Pilon has had a strong start to his draft season, leading all Western Hockey League blueliners in points with six, including two goals and four assists. He’s also recorded a plus-3 rating through the first four games of the season.
“Pilon is a strong two-way defenseman that has shown early in the year that he is going to make some noise in Brandon,” Future Considerations’ Western Hockey League head scout Zenon Herasymiuk said. “He has the size, mobility, and smarts to be drafted very highly in the 2015 NHL Draft.”
The 17-year-old is entering his third full season in the WHL and registered seven goals and 36 points in 66 games split between the Wheat Kings and Lethbridge Hurricanes last season. The Duck Lake, SK product was originally selected third overall in the 2011 Bantam Draft by the Hurricanes.
He’s 21st in Future Considerations’ October ranking for the 2015 NHL Draft.
Also considered for the award was Gatineau Olympiques defenseman Alexandre Carrier, who recorded seven assists in seven games to start his QMJHL season.
