Blackhawks Select Dillon Fournier in Round Two

In the second round of the 2012 NHL Draft, the Chicago Blackhawks selected defenseman Dillon Fournier.

Fournier had nine goals and 29 assists in 52 games with Rouyn-Noranda of the QMJHL. He is listed at 6-1 and 160 pounds.

McKeens had Fournier ranked 114th, and Central Scouting ranked him the 136th North American skater in this year’s draft. The Blackhawks selected him at 48th overall.

From McKeens:

Fournier is raw at the point, but with physical maturity he’s an attractive prospect due to the way he processes the game.

    Really? Stan, what inside information did you get that would force your hand to take this kid 3-4 rounds too soon? Please, O great Swami Stan, teach us.

    We need to relieve ourselves of non productive players such Frolic ,Brunett and others

    We have around 7 or 8 passengers that don’t belong with such a high scoring team.

    Stop kidding yourself about Crawford since he is not a proven winner.. Good days and bad days such as(where did the puck go???

    We need a coach to work players on the power play and penalty killing

    Kitchen such have been fired also but we are blinded

    It was remarked several places that this kid would go in the second round to a team that fell in love with him. He is on a bad team in a small market. Compared to Nathan Beaulieau. His size according to his junior club is 6’2 185, FWIW.

    No other way to justify it than Chicago was the team that fell in love with him. High reward project selection. I underwhelmingly approve.

    Stephen Johns is still at Notre Dame and Justin Holl is still at Minnesota because Rockford has a few guys battling for ice time. Remember, the Hawks have already signed Adam Clendening and Klas Dahlbeck this summer, so they’ll add them to a group including Ryan Stanton, Shawn Lalonde and Joe Lavin. And we don’t know where Dylan Olsen falls into the mix yet w/ 7 guys in Chicago (until someone’s traded)

    Dear Rocky

    Shane Doan is a leader and a Pit Bull. He would maje changes in many ways
    Sutor seems a hard person to land since he has his sights on other teams beside Chicago
    We have not had leadership for sometime .. We have too many stars looking at the score sheet to see if their names are in neon

    Here come the Hawks
