History

2008-09: Louis-Marc Aubry scored 10 goals and added 12 assists in 65 games in his QMJHL rookie season for the Montreal Juniors.  He also played in 10 playoff games for that club, scoring 2 goals and 2 assists.

2009-10: Aubry played 66 games for the Montreal Juniors, scoring 15 goals and adding 18 assists for 33 points.  In seven playoff games for Montreal, Aubry scored 1 goal and 1 assist for 2 points.  Scored an empty net goal for the victorious Team Cherry at the 2010 CHL Top Propsects Game.  Ranked 87th among North American skaters by Central Scouting in the final rankings.

2010-11: Aubry started off the year strong as a member of the Montreal Juniors before going down with an injury. He played in 35 games, finishing the season with 13 goals and 12 assists for 25 points. Aubry had a strong post-season, participating in 10 games where he scored 5 goals and 1 assist for 6 points.

2011-12: Aubry made his pro hockey debut as a 20-year-old, skating in 62 games for Detroit’s AHL affiliate Grand Rapids. In mostly a lower line role, he scored 5 goals with 11 assists and was minus-six with 39 penalty minutes.  Grand Rapids missed the AHL playoffs; finishing fourth in the North Division.

2012-13: Aubry skated for Detroit AHL affiliate Grand Rapids in his second pro season. Playing in a lower line role, he scored 4 goals with 8 assists and was -2 with 60 penalty minutes in 64 games. The Griffins finished first in the Midwest Division and captured the Calder Cup championship. Aubry played in 14 of 24 playoff games and was +3 with 1 assist.

2013-14: Aubry split his third pro season between the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins and Toledo in the ECHL.  He scored 2 goals with 2 assists and was -1 with 16 penalty minutes in 38 regular season games for the Griffins. Grand Rapids finished second in the Midwest Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Aubry did not appear in any playoff games. He played 18 ECHL regular season games with Toledo, scoring 7 goals with 8 assists, and was -4 with 10 penalty minutes. The Walleye missed the ECHL playoffs, finishing last in the North Division.

2014-15: Aubry returned to Grand Rapids for his fourth season with the Griffins. Close to matching his career-highs in games played, goals, assists and plus/minus, he has been effective in a lower line role. 

Talent Analysis

Aubry is a big player with the ideal frame for a power forward. He is a solid two-way presence. Drafted based on a skill set that suggested he would one day dominate on the ice, he has developed into more of a support player during his minor league career.  Crashing the net and blocking shots with equal enthusiasm, he has not proven to be much of a scoring forward, but the rest of the package suggests he can be valuable in a lower line role.

Future

Aubry spent his fourth season with Grand Rapids in 2014-15 in the "slide" year of his original three-year entry-level contract. He has been a solid player in a two-way role with the Griffins and has been equally valuable in helping rookie Anthony Mantha, like Aubry a French-speaking Quebec native, make the adjustment from the QMJHL to pro hockey. Long-term his ceiling as a prospect appears limited in terms of scoring ability. His team-first approach and ideal size suggest he could have some value in a lower line role one day.

As with seemingly every Detroit Red Wings draft class, five years is almost too early to evaluate its success; that said, the Red Wings 2010 draft may have been the organization’s most successful since 2005, when the team took long-term contributors Justin Abdelkader, Jakub Kindl and Darren Helm.

It has been a gradual change, but the draft picks that have been laying in wait for the Detroit Red Wings have started to make their impact on the team’s NHL roster. As some graduate to the NHL others have filled their spots in the AHL, leaving Detroit’s system very top-heavy with prospects playing professionally.

It has been a gradual change, but most things associated with the Detroit Red Wings work that way. In a salary-cap constrained hockey landscape, Detroit can no longer simply outspend other franchises; Detroit knew this eight seasons ago and began to stockpile talent through the NHL Draft.

Detroit's run through the first round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs was surprising to many. Perhaps more surprising is depth of talent they have in their pipeline. The Detroit Red Wings boast some exceptional prospects who have the potential to be future stars in the NHL. The following awards feature the Red Wings prospects who stood out above the rest. The fact that no player won multiple awards is indicative of the depth of Detroit's talent pool.
