With the 80th pick in the 2013 draft, the Rangers 3rd third rounder) the Rangers took Anthony Duclair of the Quebec Remparts.
He has been described, by Buzzing the Net, as a player who “exceptional acceleration, speed, and the ability to process a play quickly.”
Duclair has spent time training with his uncle Fred who runs a school for athletes in Toronto and was a Fullback in the CFL. He has also worked in the past with Barb Underhill.
At the start of the season, Duclair was ranked 25th by Future Considerations before he fell out of their top 30 during the season. FC says that the first thing about Duclair that jumps out at you is his speed and that he reaches levels where he is able to beat defensemen wide.
They add that Duclair can make a goalie look silly and “his shot is accurate and comes off with a good release. He has the ability to make crisp, accurate passes and find open teammates but is considered more of a finisher.”
