Only hockey fans of the QJAAAHL’s Saint-Jérôme Panthers had heard of Alexandre Grenier before the start of this year, but the 19-year-old got an opportunity with the QMJHL’s Québec Remparts halfway through the season and ran with it. The 6-foot-5, 201-pound right winger potted 9 goals and 28 points in 31 games for the Remparts during the regular season, and racked up another 8 goals and 16 points in 15 playoff games. He also scored an impressive 60 points, on 25 goals and 35 assists in just 33 games for the Panthers. Last season, Grenier amassed 54 points, on 26 goals and 28 assists, and averaged 1.33 points per game in his two years with St-Jérôme. Along with having excellent size and reach, he is a good skater, with nice hands, good puckhandling skills, has a tremendous release, adept hockey sense and vision, and plays an overall complete game. So much so, that Québec head coach Patrick Roy would rely on Grenier in several key situations late in the season. At the recent QMJHL Draft, Halifax Mooseheadsm GM Cam Russell traded his 11th overall Euro Pick and PEI’s 4th round pick to Quebec in exchange for the late blooming, somewhat enigmatic forward. Which should improve a club that went a dreadful 20-43-2-3 last season. With his impressive size and overall skill set, it is hard not to imagine Grenier drawing some attention come the 2011 NHL Entry Draft this June.

He will play for the Halifax Mooseheads next year, which is where another one of our prospects play [Sawyer Hannay]. From the looks of it, he had a pretty good playoffs. I just wonder if he's a good skater or not.

Hey, all the scouts do is watch hockey, nothing wrong with bucking the trend at this points of the draft if you think there may be a sleeper lurking around.

This guy is going to be our new Marc-Andre Bernier (see 2003 draft), mark my words.

Personally, I care more about the individual character of a player than if they're French or not.

Wow. Seriously? Get out. This is pure racism. Just because he's French Candadian means he's a bust? Just like all those other awful French-Canadians on our team and the league. Ballsdeepfreeze, you're a disgrace.

A big specimen on our hands who has a great skating stride and the will to score. Will be a very nice turn out for us. Love this pick already.

I guess at his age he'll be making the jump to the AHL/ECHL after this season? A late-bloomer in junior like this makes me think that he might require some testing in the pros before a better picture of his potential is available... That said, his size, skating ability and offensive upside can't help but generate a little bit of excitement right now.

He was over a PPG in the playoffs last year with the Remparts.

15 Games Played - 8G, 8A - 16 PTS

He also had a good regular season with the Remparts when he joined half way through, and played 31 games while recording 24 pts. His size is what'll get him a bottom 9 role when he's ready to step in, IMO.

I don't know anything about the kid, at all

But that's never stopped me before. lol

Being 6.5', he might have taken awhile to get used to his body.

Things like co-ordination, hand-eye and just not tripping over your own feet can be hard when someone gets that tall.

Man-Child

By the way he has found his game, he probably is just finding his comfort level and becoming a man.  

Beast in the making.

As for the French Canadian nonsense, unlike Burrows, this monster would have bitten those fingers right off.

Anyway, the Canucks might send him back to juniors for an overage season... they probably want to work with him and get his development in order. The team feels that he's got talent but hasn't had a whole lot of coaching, so maybe it'd be good for him if he plays one more year with a team where he'll be getting lots of ice time. Lets him grow as a player and get into a rhythm offensively.

Can't help but be intrigued by that combination of size, speed and skill. Don't know if he plays nasty or not as he has low PIMS, or is just very disciplined, but if he develops a mean streak that would be sick. Posted Image

I will be posting a blog on him soon so Canucks fans can get to know him better.

after talking to him via email he seems like a real good kid with strong values who was a bit of a late bloomer. I think Canucks fans will be plenty happy with.

When I first saw Grenier's age I thought much the same but Schroeder also needs a veteran AHLer to help him figure out his own pro game, nevermind assist two AHL rookies with theirs.

We signed Mark Mancari for a reason and I think that reason is to help Schroeder. Archibald-Schroeder-Mancari would give him a similar combination that he had with Colin Wilson and James VanRiemsdyk but with the AHL's best player* on right wing.

"We think we have got the two best American League players and they are going to compete for a spot on our team," Gillis said.

If Mancari doesn't make the team, which seems to be the most likely scenario when you consider he barely made a Buffalo squad in comparison to the defending Western Conference Champion Canucks, it's off to Chicago to help develop our young offensive players like Schroeder.

As for Grenier, he'd best return to the Q under Roy's tutelage for more seasoning. Powerforwards take a long time to develop so it's better if he gets top-line minutes in the Q than 4th line minutes in the A.

He's 20 years old on Sept 5th, 6'5" and north of 200 lbs... he has nothing to gain playing against the kids of the QMJHL. His size alone makes that league too easy for him. He qualifies to play in the AHL and that's exactly what he should do; it'll help him develop more and will give him more of a challenge. Even the ECHL would help him more than the QMJHL. The CHL as an overager is ok for later round draft picks lacking size or undrafted players, but for someone of his size, it's more of a hindrance to his development. he needs to get used to playing against larger/faster/stronger opponents as soon as possible to get his progression underway. If he doesn't get top 9 min in the AHL, then he'd be better off in the ECHL getting top 6 min; but the CHL would be a bad call in every situation.
