2023 NHL Draft Prospect Profile: Coulson Pitre

(Photo by Natalie Shaver/OHL Images)

The Scouting Report:

Coulson Pitre from Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, born on December 13th, 2004, is a draft-eligible prospect for the 2023 NHL entry draft in Nashville. Another center-depth prospect that stands out because he’s incredibly intelligent when he’s on the ice. Listed at 6’1″ and 172 pounds, Pitre scored nearly at a point-per-game pace in his two seasons with the Flint Firebirds. Pitre is also not afraid to play physically and stands up for himself and his teammates, though he doesn’t go out of his way to play in this style.

Ranked #80 by Inside The Rink
Ranked #37 by NHL Central Scouting (NA Skaters)
Ranked #63 by TSN/Craig Button
Ranked #81 by Draft Prospects Hockey
Ranked #63 by Daily Faceoff
Ranked #67 by TSN/Bob McKenzie

Conrad Jack of Inside the Rink has Coulson Pitre projected at 62nd overall.

Coulson Pitre likely won’t see the third round of the draft this year, as his 104 points in 111 games with the Flint Firebirds across two seasons is a big accomplishment. Teams will draft him with the hopes that he transfers his game to the NHL level.

Diving Deeper:

Let’s take a deeper dive into Coulson Pitre’s attributes and areas for improvement.

High Hockey IQ:

Coulson Pitre is an incredibly smart hockey player, first and foremost. He’s an incredibly fast skater and is a threat on the rush. Considered to be a sleeper player in this draft, Coulson Pitre resembles a strong player who can play up and down the lineup. During the CHL top prospects game, he played on Connor Bedard’s wing and seemed like it was an excellent fit. This is a target for teams with a ton of high-end talent to attempt to draft. Coulson Pitre can elevate his linemates, and this is something teams will certainly look for.

Areas for Improvement:

Coulson Pitre is physically capable of playing a game that requires him to be a bit meaner at times, but he needs to put some extra muscle on to keep that playstyle going. Another big area that Pitre needs to improve in is his playmaking, rather than forcing plays, a player must adapt to the environment around him.

Prospect Potential:

I think that with the right development and proper attention to what needs to be worked on to improve himself as a player, Coulson Pitre could be a great middle-six center playing on one or both of the special team units.

Final Thoughts:

Coulson Pitre is a great prospect heading into the 2023 NHL draft in Nashville, and I think that he can use his skating to his advantage when in the NHL. He has the footspeed to be great and propel championship-winning teams to greatness. Coulson Pitre is almost certainly going to be a hot commodity come draft day.
