Lukas Cormier Vegas Golden Knights prospects

Vegas Golden Knights defensive prospect Lucas Cormier has been named the Defenseman of the Month for October by the QMJHL.

Seleted in the third round (#68) by Vegas in this year’s NHL Entry Draft, Cormier posted 4-9-13 in nine games for the Charlottetown Islanders. The 18-year-old defenseman was also named to Team Canada’s National Junior Team Selection Camp roster ahead of the upcoming 2021 World Junior Championships.

At the time of his selection, Vegas Golden Knights general manager Kelly McCrimmon called him a “very talented offensive defenseman” while Charlottetown’s head coach and general manager Jim Hulton didn’t mince any words.

“I think he’s going to be one of the steals of the draft, to get him at 68,” he said. “In my opinion, he was probably far ahead of a lot of guys that have went (before him) and I think he’s going to have fun proving them all wrong.”

Charlottetown’s 9-2-0-0 start to the season places them firmly atop the entire league, with Acadie-Bathurst behind at 7-3-1-1.
