NHL Director of Central Scouting, E.J. McGuire
"Yann is a defenseman who, when he is on, can be one of the best defensemen in all the Quebec League and all of junior hockey. With continued development and maturity, as well as experience on when to dish the puck and when not to dish the puck, projects to be a solid defenseman. He needs to improve on a little bit of poise and calmness with the puck. He is good with the puck but sometimes gives it away too abruptly and it results in turnovers."
