Joel Champagne has finished his final year in the CHL with the PEI Rocket. He uses his size to work corners and in front of net but lacks scoring ability.
Blessed with great size, Champagne already has the physical makeup of a professional hockey player. However, appearances can be deceiving and despite his visible attributes, he is very much a project. Willing to use his body to his advantage on the ice, Champagne is a hard object to move when he plants himself in front of the net. As might be expected, his foot speed and puck skills still need work. He has good two-way ability, and his adept ability at winning face-offs will prove beneficial further down the line.
