In 40 regular season games he scored 2 goal with 9 assists and 93 penalty minutes. He scored 3 goals with 3 assists and had 28 penalty minutes in seven playoff games. Haydon was selected by Niagara in the first round (20th overall) of the 2012 OHL Priority Draft.

Niagara finished fourth in the Central Division and lost to Oshawa in a first round playoff series. Haydon appeared in three playoff games and was -1 with 1 assist and 2 penalty minutes.
