2010-11: Gabryel Boudreau played in two midget AAA games for College Antoine-Girouard in Quebec and spent the season playing for McMasterville. He was scoreless in two games with the Gaulois. Paquin-Boudreau was selected by Longuiel in the 14th round (195th overall) of the 2011 Quebec AAA Junior League Draft.

2011-12: Boudreau scored 33 goals, third-most in Quebec midget AAA hockey, and was the leading scorer for College Antoine-Girouard with 58 points in 43 games his first full season with the Gaulois. College Antoine-Girouard finished first in the Reebok Division. Paquin-Boudreau added 11 goals with 5 assists in 11 playoff games. He was selected by Baie-Comeau in the first round (10th overall) of the 2012 QMJHL Entry Draft.

2012-13: Boudreau had an impressive first season in the QMJHL skating alongside fellow 17-year-old Valentin Zykov and Felix Girard. He scored 22 goals with 41 assists and was +31 with 43 penalty minutes. Baie-Comeau finished first in the East Division and reached the QMJHL Finals against Halifax.

Boudreau was chosen in the second round, 49th overall, of the 2013 NHL Draft by the San Jose Sharks.


Talent Analysis

Boudreau is a perfect example of how being in the right place at the right time pays off. Though only average sized and not a particularly quick skater, Paquin-Boudreau shines when it comes to his on-ice positioning and puck awareness, especially when that involves scoring a timely goal with his quick release. Also a good playmaker, the limitations in his game are not due to a lack of effort on the ice.



Boudreau suffered through an injury-plagued 2014-15 season with Baie-Comeau, and as a result went unsigned by the Sharks. He will be eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft.

You can forgive Moncton Wildcats fans for not recognizing the solid yet undersized and speedy winger wearing the No. 13 jersey for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens during Game 1 of the two teams’ first-round playoff series. The nameplate above the number – Boudreau – probably wasn’t much of an identifier either, particularly since the player hadn’t been seen in any of the previous meetings between the two teams this season.

The San Jose Sharks prospect pool has improved greatly over the past season, quietly becoming one of the more respectable collections of prospects in the league. This surge is due in large part to the organizational desire to get younger, the 2014 NHL draft class, and the aggressive free agent signings of Barclay Goodrow and Nikita Jevpalovs.
