Fantasy Summary

An undersized late bloomer with strong skating ability, decent vision and competitiveness, and a quick, snappy shot. The question is whether his competitiveness and NHL bloodlines will be enough to overcome his small stature at the pro level.


Observations

October 2022 – Guay made the most of his opportunities during his 2021-22 season, where he ranked second in the QMJHL in goals (55) and fifth in points (104) before going on to lead the “Q” in playoff scoring during Charlottetown’s run to the finals. All of it was enough to finally earn the offensively-minded forward a draft selection in his third year of eligibility, being taken by Vegas in the fifth round of the 2022 draft. As an overager, time will tell if his eye-popping stats during his final year of juniors were an accurate indication of his growth and future ceiling. He signed on to a two-year deal with the Knight’s AHL affiliate this summer, over the course of which the son of former NHLer François Guay will hope to show early signs of following in his father’s footsteps.
