Nathan Légaré: 2019 NHL Draft Prospect Profile || A big, lumbering scoring machine on the wing

Nathan Legare was among the best goal-scorers in major junior this past season, but that ability comes with a major question mark in the form of his skating and lack of speed. Are his great hands enough to overcome that at the next level? Goal-scorers are something that every team in every hockey league in the world needs. The Devils, in particular, are in a perpetual search for goal-scorers because they rarely have much in the way of high-end finishers. They have often lacked for creators as well, but they seem to be on their way to solving that problem with the aid of a couple first...
