Team: Victoriaville Tigres (QMJHL)
Pro comparison: Keith Primeau
Draft range: second round, NHL.com = #36 N.A. skaters

Here’s another big power forward for the Colorado Avalanche to consider, Gabriel Gagne. He’s still on the upside of his development and has a fair amount of work ahead of him.

Gagne’s a willowy 6-foot-4, 183 pounds, but he should fill out and live up to his physical potential in the game. He’s been working on his skating and offense production. Indeed, he’s speedy and  doubled his offense from last year to this.

Gagne is going to take some time to develop. He has a tremendous amount of potential, the size and the work ethic that the Colorado Avalanche prize. The team might expend a second round pick on Gabriel Gagne.
