Brandon Duhaime is a 6'1" winger from the Tri-City Storm. A native of Parkland, Florida, one of a just a couple players taken from Parkland, Florida this draft class. He scored 10 goals and had 22 assists in 39 games for the Steel this season and added 5 more goals and 5 more assists with the Storm. He will head to Providence College next season. Traded mid-season from the Chicago Steel, and is credited with being a big factor for the Storm in their run to the Clark Cup Final.

He's a tow-way forward that helped the Storm defend a Dubuqe power play that was around 30 percent heading into the Clark Cup Final. He is tenacious on defense and can add a bit of a scoring touch. He has decent hands and did this in the USHL playoffs:

Known as a tough kid to play against, he can and will oblige in dropping the gloves. Just searching his name on the internet and you see videos for hokeyfights.com pop up. He is the son of former Washington Capitals draft pick from 1991 Trevor Duhaime, who was selected 190th overall.

ISS had this to say about Duhaime in their February Release of Risers and Fallers:

Good size winger with good puck skills and hockey IQ that plays with a little edge. Has the ability to see the play developing well offensively. Understand his position defensively and very reliable.
