Danault led the Tigres in the QMJHL playoffs with 15 points in nine games, as the Tigres lost to the Saint John Sea Dogs, the league champions. He captained the Tigres this season and was also apart of the 2010 Ivan Hlinka tournament.
Here is some insight from his coach Yanick Jean:
"The thing about Danault is he's a tremendous worker. He's dedicated to the game, but now he's taking more and more leadership and it's contagious. He has the admiration of every single one of his teammates just on how hard he works. He'll bring work ethic, dedication and leadership. His passion for the game is unique because he's the most passionate kid I've ever coached. He plays with pride; he's not the type of kid who thinks he's better than the next guy, but he challenges himself to be as good if not better."
