HABS: One-game Scouting Report for Michael Bournival from Memorial Cup

 Superstar-level numbers for Habs prospect Bournival

This one-game scouting report is from a preliminary round game at the 2012 Memorial Cup. Bournival's Shawinigan Cataractes defeated the London Knights by a score of 6-2. Bournival scored one goal, and added one assist.

Bournival is about to embark on his first season of pro hockey.  He had an impressive training camp last season; despite suffering through an injury. In fact, his even-strength risk/reward rating of  1.71 during the 2011-12 NHL preseason was fourth-best among all forwards in camp.


OVERALL GRADE

Bournival produced a superstar-level overall grade of  83. This isn't to say that he is a superstar in the making, it's simply a reflection of his play in this one game. He was impressive in all 3 zones. Forty percent of his total events took place in the offensive-zone, while 34% occurred in the defensive-zone. Bournival recovered an incredible 21 loose-pucks during the game; a testament to both his speed, and hockey IQ.  This translates to 1.21 recovered pucks per-minute of ice-time. The average among forwards is only 0.68.
