#97 overall, Sabres select F Olivier Nadeau

Another select from the CHL, Olivier is a big boy already @ 6’2” & 205 pounds. Here’s what eliteprospects has to say about him:

He uses his size, protects the puck, and finds teammates quickly under pressure. He can grab the puck from the yellow of the board, protect it by driving his knee and bottom hand into opponents, and slip passes to shooters in open ice. His offensive planning is among the best in the draft. He anticipates the routes of teammates and defenders and identifies productive plays ahead of time. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide
