Montreal Canadiens prospect Jeremiah Addison of the Windsor Spitfires (Ontario Hockey League) is on pace for 91 points this season. Addison was selected 207th overall in the 7th and final round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Although being drafted by the Saginaw Spirit 12th overall in the 1st round of the 2012 OHL draft, many may remember him as a member of the Ottawa 67’s (OHL) at the time of his NHL draft.
On August 16th, 2016, the 67’s sent Addison and a 15th round pick (2018) to Windsor in exchange for two conditional draft picks and a 15th round pick (2018).
Jeremiah Addison Position: Left Wing Age: 20 Birthplace: Brampton, ON, Canada Height: 6'0" Weight: 190lbs 2016-17 Stats: 7 Goals + 6 Assists = 13 Points in 9 Games
Addison has been slightly improving each year and although still early in the season, has hit a clear jump in offensive production this season compared to his time in Saginaw and Ottawa.
We would like to stress that it is early in the season, but that doesn’t change the fact that Addison is averaging 1.44 points per game in Windsor. Let’s imagine for a second that Addison actually does meet his current projected stats. 49 goals beats his previous career high by 22, beats his previous career high in assists by 13, points by 35 and penalty minutes by 10. Even if he were to cool down, Addison is off to a dominating start.
The Windsor Spitfires will already have the eyes of Habs fans everywhere this season as 2016 first round pick Mikhail Sergachev has been re-assigned back to his junior hockey club. But Addison has definitely earned a look as well, especially if he keeps up this dominance.
Before the 2016-17 OHL season even began, the Spitfires were considered a favourite for the Ontario Hockey League championship. Sitting with a 10-4-0 record through 14 games, it’s looking pretty good for them. Especially helpful that reigning OHL Most Outstanding Defenceman Sergachev is returning to them. Windsor has secured one of four spots in the 2017 Mastercard Memorial Cup after being granted the right to host the tournament. Also on the team with Sergachev and Addison includes:
We wish Habs prospect Jeremiah Addison great success on the rest of his season and congratulate him on his hot start. Junior hockey is generally an affordable, family-friendly environment with highly competitive hockey.
