Charles-Alexis Legault D Quinnipiac

With their 5th-round pick in 2023, the Hurricanes selected Quebecois d-man Charles-Alexis Legault.  This was a bit of a peculiar pick, with Legault being 19, turning 20 at the time of the draft.  Legault is currently completing his second season of college hockey at Quinnipiac University.  He is known as a solid defender who isn’t afraid to use his body or jump into the rush on the attack.  Legault has good skating ability for someone his size (Listed at 6’3) and could develop into a dependable bottom-pairing d-man.  The Hurricanes would be ecstatic for the 5th-round pick to turn into a regular NHLer.

Future Outlook: 3rd pairing/7th d-man to AHL regular
