RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Gaudreau is perhaps the top prospect remaining in the Flames' organization, but he will return to Boston College for his junior season after registering 51 points in 35 games in 2012-13. His star is on the rise after a sensational 2013 World Junior Championship where he led the tournament -- and his age group -- in goals.
Gaudreau seemed like just another small, fourth-round draft pick (2011) out of the USHL. That is, until he finished second in team scoring (Boston College) last year, one point behind the sexy Chris Kreider. Fast forward to the 2013 World Junior Championship and everyone knows his name. He was named to the tournament's all-star squad while representing the gold-medal winning US squad and his seven goals led the tournament. His combination of speed, skill and tenacity (and size) smack of Marty St. Louis. He has first-line upside, but is a few years away.
