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.

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 Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2013 NHL Draft.

 

Talent Analysis

Plumbing type winger that has a good shot and is a willing participant in anything. Supports the puck well on the boards and in tactful, practical manner. Does good work on the cycle. Errs on the side of caution defensively and sees the game pretty 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. Interesting skating stride that lends itself to some somewhat unpredictable results. He 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.

Likely potential: Bottom-six energy winger, like Matt Martin

High ceiling: Complementary goal-scorer, "glue guy", like Bryan Bickell

It might be a new ranch, but it is not his first rodeo. Dallas Stars new General Manager Jim Nill embarked on his first substantial opportunity to put his mark on his new team at the National Hockey League Entry Draft in Newark, NJ in the midst of an otherwise indiscernible June afternoon and evening. Nill and his staff entered the day with nine picks in seven rounds, including five of the first 68 selections. Like many drafts as they approach, this one was touted as the “next great one” and if that is any indication (it normally is not), the Stars were primed to really push their already burgeoning prospect pool to the boiling point.
