History

2012-13: Deven Sideroff signed a contract with the WHL’s Kamloops Blazers as a 15-year-old, appearing in two games with Kamloops in March following his season at the Okanagan Hockey Academy in British Columbia. Sideroff scored 1 goal with 1 assist and was +3 with no penalties in three games with the Blazers. Splitting the season between the OHA prep and midget teams, he scored 4 goals with 8 assists and 22 penalty minutes in 13 prep games.

2013-14: Sideroff appeared in 12 WHL games with Kamloops and was a dominant scorer playing for the Okanagan Hockey Academy’s prep and midget teams. He scored 2 goals with 4 assists and was -3 with 6 penalty minutes skating for the Blazers. Sideroff scored 20 goals with 29 assists and 46 penalty minutes in 27 games for the OHA prep team. He played 42 games for the school’s midget team and scored 32 goals with 42 assists and 72 penalty minutes.

2014-15: Sideroff skated in 64 of 72 regular season games for Kamloops in his first full WHL season and played for the Canada U18 team at the 2015 World Juniors in Switzerland. He was tied with Collin Shirley for third on the Blazers with 42 points, scoring 17 goals with 25 assists, and was +18 with 25 penalty minutes. Kamloops finished fourth in the B.C. Division, two points behind Tri-City for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Sideroff scored 3 goals with 1 assist and had an even plus/minus with 12 penalty minutes in seven games at the WJC. Canada defeated Switzerland in the bronze medal game. Sideroff was ranked 134th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Anaheim in the third round (84th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Sideroff is a high energy player who can play in all situations and gets under the opponent's skin. Sideroff does not overwhelm with his technical skills or prolific offensive game but is reliable in all three zones and plays with consistent effort.

Future

Sideroff is among the leading scorers for Kamloops in 2015-16 in his second season with the Blazers. Kamloops is battling Prince George, Portland, Spokane and Tri-City for the final Western Conference playoff spots. Still maturing physically and developing both his technical and tactical game, Sideroff projects as a solid lower line forward at the NHL level.
