Observations

March 2019 – Gendron Has signed an AHL contract for the 2019-2020 season. For the remainder of this season, he will report to the Brampton Beast of the ECHL. Jordan Deshane

 

March 2019 – Gendron just completed his last game with the University of Connecticut. The season overall fell short of what would be hoped for on offence from the Senior. It remains to be seen whether he will be signed by the Senators. If he is, he will most assuredly need to continue refining his game in either Brampton of the ECHL or Belleville of the AHL. His speed will continue to be an asset that gets him noticed, however he should not be on your radar for fantasy at this time. Jordan Deshane

 

June 2017 – Gendron nearly doubled his offensive numbers from a year ago jumping from just six points to 11 in his Sophomore season. While that may not sound notable, the UConn Huskies were’t exactly the most offensively engaged d-corp with their highest scoring defenseman having just 13 points. Gendron’s four goals were the most from the back end but was shut out on the powerplay failing to register a point. He’s got an intriguing combination of size (6-03) and elite skating ability but still has a lot of work to do to get his game to where it needs to be which is understandable given that he is a converted forward. Brad Phillips

 

August 2016 – Gendron went through a bit of an adjustment this past season. As a freshman at the University of Connecticut, his role was much smaller that what he was used to and his offensive numbers reflected that. Skating in 27 contests, he managed just two goals on 19 shots and four assists while finishing with an even plus-minus. A converted forward with elite skating ability, Gendron has been playing defence for only a couple of years so he still has a long way to go to become an NHL player. Brad Phillips

June 2015 – Miles Gendron took big steps forward on the physical side of the puck this past season. He was slow in the BCHL to start adjusting to the league and trying to impose himself physically on players however as the season progressed he was able to work in the offensive ability that made him a 3rd round pick along with the physicality to make himself a well rounded minute munching d-man on the Penticton Vees who won the BCHL championship. In the regular season Gendron posted five goals along with 12 assists in 54 games to go along with 42 penalty minutes, which included a pair of fights. In the playoffs he added 11 assists in 22 games while only spending four minutes in the penalty box, in two national Jr A tournaments , Western Canada Cup and the RBC Cup, Gendron posted five assists in 10 games while posting only two minutes; Gendron led the RBC cup in time on ice. Benjamin Gallant

July 2014 – Gendron has committed to play at the University of Connecticut for the 2015-16 season, but will suit up for the Penticton Vees of the BCHL in 2014-15.  When the Massachusetts native originally began playing for Rivers Prep School in New England he was playing as a forward but after an injury to key defenseman Austin Rook, he was advised to move to defence by former Ottawa Senators and Rivers Head Coach Shawn McEachern.  Many scouts praise Gendron on his overall athleticism and ability to adapt in all situations.  Gendron is a natural skater who reacts quickly and appropriately when retrieving the puck out of his own third. He possesses good speed, great vision up ice and has loads of confidence carrying the puck.  Ideally you’d like to see him assert himself physically more often, but his style of game is certainly attractive to fantasy owners. Nathan Martin
