JONATHAN HUBERDEAU
#3 North American Skater
Saint John, QMJHL
 
Position: Center Shoots: Left
Height: 6'1" Weight: 170
Born: 6/4/93 Born In: Saint-Jerome, QC
   
THE SKINNY:
The third ranked North American skater according to C.S.S., Jonathan Huberdeau worked his way up from fourth at the mid-term rankings. Huberdeau’s 105 points in 67 games this year was a single-season record for Saint John. He was first in the QMJHL with a plus-59 rating.

Even though his first language is French, Huberdeau chose to attend an English speaking high school to improve his academics and to help out if he made it to the NHL. Sometimes, his younger sister sings the national anthem before Sea Dogs’ home games. 

NHL Central Scouting's Chris Bordeleau: “He's the type of player who can change the outcome of a game suddenly and quickly. He's displayed unbelievably quick hands and an ability to set up and score goals. He definitely has NHL hands and playmaking ability . . . he's also gritty and does not back down when challenged."

Saint John head coach Gerard Gallant: “He's still not the fastest, but I'd certainly label him the craftiest on our team. He's a quality, character kid. He competes both ways, battles for those goals around the net and competes hard in every situation. I can put Jonathan on the ice in any situation … the last minute of a game when we're behind by a goal or ahead by a goal. He comes to play every time. His vision is outstanding, he has great puck skills and I think he's the complete package."

NEWS:
Huberdeau Skates To Top Of 2011 Draft Rankings
(5.4.11) Jonathan Huberdeau took the non-traditional path in learning how to skate -- and he paid the price.

"My mom and dad wanted me to learn how to skate before playing hockey," Huberdeau told NHL.com, "so they enrolled me in these speed-skating classes."
