Observations:

 

July 2013- Gleason Fournier was drafted by and played his junior hockey for his hometown team - Rimouski Oceanic. Fournier has always been recognized for his world class skating abilities but hasn’t been able to carry over his offensive capabilities that he possessed in Rimouski. Detroit took a gamble in the 3rd round on Fournier thinking that with his skating ability the rest would come; unfortunately, we are still waiting for that to happen. With a new wave of talented young defensive prospects coming into the professional ranks this upcoming season Fournier could see himself on the outside looking in again and lacing it up for Toledo instead of Grand Rapids if he doesn’t make big strides this summer.

Fantasy Outlook: D+

Not enough growth shown from year one to two and at this point I don’t see him helping the big league club now or even in the future as he is pushed down the depth charts even more with Sproul, Ouellet, Jensen, Backman and Marchenko on the way.
