Size:  3.1 KBIn this edition of Three (Future) Star Selection, we’ll look at the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL. Known as one of the most popular franchises in the CHL, the Remparts consistently ice a talented team and have produced notable, current NHL players such as current Simon Gagne, Antoine Vermette and Mike Riberio along with Hall of Fame members Michel Goulet and Guy Lafleur. Playing in front of crowds in excess of 11,000 on a regular basis, the Remparts are also a major draw on the road. The fact that they have one of the most recognisable personalities in all of hockey as their coach, Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy, doesn’t hurt. The Remparts have climbed the mountain twice in their history, winning the Memorial Cup in 1971 and again in 2006.

Third Star: Logan Shaw (20) - Quebec Remparts – Winger - @loganshaw11

A big, strong winger, Shaw has the major league size and skating ability that teams look for. Drafted by the Panthers 76th overall in 2011, Shaw has future power forward written all over him and will fit in nicely with a young Panthers team. Expect a few years of seasoning in the AHL.

Fantasy Value- one out of three stars

Second Star: Francois Brassard (19) – Quebec Remparts – Goalie - @fbrass31

Selected in the sixth round of the 2012 draft by the Ottawa Senators, Brassard is a project but worth the time. Never one to unravel during the game, Brassard relies on his instincts, which are top notch. Facing a tough path to the NHL because the Senators are the deepest team in the NHL at his position, Brassard will hone his skills in the minors which will only benefit him in the long run.

Fantasy Value- one out of three stars

First Star: Adam Erne (17) – Quebec Remparts – Winger - @adamerne73

Ranked as the 15th best overall prospect for the 2013 draft by the ISS, Erne is going to solve some team’s problems for a top six power forward. A straight line player, what Erne lacks in flash, he more than makes up for in effective simplicity. Erne is above average in his skating and shooting, and well above average with his smart, physical play. Averaging more than a point per game in his draft year, he is proving that he can handle the pressure of being mentioned as a potential first round pick.

Fantasy Value- two out of three stars

Led by these three players, along with captain Martin Lefebvre and 2013 draft prospect Anthony Duclair, look for the Remparts to make a deep run in the QMJHL playoffs and challenge for the Presidents Cup.

Next up for Three (Future) Star Selection will be the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks. See you next time.
