Marlies sign 21-year old Justin Brazeau
« on: April 04, 2019, 09:41:45 AM »

21-year old from Northern Ontario. Listed at 6'6", 226 lbs. 61 goals and 113 points in 68 games in the OHL this season. That put him 2nd in the league in points and 1st in goals. Could be an interesting late bloomer. Based off the numbers I'm a little surprised he's only getting an AHL deal, but works for us.

If Brazeau outscores Korshkov on the Marlies next season I'm going to lose it.

Interesting. I thought for sure he'd get an NHL deal from someone.

I'm going to guess that him and his agent are putting a lot of faith into Toronto's developmental system here.

I was wondering what Brazeau would choose after his name was floated a couple of weeks ago.

Either no one wanted to throw an NHL contract his way, or perhaps it was a Toronto or bust situation.

Some nice hands there, but yeah his skating looks a long way from being NHL calibre. At least from that one clip.

He's like a better Mason Marchment on paper (when he was first picked up as a project).

It would be suicide for one of those Hounds to get in his way.

He's not going that fast.

And they did make an effort to take away his hands, but sometimes the guy makes a nice play despite reasonably good defense. Given that it was 3-on-3 OT and only one of those Hounds was a d-man...

Good signing, he has the hands, let hope Barb can help him find his feet.
