Reid Boucher: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The OHL was all abuzz about Boucher after the center smashed Steven Stamkos' scoring record with the Sarnia Sting, notching 62 goals and 95 points one season ago. Nevertheless, there seems to be some concern regarding Boucher's size and his ability to be an NHL scorer. Expecting him to produce at his OHL pace in the NHL is silly, but he did put up five points in 11 AHL contests to end the first snippet of his professional career following Sarnia's exit from the OHL playoffs. The odds are slim that Boucher will make the Devils' roster out of training camp this season but he could see some limited action if he produces in the AHL or the Devils have injury issues. Regardless, Boucher is a keeper prospect worth remembering for the 2014-15 season.
A fourth-round pick by New Jersey in the 2011 draft, Boucher played most of last season with the OHL's Sarnia Sting, registering 28 goals and 50 points in 67 games. He played one contest in the AHL last year after signing an entry-level contract. Look for Boucher to hopefully turn some heads in Albany (AHL) this season, but he's worth remembering as player with offensive upside in New Jersey's organization.
A fourth-round pick by New Jersey in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Boucher will play in the Ontario Hockey League this season.
