2008-09: Curtis Gedig was acquired by the Cowichan Valley Capitals from the Merrit Centennials mid-season, and finished the year with combined totals of four goals and 14 assists in 46 games to go along with 18 PIM’s. The blueliner started last season at the training camp of the WHL’s Calgary Hitmen, but was a late cut and was subsequently re-assigned to the BCHL. He was one of the youngest players eligible for the 2009 draft, and was subseqently selected by the Devils in the final round of the draft proceedings.
2009-10: Curtis continued his BCHL career with 21 points in 53 games between Cowichan and the Vernon Vipers, winning the BCHL Championship with Vernon.
2010-11: A seventh-round pick in 2009, Gedig made a smooth transition to college hockey, seeing top-four minutes as a freshman for Ohio State and being named to the CCHA’s All Rookie Team (Honorable Mention). Gedig appeared in 34 of 37 games and had 12 assists with 6 PMs. He finished +2 on a Buckeyes team that finished ninth in the 11-team CCHA and was eliminated in the first round of the league tournament.
2011-12: Gedig played on the top pairing for Ohio State in his second season – primarily paired with senior Sean Duddy. A defense-first defenseman, he chipped in offensively with 2 goals and 12 assists and was minus-one with 10 penalty minutes. Ohio State finished eighth in the CCHA and were swept by Notre Dame in a first round playoff series.
2012-13: Gedig was one of Ohio State’s top defensemen in his junior season; skating alongside freshman Craig Dalrymple on the Buckeyes’ top pairing. He played 32 games, missing time with a shoulder injury, and was +3 while scoring 3 goals with 12 assists and 6 penalty minutes. The Buckeyes were fourth in the CCHA despite finishing one game under .500 and had their hopes for an NCAA tournament berth dashed; losing 3-1 to Notre Dame in the CCHA semifinals.
Gedig is a well rounded defense prospect. In his junior season, he became the go-to blueliner for Ohio State in key situations. He plays a relatively low-risk, no-frills style of game, which makes him an effective penalty killer. Gedig doesn't have many standout traits. However, he makes a good first pass out of his end. As he’s grown in juniors, he’s grown confident jumping into the play and pushes the puck up the puck up the ice. He’ll likely never be a standout offensively, but he does have enough skill to not hurt a team while playing with the man advantage.
Gedig signed an amateur try-out contract with the New Jersey Devils.
