History

Jason Gregoire played with the Lincoln Stars for the 2006-07 season where he scored just over a point per game. He suffered an ankle injury and missed half the season in order to undergo surgery.

2007-08: In his second season with the Lincoln Stars (USHL), Gregoire nearly doubled his points from the previous season, finished with 69 points  in 54 games. He added an additional 12 points (3+9) to his total in eight playoff appearances.  Named the 2008 USHL Player of the Year and the Forward of the Year.

2008-09: He made a solid debut, at North Dakota, scoring 12 goals and 17 assists in 42 games as a freshman for the Fighting Sioux.

2009-10: Another season with North Dakota brought more expectations, as Gregoire would go on to tally 20 goals and 17 assists. He would be named to the NCAA (WCHA) All-Academic Team and win the NCAA (WCHA) Championship with North Dakota.

2010-11: Prior to declaring his free agency, Gregoire increased his marketability with an astoundingly good junior year at the University of North Dakota. Playing on the top lines for a powerhouse team, Gregoire scored 25 goals in 35 games and added 18 assists, good for third on the team. Despite missing games through injury, Gregoire ensured he had the attention of NHL General Managers with a display of effective two-way hockey and flashes of some sublime skills.

2011-12: A veteran lineup and some nagging injuries made it difficult for Gregoire to find consistent ice time for Winnipeg AHL affiliate St. John's in his first pro season. He skated in 44 regular season games for the IceCaps and had 6 goals with 8 assists; finishing plus-four with 13 penalty minutes. St. John's finished first in the Atlantic Division and reached the Eastern Confernce finals. Gregoire did not see any action in the playoffs.

 

Talent Analysis

Gregoire has good hands and is a goal scorer. He is also well-rounded. He will pay the price to make a play and leads by example by doing so.

 

Future

A coach’s dream, the well-rounded and hard-working Gregoire seems certain to get an NHL shot in due course.
