Gallant, Zach, C

Shoots: L

Height: 6-02

Weight: 188

Born: 1999-03-06

Hometown: Oakville, Ont, Can

Drafted: 83rd overall in the third round of the 2017 draft

Observations:

February 2018 - Gallant continues to develop in his third season with the Peterborough Petes. He plays a solid defensive game, is good on face-offs and likes to lay the body. Gallant also continues to produce offence in a secondary role, as a strong fore-checker with above average puck skills and a good and accurate shot. Gallant is a strong skater with excellent acceleration, but needs to work on beating defenders and releasing his shot while on the rush. Gallant is a work in progress and is a potential bottom six forward in the NHL with some offensive upside. His fantasy value will be higher in deep leagues that count hits, PIMs and face-offs. Mark Hillier

 

July 2017 – With their third pick in round three of the draft the Red Wings selected one of the OHL's most improved players last season, Zack Gallant. In the 2015-2016 season Gallant managed just four points and no goals in 51 games whereas he tallied 47 points in 60 games last season. His offensive progression has been a nice compliment to his high level of intensity and his solid defensive game. He also has the ability to play a physical style and has strong face off skills. Gallant will most likely play a couple more seasons in the OHL before continuing his development in the AHL. He is far from a finished product but definitely has upside at the next level. Gallant has a very intriguing skill set and if his offensive game continues to develop then he could be a very well rounded player at the pro level. His potential is that of a top nine centre for Detroit in the future. Jameson Ewasiuk

Fantasy Outlook: C

Hardworking third line centre that is reliable defensively and can contribute with some offence.
