Highlights
1-time ECHL Kelly Cup Champion 1

David Desharnais is a small offensive-minded center, with excellent creativity and playmaking skills. Has soft hands, brilliant puck-handling ability and shows very good hand-eye coordination, which makes him also a solid face-off guy. David Desharnais is a quick skater with decent speed and despite his lack of size, the diminutive pivot battles hard along the boards for loose pucks and is hard to push of balance. Needs to play a more reliable two-way game, as he sometimes misses his assignments in the defensive zone, while chasing the puck and leaving his position. He is an excellent playmaking complement to a sniper on a scoring line. (by Rafik Soliman, February 2014)
