Michael Bournival: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bournival, 21, completed his first professional season, scoring 10 goals with 20 assists in 69 games for Hamilton of the AHL after a nice four-year run as a junior. He's a two-way centerman who is versatile enough to play all the forward spots, is good on the faceoff and can play the shutdown role. The organization's long-term plans for him aren't clear, but he can be a capable forward when filling out the bottom two lines.
Bournival is entering his fourth season with his junior team, the Shawinigan Cataractes of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He's been the team's captain the past two years and is considered a leader on ice, if not the most skilled of players. Bournival plays a physical brand of hockey and does that for all 200 feet of ice, which the Canadiens love. At this point, he projects as a third-line forward, unless he develops as a skater with a better sense of attacking the defense.
Selected 71st overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the third round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Scored 62 points in 58 games for the Shawinigan Cataractes of the QMJHL last season. He is at least a couple of seasons away from landing in the NHL.
