History

2008-09: Tomas Vincour was chosen by the Dallas Stars in the fifth round, 129th overall, of the 2009 NHL Draft.

 

Talent Analysis

Vincour is a sizeable, powerful forward with good hockey sense.  He has good instincts at both ends of the ice and has the makings of a responsible player.  Can play the physical game along the wall and he uses his body to protect the puck well.  A fine player on the cycle and going to the front of the net.  Has a good shot but needs to assure himself that he’ll find space on NHL ice to release it.  Not the best skater in the world, a bit plodding but he gets to where he has to go.

 

Future

Vincour's potential is as a 2nd line goal-scoring power forward.

Vincour was dealt by the Dallas Stars to the Colorado Avalanche in April of 2013 in a deal that sent Cameron Gaunce to the Stars.

Montreal hosted the 2009 NHL Draft. The draft was highlighted by super-skilled forwards John Tavares and Matt Duchene and massive Swedish defenseman Victor Hedman. All three have been exceptional NHL players. In fact, the first seven players selected have all been impactful NHL players to whatever degree. Unfortunately, first-time GM Joe Nieuwendyk was armed with the eighth pick.
