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.

Shayne Gostisbehere, Samuel Morin and Travis Sanheim are the top blue liners in the system, but are joined by several others in the Top 10—including Robert Hagg and Mark Alt. Read more»

This past week has been full of creative and jaw-dropping NHL prospect highlights. One QMJHL goaltender sets an unusual new standard in goal scoring, while another has yet to lose since making his NHL debut. A hometown hero breaks hearts by scoring with the “Forsberg move” in a clutch situation, and the future first overall pick displays why he deserves that accolade yet again. Two European forwards showcase their elite skill, and a former prospect scored one of the best goals that didn’t make the scoresheet in this week’s Prospect Impressions. Read more»

It’s no secret the Chicago Blackhawks have a knack for scouting and developing young talent. In fact, it is one of the prime reasons the Blackhawks have been one of the premiere franchises in the NHL for the past seven seasons. Due to this success, they continue to draft near the end of each round. Nevertheless, general manager Stan Bowman has managed to assemble an impressive system at nearly every position.
