At 6’7″ and 196 pounds, Maveric Lamoureux is is a physical and defensive specimen who, despite possessing some glaring weaknesses and an overall very raw skillset, flashes an astonishing, exciting two-way potential. TSN’s Craig Button listed him at No. 20 on his September ranking of this season’s top prospects. A strong performance by Lamoureux this season could make the big right-handed defenseman a tempting first-round option.

Strengths

  1. Lamoureux hit like a brick wall, meeting enemies with crushing checks in transition and completely neutralizing them in corners.
  2. His long stick helped him get his nose in many puck battles and disturb opponents in their deke, shot or pass attempts.
  3. It’s rare to see a prospect his size flashing the ability to move, accelerate and escape forecheckers like him.

Areas of Improvement

  1. Is a long-term project, and is very raw in his overall skillset.
  2. Need to improve his consistency on the breakout, showcasing shaky decision-making and passing accuracy.

Scouting Report

Maveric Lameroux is a physical and defensive specimen who, despite possessing some glaring weaknesses and an overall very raw skillset, flashes an astonishing, exciting two-way potential. He is making scouts drool over the idea of what could be; a 6-foot-7 puck-moving, hard-hitting, defensively sounded rearguard. What differentiates Lamoureux from other big defensive defensemen though, is his encouraging mobility, and more specifically, how his play could evolve around it. It’s rare to see a prospect his size flashing the ability to move, accelerate and escape forecheckers like he did. Maveric could transform puck retrievals into smooth zone breakouts, turning the corner with speed and navigating pressure with confidence. He was bold enough to push the pace with stretch passes, or at times, relied on simple outlets to start the transition. At this current moment, Lameroux is still raw in his skillset, but his combination of size, strength, and defensive ability; his strong confidence, excellent mobility, and vision make scouts relish at the idea of what could be. His has a very hard shot but at this point in his career, it is very hit or miss. If he can improve the accuracy on his shot, he could develop into a threat on the powerplay. I would compare Maveric Lamoureux to Zdeno Chara, who took a long time to adjust to the NHL level, but when he did, he became a perennial all-star and Hall of Fame-caliber defenseman. Now I’m not implying that Lamoureux is going to be as good as Chara, but I do think he will have all-star potential.
Although there are some flaws in his game, his sheer size and potential should have him drafted in the first round.
