Fantasy Summary

Late-round pick who has seemed to have been worth the flyer to this point. A steady defender who doesn’t have a true standout skill.

Observations

January 2019 – Guénette has had a decent season and has shown growth since the start of the year. His coach in Val d’Or has noted his improvements, especially at the offensive end of the ice. He came into the year looking to improve and has done just that. His skating and passing ability have been on display for most of the year, despite the muted production on a bad team. Guénette’s production should go up if he is surrounded by talent by next season whether that be with the Val d’Or Foreurs or another team within the QMJHL. His situation in the Quebec league should be monitored because the talent is there but he hasn’t been given much to work with this year. Tony Ferrari

November 2019 – The seventh-round pick from last June’s draft has been solid with a struggling Val d’Or Foreurs team this year. He has been talked about when it comes to naming players for Team Canada’s World Junior Camp invites and has put together a solid season of production. He has a decent shot from the point and plays a smart defensive game. He can make good first passes and he skates well enough to make his way through junior hockey but may need to improve as he advances through the Senators’ system. Overall, the lottery ticket of a seventh-round pick seems to have been well worth it to this point with the Senators possibly having found a diamond in the rough in the late stages of the 2019 Draft. Tony Ferrari
