Weight: 180 lbs
Last Team: Quebec Remparts (QMJHL)
Central Scouting Report: A skilled forward with excellent skating ability... his top-end speed and mobility backs off defenders... sees the ice well and has the ability to make pin-point passes... not afraid to go to the net... needs to improve his physical presence and his play in traffic... needs to show more consistency.
2006-07 Season: Had 27-52-79 in 60 games with Quebec this season... participated in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects game... was the QMJHL Player of the Week on Nov. 16, after he had 4-7-11 in three games of the previous week.
What they're saying: "Instead of looking at what he does right, (scouts) look hard for flaws. He's under a microscope and that's not always fair. A lot of clubs would love to bring Angelo Esposito into the fold - That hasn't changed." – NHL Scout (Columbus Dispatch - 6-10-07)
