RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Gaunce was the Canucks’ first-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. At 6-2, 215, Gaunce is a hulking center that provides plenty of physicality while also possessing his fair share of skills. He already sports a booming shot, solid face-off abilities and the defensive wherewithal to one day be a decent third-line center, but Gaunce needs to do a lot of work on his skating to reach his full potential. The 18-year old center will need some seasoning in the minors, but he should eventually carve out a lengthy NHL career.
