Observations:

 

November 2013- Dauphin has had a decent start to 2013-14 season, not exactly eye popping stats but a solid 23 points in 25 games for Chicoutimi of the QMJHL. With his solid start to the season, Dauphin was named to the QMJHL roster for the SUBWAY Super Series. In the two QMJHL wins, he finished with an assist and while not usually part of his game a major and a game misconduct on a dirty hit for checking team Russia defenseman Viktor Baldaev from behind in game two. He was suspended indefinitely and on November 24th the QMJHL announced that Dauphin will be suspended six games for the hit. Keith Duggan


June 2013 - The Phoenix Coyotes selected Laurent Dauphin with the 39th pick of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft out of the Chicoutimi program (QMJHL). Brendan Ross


June 2013 – Dauphin had his coming out party at the CHL/NHL Top Prospects game when he was called up to replace an injured player and ended up taking home player of the game honours. He is a skilled forward with strong puck skills and his mobility shows lots of pro potential, especially in the areas of speed and agility. Dauphin lacks an ideal hockey frame so adding strength is a priority. In 62 games with Chicoutimi (QMJHL), Dauphin tallied 25 goals and 57 points. After a strong draft season, Dauphin was named to Canada's U18 WHC team and contributed four goals and six points in seven tournament games. Brendan Ross


Fantasy Outlook: C+

Dauphin owns above average offensive skills but does not excel in any one particular skill so he will need to remain a consistent offensive threat and continue to add strength in order to make it as a top six player.
