History

2010-11: Laurent Dauphin played for the College Esther-Blondin Phenix in Quebec midget AAA hockey. He scored 16 goals with 25 assists and had 29 penalty minutes in 41 games. In three playoff contests for the Phenix he had 1 assist. Dauphin was selected by Chicoutimi in the first round (17th overall) of the 2011 QMJHL Entry Draft.

2011-12: Dauphin returned to College Esther-Blondin for a second season as the Phenix captured the Quebec championship and advanced to the 2012 Telus Cup national midget championship game. He scored 18 goals with 45 assists in 41 regular season games and in 13 playoff games scored 12 goals with 14 assists. Dauphin scored 11 goals with 7 assists in seven Telus Cup games. The Phenix lost to Red Deer in double overtime of the championship game. Dauphin played for Canada Quebec in the 2012 U17 World Hockey Challenge and had 1 assist in five games.

2012-13: Dauphin was the fourth-leading scorer for Chicoutimi in his first QMJHL season and won a gold medal with Canada’s U18 team at the 2013 U18 World Junior Championship. He scored 25 goals with 32 assists in 62 games and was an even plus/minus with 50 penalty minutes. The Sagueneens reached the playoffs; finishing fifth in the East Division. Dauphin scored 2 goals with 2 assists and was minus-one with 8 penalty minutes in the six-game series with Quebec. In seven games for Canada in Sochi he scored 4 goals with 2 assists and was plus-two with 6 penalty minutes. Dauphin was ranked 28th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings prior to the 2013 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

A bit of a jack-of-all-trades on the ice, Dauphin combines hard work and a multifaceted game in an extremely versatile package. Though he may not have one particular skill that stands out above the rest, Dauphin's best attribute may be simply the fact that he always keeps his feet moving. With good offensive vision and good hands in tight, Dauphin tallies a lot of his points by simply outworking the opposition. That same dedication and his smooth skating style also benefit him at the defensive side of the game. He'll be even better as he continues to fill out and polish his game.

 

Future

At only 18 years old, Dauphin will likely return to Chicoutimi of the QMJHL for his second season with the squad.

Beside the play of top-line defensemen Keith Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson, it has been a relatively forgettable year for the Arizona Coyotes. The team is firmly out of a playoff position and well off-pace to match last season’s total of 89 points, which landed them ninth in the Western Conference. Arizona’s AHL team, the Portland Pirates, is middle-of-the-pack but holding on to a playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

Entering the 2014-15 season, many Arizona Coyotes fans were quietly wondering if Max Domi would bring any scoring punch to the desert as an NHL rookie in 2014-15. They were blindsided when he was unceremoniously returned to the OHL’s London Knights without even a sniff of regular season NHL action.
