Dillon Fournier, Defenseman
DOB: 06/15/1994 Ht: 6’2 Wt: 175
Drafted: 2nd round (48th overall) in 2012 – Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL)
Fournier was the first overall pick in the 2010 QMJHL draft by Lewiston, and posted 14 points in 60 games during his first junior season. He progressed nicely in spite of a shoulder injury limiting him to 52 games. Fournier posted 38 points (nine goals, 29 assists) with Rouyn-Noranda.
At the 2012 NHL Draft, Blackhawks scouting director Mark Kelley said, “[Fournier] has good size and he’s really, really comfortable with the puck. He plays an aggressive-type gap style. I wouldn’t say he’s a big physical guy but he competes hard and battles hard.”
