History

2011-12: Jordan Greenway attended Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Faribault, Minnesota, skating for the school’s bantam team. He had 126 points in 60 games. Greenway participated in USA Hockey’s Select 15 camp in Rochester, NY in July 2012. 

2012-13: Greenway was the second-leading scorer for the Shattuck-St. Mary’s U16 team behind Faribault native Kevin Dineen. In 46 games he scored 23 goals with 39 assists and 96 penalty minutes. The Sabres reached the USA Hockey U16 Nationals, finishing with a record of 32-17-6. Greenway was invited to the USA Hockey National Team Development Program evaluation camp in April and was offered a spot in the program for the 2013-14 season. He was selected by Plymouth in the first round (16th overall) of the 2013 OHL Priority Draft. 

2013-14: Greenway joined the USA Hockey NTDP in Ann Arbor, Michigan, skating for the program’s U17 team, and played for the USA U17 team in the 2013 World Hockey Challenge. In 52 games with the NTDP squad he scored 15 goals with 26 assists and 116 penalty minutes. Greenway scored 3 goals with 2 assists and 12 penalty minutes in six games at the World Hockey Challenge. The USA defeated Canada Quebec, 5-3, in the bronze medal game. Greenway committed to attending Boston University in 2015-16 in January 2014. 

2014-15: Greenway returned to Ann Arbor to skate for the NTDP U18 team and was part of the gold medal-winning USA team at the 2015 World Junior Championship. In 53 regular season games for the NTDP squad he scored 9 goals with 35 assists and 50 penalty minutes. He scored 1 goal with 6 assists and was +6 with 4 penalty minutes in seven games at the WJC. The USA defeated Finland, 2-1, in the gold medal game. Greenway skated for Team Grier in the 2014 All-American Prospects Game and was invited to the NHL Prospects Combine. He was ranked 47th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Minnesota in the second round (50th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft. 

2015-16: Greenway skated in all 39 games for Boston University in his freshman season. The Terriers’ fifth-leading scorer, he scored 5 goals with 21 assists and was +14 with 58 penalty minutes. Boston University finished tied with Massachusetts-Lowell for fourth in Hockey East and received an at-large bid to the NCAA West regional after being swept by the River Hawks in the conference quarterfinals. Denver defeated the Terriers, 7-2, in the regional semifinals. 

Talent Analysis

Jordan Greenway is a huge bodied player who possesses good skating for such a large frame and also impressive puck distribution skills.

Future

Greenway made a smooth jump from the USA NTDP to college hockey as an 18-year-old in 2015-16, skating in all 39 games for Boston University as a freshman. The Terriers were one of the top teams in college hockey before struggling in the post-season. With top scorers Daniel O'Regan (SJ) and Ahti Oksanen graduating there will be a need for players like Greenway to be team leaders in 2016-17. He is also a candidate to skate for the USA at the 2017 World Juniors. Greenway's combination of playmaking ability, size and technical skill suggests he can be a first or second line forward.
