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.
