Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "It's not often that a 16-year-old CHL rookie goalie wins the starter's job in training camp and plays 50 games, but Gravel won his coach's confidence early on and repaid him in the playoffs with a great effort -- posting a .924 save percentage and almost backstopping Halifax to a huge upset over the defending QMJHL champions." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "Gravel has all the tools to become a solid goaltender at the next level. He's calm, big and athletic. He won the No. 1 goaltender job during the season, and had some great performances in the first round of the playoffs against Rouyn-Noranda. He's currently the top goaltender from the QMJHL for the 2018 NHL Entry Draft." (Jerome Berube, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Won the starting job in Halifax in the first half of the season, and saw a lot of pucks due to playing in front of a young and inexperienced team ... Has a great demeanor in his crease. He's very calm and doesn’t get rattled by a lot of things. With his poise, he didn’t look like a 16-year-old rookie (in 2016-17). He's big and large; he covers a lot of space in front of his net, and he's also quite good at covering the lower part of the net with his lateral agility and athletic ability. The young goaltender showed good rebound-control, and with his height, is capable of tracking the puck well with traffic in front of him. He will also get low to find the puck on some occasions. ... (Halifax) will be even better with their young corps, and Gravel will be a key piece of the puzzle." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Offers the type of size-athleticism combination NHL clubs are searching for." (Red Line Report)
