Draft Profile: Sean Couturier

Up til draft day we will be doing some profiles about players the Islanders could possibly take with the number 5 overall pick. Our first one will be on big center Sean Couturier who currently plays in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Couturier who because of his size draws comparisons to a young Vincent Lecavalier was initially projected to be a top 3 pick however because of killer performances by players such as Jonathan Huberdeau its expected that Couturier will be there at five.

Couturier who put up 96 points in the QMJHL this season for a second season in a row is a fluid skater with good acceleration, a great stick handler, also has great hockey sense and vision on the ice.

If on draft day our turn comes up and Adam Larsson is off the board I wouldn't mind at all if we picked Couturier. His size is something I like since we really don't have a lot of that in the system.

So fans, what do you think about us taking Sean Couturier with the number five pick on draft day?
