Scouting Report:

Xavier Bourgault plays for the Shawinigan Cataractes of the QMJHL; he put up 71 points in 63 games last season and will look to build off last season. Bourgault’s offensive game primarily relies on driving the center lane and working off his teammates. He can create offensive changes through his excellent puck retrieval skills and non-stop motor. Xavier shows great hands in tight and has a deceptive release on his shot. Although Bourgault is an above-average skater, he makes up for it with his hockey IQ and tireless work ethic. Bourgault has all the tools to be a point producer in the NHL; he has very strong puck skills and his hand-eye is insane. His ability to stickhandle through traffic is a major strength, and he is also a reliable defensive player. Bourgault is a player that can be relied on to help generate scoring chances and make a difference on the scoresheet. Even though he may not be a star winger, he should be able to play a top-six role in the NHL. Bourgault should be a late first-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.


A Goal Scoring Winger, with excellent puck retrieval skills and has non stop motor.
