Maxime Legault goes to Buffalo at #194

With their final pick of the day, the Sabres have selected tough, 20-year old RW Maxime Legault of the Shawinigan Cataractes. Standing 6'2, 195-pounds, Legault had a coming out party in the 2009 QMJHL playoffs, scoring 10 goals including two short-handed in the Cats 21-game run to the President's Cup final. A late-rising role player, Legault registered 13 regular season fights over the past two seasons while potting a total of 34 goals and 54 points in that 94-game span. He made his hay this season as a leader when given regular ice time, earning a +22 while being a guy who finished plays low. We said "team toughness" would be a theme this draft, and the Sabres certainly did not disappoint.
