Prospect Profile: Jordan Fransoo

Jordan Fransoo (D-R, 6’2, DOB 1993, 7-186/11)
2009-10 SMHL Saskatoon Con 42-11-20-31 56pim (ppg 0.73) 2nd d-pts
2010-11 WHL Brandon 63-6-12-18 +4 72pim (ppg 0.28) 4th
2011-12 WHL Brandon/Victoria 71-3-18-21 -2 45pim (ppg 0.29) 2nd

An off-the-radar pick by the Sens (no one listed him), Fransoo was a teammate of fellow Senators draft pick Mark Stone, but was traded this year to Victoria mid-season.  He improved slightly on his point totals, but Fransoo is seen more of a shutdown defender.  He will return to the WHL next year to continue developing his game.  Quality scouting reports on him are lacking, but Hockey’s Future says “the Senators staff like his competitive level and tall frame, which should fill out as he matures. As with most late-round picks there is much uncertainty. Fransoo‘s work ethic and desire to succeed are both plusses. More of a defensive defenseman, he has shown the ability to contribute on the scoresheet.”  Here’s Sens scout Bob Lowes talking about Fransoo (2:20 onward), where he emphasizes his work ethic.  Here’s Fransoo in a fight and here’s Victoria coach Marc Habscheid briefly talking about his acquisition (2:53-3:03).

  3. […] Fransoo did not have a great season for Victoria and appears to be one of the few busts from Murray’s scouting staff.  Despite establishing a career high in goals and improving his points-per-game, he does not seem to have improved (a team worst -21).  I would be shocked if he was offered a contract.
