Mallet, 20, recorded 81 points and added 132 penalty minutes in 68 games last season with the Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. In three seasons with the Oceanic, Mallet has registered 110 points and 272 penalty minutes in 154 games.

In the 2012 QMJHL playoffs, he had 25 points in 21 games to help the seventh-seeded Oceanic to the President Cup finals.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
