Bradley Nadeau W/C Maine

Last year’s first-round pick entered the college ranks with the reputation of a player with an elite level, quick release shot, and high-level skating ability.  Nadeau has continued his production from the Junior level with a fantastic first season at the University of Maine.  He is currently tied for the team lead in scoring with 16 goals and 23 assists. My guess is Nadeau stays for one more season at Maine before signing his entry-level deal in the 2025 offseason.  As he matures and continues to grow his game, Nadeau could become a player similar to current Hurricane Seth Jarvis.
