History

2010-11: Remi Elie played for the Eastern Ontario Wild midget program in Ottawa. In 34 games for the midget major team, including five playoff games, he scored 18 goals with 27 assists and had 49 penalty minutes. He also skated for the midget minor team. Elie was the first overall selection in the 2011 CJHL Draft, by Hawkesbury, and was selected by London in the fifth round (91st overall) of the 2011 OHL Priority Draft.

2011-12: Elie was the second-leading scorer for the Junior A Hawkesbury Hawks as a 16-year-old behind Stephen Hrehoriak. He scored 21 goals with 25 assists in 59 games and had 39 penalty minutes. The Hawks finished fifth in the 12-team CJHL and reached the second round in the playoffs. Elie was Hawkesbury’s leading scorer in the playoffs with 5 goals and 4 assists in nine games. In April he signed a contract to play for the London Knights in 2012-13.

2012-13: Elie played in 65 OHL games for London in his first season and participated in the Memorial Cup after the Knights captured the OHL playoff championship. Elie scored 7 goals with 10 assists and was +7 with 34 penalty minutes during the regular season. The Knights won 50 of 68 games in regulation to finish with the OHL’s best record and overcame a three games to one deficit in the OHL Finals against Barrie. Elie scored 4 goals with 4 assists and was +3 with 8 penalty minutes in 21 OHL playoff games. In five games at the Memorial Cup he had 1 assist and was +1 with 4 penalty minutes. Elie was ranked 71st amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Dallas in the second round (40th overall) in the 2013 NHL Draft.

2013-14: Elie was the leading scorer for the OHL’s Belleville Bulls after being acquired from the London Knights in exchange for overage defenseman Brad Austin in October 2013. After scoring 1 goal with 2 assists in six games in limited ice time with the Knights, he had a breakout second junior season in an expanded role for the rebuilding Bulls. In 61 games he scored 28 goals with 37 assists and was minus-12 with 44 penalty minutes. He scored 10 of his 28 goals on the power play. Belleville missed the playoffs; finishing fourth in the East Division. Elie signed a three-year entry-level contract with Dallas in September 2014. 

Talent Analysis

Elie is a plumbing type winger that has a good shot and is a willing participant in anything. He supports the puck well on the boards and in a tactful, practical manner; doing good work on the cycle. Elie sometimes errs on the side of caution defensively and sees the game well when defending. Offensively he's not a terribly creative thinker and he might grow out of that a little bit, but he's not going to be a full-fledged, open-ice dangler. He has an unorthodox skating stride that lends itself to some somewhat unpredictable results. Elie can get around the ice fine, but he lacks top speed and his first step is inconsistent. He loses his edge a lot on turns of even moderate tightness.

Future
Elie competed for Dallas in the 2014 Traverse City rookie tournament and impressed in the Stars main training camp before being returned to Belleville for the 2014-15 season; signing an entry-level contract with Dallas shortly after leaving camp. Active in all areas of the ice, Elie is the leading scorer amongst Belleville forwards. The Bulls are battling for second in the OHL's East Division behind league-leading Oshawa. In terms of NHL potential, he projects as a Matt Martin-like bottom-six energy winger with the high end potential of a complementary goal-scorer, "glue guy", similar to Chicago's Bryan Bickell.

Artemi Panarin, the newest Chicago Blackhawk appears ready for the NHL, but before he gets there, an appearance at the 2015 IIHF World Championship is on tap. Likewise, top prospect Jack Eichel is playing in the tournament, and performing well at that. The human highlight reel strikes again for the Erie Otters, as Connor McDavid creates another present for the hockey world. The Washington Capitals are headed to Game Seven soon, but they wouldn’t have made it there if not for McDavid’s former teammate in Erie, Andre Burakovsky. The Los Angeles Kings may not have made the playoffs this year, but their AHL team is in the midst of a nice run towards the Calder Cup thanks in part to two of the Kings’ prospects. Read more»

The most resounding example being young defenseman John Klingberg, who has been just what the doctor ordered on a Dallas Stars attack needing a big time puck mover.

In the game of hockey, much is made of individual performances and skill sets. But hockey is and always will be a team sport, and no matter how great a young player is, he will always be reliant upon his linemates. Every second on the ice is a battle. For every highlight-reel shift where a player weaves around his entire opposition and scores, there are a thousand shifts where he and his linemates have to work together for a positive result.
