|Undrafted - Under 20|
|Written by Eric Daoust|
March 2013 - Jean-Sebastian Dea was named the QMJHL Third Star of the Week (ending March 9th) after burrying five goals and seven points in three weekly games. Dea will enter the 2013 NHl Draft as a second time eligible forward and with his current 78 points, it is very likely that a team snatches him up. At this point in time, Dea is not fantasy relevant but the small fiery forward does have the potential to contribute offensively as well in other categories such as penalty minutes. Brendan Ross
January 2013 - Dea has slowed since his strong start to the season but he is scoring at just over a point-per-game pace and sits with 35 goals and 62 points in 48 games. Eric Daoust
December 2012 – Jean-Sebastien Dea is another example of an underdog player who is not particularly big yet is extremely shifty and talented with the puck. After not getting drafted in last June’s NHL entry draft, Dea is having a breakout season for Rouyn-Noranda of the QMJHL with 23 goals and 43 points in 28 games, good for ninth in the league. He was also selected to represent the QMJHL in the Subway Super Series. His play this year will certainly generate interest for the 2013 draft but if he gets selected it will likely be in the later rounds.
Fantasy Outlook: D+
At this point Dea has to be considered a long-shot with upside should the stars align. Several years away if he makes it at all.
