History

From Ste-Sophie, Québec, Aubin has played three entire seasons with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies and became one of the most talented players of the QMJHL. In his rookie season, he scored 14 goals and 20 assists for 34 points.

The following year, Aubin was rewarded with more ice time and proved his coach right recording 65 points in 70 games. He found the net 29 times and had 36 helpers along with 116 penalty minutes.

2004-05: His offensive progression continued  as he was the scoring leader alongside Columbus’ Philippe Dupuis with 84 points. He scored 41 goals and 43 assists in 70 games, fifth in the league for goals. He was also second in the league for game-winning goals with 10.

2005-06: Aubin lived the ultimate junior dream, lifting the Memorial Cup over his head. He started the year in Rouyn-Noranda, still up to his standards of performing offensively. He netted 31 goals and helped 33 teammates in 40 games. Huskies management ready for a rebuilding, Aubin was a prime candidate to leave for a better team. Patrick Roy took notice and acquired Aubin in a major transaction that solidified the Quebec Remparts forward. The right winger went on to score 32 more goals and 46 assists in 32 games in Quebec City. He ended the year with 117 points, sixth in the league in scoring. 

2006-07: Aubin again broke the 50-goal barrier this season, scoring 51 in 68 games. He finished with 105 points and added three goals and five assists in a first-round playoff exit. Aubin was named CHL Player of the Week in October after he registered nine goals and five assists in a four-game span.

2007-08: In his first full season with the club, Aubin appeared in 75 games with the Toronto Marlies (AHL). He finished the season with 22 points (10+12) and 76 PIM. In 17 Calder Cup Playoff games, he netted five more goals.
