The Maple Leafs selected Frederik Gauthier with the 21st overall pick of the 2013 amateur entry draft.

Gauthier is a very solid two-way player, who uses his well-developed hockey sense to make plays at both ends of the ice. His mature game will translate well in the NHL, though he isn’t viewed as a game-changing prospect. Gauthier showed some offensive ability this year, scoring 22 goals and registering 60 points in 62 games in his first season with Rimouski. However, it is his defensive play that is his ticket to the NHL. He’s strong in the faceoff circle and is very effective on the penalty kill. Though he doesn’t use his 6’3" frame to physically intimidate his opponents, he understands how to use his body in the cycle game and in shielding defenders from the puck. With some more development, he projects as a prototypical second or third-line player who could be used against an opposing team’s top line. The Maple Leafs sure could use this type of player but will likely have to wait a year or two before he can contribute.
