Daniel Walcott is a thin defenseman who put up good numbers last season in the QMJHL.
The 5'11", 168-pounder scored 10 goals and had 29 assists for the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada last year.
The 20-year-old will likely do an overage year in juniors before jumping pro.
He needs to gain weight—badly. At 168 pounds, he will simply not survive in the pros, let alone the AHL. At least 30 pounds are needed.
If he puts on weight and keeps his skating ability, Walcott could be a steal.
Look for him in three or four years, hopefully with some more meat on his bones.
