Yesterday, the Nashville Predators officially came to terms with Felix Girard on a three-year entry level contract. The Quebec native was drafted by the Preds in the 2013 NHL Draft in the fourth round (ninty-fifth overall).
The 19-year old center just finished his playing time in the QMJHL with Baie-Comeau Drakkar. In four seasons he played in 240 games, scored 142 points (45 goals, 97 assists), amassed 288 penalty minutes, and has a plus/minus rating of +31. In his last two junior seasons he won the Guy Carbonneau Trophy as the QMJHL’s top defensive forward.
In the press release there is no mention of him reporting to Milwaukee. Should I see otherwise, when attending practices today and tomorrow, I will provide an update.
Is this another element to next season’s Admirals group? What do you expect from Felix Girard in the Predators system?
