Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A player with a lot smarts and vision. ... He has great poise with the puck. ... He also has really good on-ice vision; he sees the ice very well and makes his wingers better on the ice. Houde remains a bit of a long-term project, as he has a couple of things he'll need to improve on in the next couple of years, but the potential is there. He has work to do to improve his skating abilities, and his quickness and acceleration will need to be upgraded for sure." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
