Birthdate: May 22, 1992
From: Amqui, QC; Canada
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 172lbs

The Canucks selected 6-foot-1, 195-pound center Alexandre Mallet with their second-round pick (57th overall).

Mallet had gone undrafted the previous two years but had a breakout offensive season for Rimouski of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He went from 19 points (10-9-19) two years ago to 34-47-81 last season and 132 PIMs.

He’s been called a tough and gritty forward, who’s not afraid to drop the gloves, and with a style similar to Detroit’s Tomas Holmstrom.

Mallet projects as a third liner who is good at both ends of the rink.

Meh it's ok, I was hoping we would take Damon Severson. You can't go wrong with a Kelowna rocket Defenceman (others: Weber, Keith, Myers, Schenn), and it was said that he could go in the 1st/2nd round, so Canucks getting him then would've been a steal. I thought we had to get more defensive prospects then anything. I wasn't happy with MG this draft

81 points, 8 fights this year, seems to play pretty gritty and he won most of his fights from the ones I watched. good pick

An overager point producer as a 2nd round pick. 3rd line ceiling.

I wouldn't say this is a terrible pick but wow, has the quality of prospects sunk that low already, even for a 2nd rounder?

Mallet seems like a likeable guy from his interview... He looked so damn shocked lol... I think he was more shocked than any of us here... I can't wait to see him punch someone while he is wearing a Canucks jersey.

The five bolded players will attend a US college program so they will not be attending prospects tournament or training camp. Also, Grenier is in Austria, so not sure if he'll be attending.

Sweatt - Schroeder - Jensen
Mallet - Gaunce - Rodin
Archibald - Friesen - Anthony
Rai - Schneider - Tochkin (or FAs or Camp Invites - anywhere on this line)

Connauton - Corrado
Sauve - Polasek
Andersson - FAs or Camp Invite

Cannata
Honzik

That's what I think our lineup will look like. We can definitely take Edmonton on this year IMO - our center depth is finally looking decent with Schroeder, Gaunce and Friesen down the middle.

Also, I wonder if Kassian will attend - probably not - same with Tanev. And what is the eligibility for playing in this tournament? Schroeder and Sweatt have played in a couple now, I think ...

I believe our college players can attend if they pay their own way, I remember that was the case with Pat White a few years back. They can't accept payment or room/board, it will void their scholarship.

Ya, you're right, i'm not sure if some of our AHL experienced players will be allowed to attend... So we might have a thin camp.

I believe Labate is a pretty good find in the 4th round. He had a good 1st year at university of Wisconsin. Wouldn't be surprised if he's playing wjc hockey for USA this year

Really? Why? Because he is going to college? I would be willing to bet that he will be an everyday NHL'er at the very least

so in 8 extra games he was able to get 60 more Points than the previous year in the same league and team. Lets hope that is more about him, his play, effort, etc. than the team getting better players

Don't know anything about the guy, but based on stats (especially the 80PTS in 68 games) looking pretty good. Hope the best for all players drafted and hopefully someday people will look at this year and see that Canucks were the real definite winners ;)

The pessimism in this topic is sickening. Show a bit of support for the new prospects and for the Canucks. A lot of you goofs seem to think you have the gift of foresight or something.

Agreed and I don't even see where it's coming from. What information do we have to fault someone like Labate on? I don't know about all of you but I've found it very hard to catch any of his games this year and we all know that stats only say so much. The fact that no one has stuck up for Rodin either confuses me. I was really impressed with him in the games I watched by the end of the season. The kid has skills AND is a defensively sound player. How are we not excited about this prospect?

Yup, with LaBate, in the games I saw him play, my only knock on him was that he wasn't physical enough, especially considering he was easily the tallest guy in each game. Other than that, he was fast, made good defensive plays, and has a wicked wrister.

Schroeder, Rodin and Labate say high.

Rodin has been a huge disspointment and is most likely a future SEL player with Gillis wanting size for the team. its too early to say Labate is a good pick. Also, Schroeder did not turn out to be the offesive powerhouse steal who thought we got at the draft when he fell to us.

Lol! Huge disappointment?

Sry but he just finished his first NA season and spent most of it with a shoulder problem. Not sure how that is a disappointment.

So in what way did he wow you? You do realize his ELC ends in next season and he is most likely not going to be ready.

He didnt wow me but he made steady improvement last season, especially in the second half of the season.

Lots of prospects dont make the NHL during their ELC especially a lot of second round European players because they spent there first year of te ELC usually playing in Europe, then come over and adjust to the NA game and then make big improvements in their 3rd year.

Rodin is only turning 22 in November. He's not even close to his prime yet or finished developing.
