Habs: One Game Scouting Report for Michael Bournival at World Junior Development Camp

Bournival with best grade and risk/reward rating among Montreal Canadiens prospects at Junior evaluation camp

The Montreal Canadiens have 3 prospects competing at the Canadian World Junior Development Camp. Canadiens prospects include Michael Bournival, Brendan Gallagher and Nathan Beaulieu. I will be posting 6 separate scouting reports for these prospects from games played during the development camp.

Michael Bournival was brought into the Montreal Canadiens organization through a 2010 mid-season trade. The Habs moved Ryan O'Byrne to the Colorado Avalanche for the left-handed Bournival; who was chosen by the Avalanche in the third-round of the 2010 NHL entry draft.

The 5'11", 178 lbs centre is a powerful skater with good puck-handling skills. He showed a solid stick, and consistently used his speed to pounce on loose pucks in the offensive, and neutral-zones.  Despite playing against better players, Bournival posted a superior overall grade than he did during a previous QMJHL game I scouted.

  Bournival's grade, ratings and success-rates for specific events through 3 games scouted can be found here

Overall Grade

 Bournival's work in the offensive and neutral-zones carried his grade. He had the top grade and overall risk/reward rating of the 3 Habs' prospects in the game; despite ending the game with a minus-2 plus/minus rating. His best work was in the offensive zone, where he used his speed and hockey-sense to pounce on loose pucks. His play in the o-zone garnered him 4 shots on net.

Overall Risk/Reward Rating

The lines during the game were, for the most part, simply rolled over. due to this ice-time was a non-factor in the players final rating. Bournival had a solid risk/reward rating. His best asset in the game was his speed. This allowed him to win 12 of 19 total puck-battles, while successfully getting the puck deep into the offensive zone with 6 of 8 attempts.
