History

2011-12: Jeremiah Addison appeared in one junior A game with the Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Brampton Capitals, scoring a goal in his only OJHL game, and played for the Toronto Marlboros minor midget AAA team. He scored 28 goals with 18 assists and 37 penalty minutes in 32 games for Toronto. Addison had 6 goals with 1 assist and 20 penalty minutes in seven games with the Marboros at the OHL Cup. He was selected by Saginaw in the first round (12th overall) in the 2012 OHL Priority Draft. 

2012-13: Addison was one of four Saginaw players to play in all 68 games in his first OHL season with the Spirit. He scored 6 goals with 10 assists and was -18 with 42 penalty minutes. Saginaw finished fourth in the West Division and was swept by London in a first-round playoff series. Addison was -3 with no points nor penalties in four playoff games. 

2013-14: Addison returned to Saginaw for his second season with the Spirit. In 61 regular season games he scored 7 goals with 10 assists and was +2 with 55 penalty minutes. Saginaw finished third in the West Division, falling to Erie in a first-round playoff series. Addison was -4 with no points nor penalties in five playoff games. 

2014-15: Addison was acquired by the Ottawa 67s as part of a trade for Connor Brown in August. The team’s third-leading scorer behind Dante Salituro and Flyers’ prospect Travis Konecny, he scored 19 goals with 28 assists in 63 games and was +3 with 49 penalty minutes. Ottawa finished second in the East Division, falling to Niagara in a first-round playoff series. Addison scored 6 goals with 4 assists and was -1 with 7 penalty minutes in six playoff games. Ranked 129th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings, he was selected by Montreal in the seventh round (207th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft. 

2015-16: Addison made his pro hockey debut — skating in four games with the AHL’s St. John IceCaps on an amateur tryout contract in April following his OHL season with the Ottawa 67’s. He had 1 assist and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes playing for the IceCaps. Addison was second to Dante Salituro in scoring for Ottawa in his fourth OHL season. He scored 27 goals with 29 assists (both career highs) and was -3 with 74 penalty minutes in 66 regular season games. The 67’s finished second to Kingston in the East Division, falling to Niagara in a first-round playoff series. Addison scored 1 goal with 2 assists and was -1 with 8 penalty minutes in four playoff games, missing Game 2 of the five-game series.

Talent Analysis

Addison is an excellent defensive forward at the junior level, one who can be counted on in penalty-killing situations. His work in the defensive end has gained him notoriety in the OHL. He is a good skater, but can develop that aspect of his game more, and his anticipation to cut off passes and read the play makes him very dangerous in the neutral zone. Last season, his offensive abilities took a monumental leap, and he put up more points in Ottawa than he had the previous two seasons combined with the Saginaw Spirit. Addison will continue working on that side of his game with the 67's while continuing to excel in his own end, becoming the type of player that Mike Richards once was.

Future

Addison returned to the Ottawa 67's for his fourth OHL season in 2015-16, joining Montreal AHL affiliate St. John's for four games in April on an amateur tryout contract following the season. Yet to sign an entry-level contract with Montreal, he could return to the OHL for an overage season in 2016-17 but could begin his pro career either with the AHL's IceCaps or in the ECHL. Addison's combination of physical play and timely scoring was a big part of Ottawa's turnaround and he has started to emerge as a legitimate second or third line forward prospect.

When Montreal Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk was drafted in 2012, most NHL pundits referred to the situation as a major shake-up. One thing that did not change was the man in power, Trevor Timmins, who was majorly responsible for how the Canadiens drafted over the last decade or so. Since 2003, he has aided in re-stocking the historic franchise’s cupboards. Read more»
