury does not deter Cormier from continuing to be aggressive in the defensive zone. In terms of fantasy upside, Cormier looks like he could round out into a solid top-four defenseman with top-two upside. Josh Tessler
