Hometown: Victoriaville, QC

Drafted: 2011 by Chicago, 26th overall








September 2013- Danault was sent down to Rockford in the next-to-last round of cuts. His stock has really been on the rise over the last year following his 85 point swan song in the QMJHL. The time has come to see what he can do at the pro level. Rex Doty


June 2013- Even with a trade at the QMJHL deadline from Victoriaville to Moncton, Danault had a career year. He posted 85 in 56
games combined for the two teams. It looks like Danaullt will end his time in Juniors on a high note. The 2013-14 season should see Danault plying his trade with the IceHogs, where we will see how that offense will actually translate to the pros. Rex Doty


February 2013 - Phillip Danault was named the QMJHL Second Star of the Week (ending February 24th) after potting three goals and eight points in three games. Danault has been a welcomed addition to the Moncton Wildcats, contenders in the QMJHL, especially with his versatile play in all three zones of the rink. Danault is among the QMJHL leaders in faceoffs with a remarkable 69% efficiency rate. Brendan Ross


January 2013- The Chicago draft pick was recently traded to the Wildcats in preparation for a hopeful long playoff run. The hardworking centre played a shutdown role for Canada at the World Juniors and has picked up right where he left off since his return to the QMJHL with 5 points in his first two games. Derek LeBlanc

December 2012 - Danault was one of 21 forwards invited to take part in Canada's National Junior Selection camp for the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia.  The two-way forward stands a very good chance at cracking the Canadian lineup with his astute attention to detail at both ends of the rink making him a likely candidate for the third or fourth line centre position.  Brendan Ross


October, 2012- Phillip Danault is off to a hot start to the 2012-13 season, potting 11 goals and 20 points in 11 games. Eric Daoust

March, 2012 – Danault is the reigning defensive forward of the year and is on pace for another point a game season in the QMJHL. He is the captain of his Victoriaville team and has all the intangibles to become an NHL player. His coach raves about his passion and sees a future NHL captain. He’s a complete player who is extremely strong on the puck and excels in big games. He will have to rise up Chicago’s depth chart so it could be a while before he has an impact.


Fantasy Outlook: C

While the 85 points this past season can't be ignored, watch Danault closely in the AHL to see if he can translate that offense to the pro level. The jury is still out on that aspect of his game at the next level.
