2006-07: This was Nick Tremblay’s second season with the College Champlain Cougars (QJAHL), which saw the center net 26 goals and as many assists in 53 games.
2007-08: In 57 games with Smiths Falls (CJHL), the center scored 51 and a remarkable 110 points (league high), with each of those numbers being career-highs for Tremblay. An injury sidelined the CJHL MVP, which makes one wonder how many points he would have finished with had he stayed healthy.
2008-09: This was Tremblay’s first season with Clarkson University (ECAC), where he scored four goals and 11 points in 36 games as a rookie with the Golden Knights. More importantly, he stayed injury free.
2009-10: Tremblay played in 37 games for Clarkson, scoring 3 goals and adding 17 assists for 20 points.
2010-11: Tremblay scored 10 goals with 9 assists and 18 PMs as a junior for Clarkson. He scored 4 of his 10 goals on the power play. Tremblay had a -13 plus/minus for a Clarkson team that struggled through a 15-19-2 season and was eliminated by Harvard in a two-game sweep in the first round of the ECAC Hockey playoffs.
2011-12: Tremblay made his pro debut with the AHL Providence Bruins on an amateur tryout contract following his senior season at Clarkson. In four games with Providence he had 1 goal and 1 assist and was plus-two with 2 penalty minutes. Providence missed the AHL playoffs; finishing fourth in the Atlantic Division. Tremblay was the leading scorer for Clarkson as a senior, scoring 17 goals with 19 assists in 37 games, and was plus-three with 16 penalty minutes. Six of his 17 goals came on the Golden Knights power play. Clarkson finished 15-15-6 in the regular season under first year head coach Casey Jones, the Golden Knights first non-losing season since 2007-08. Tremblay was not tendered a qualifying offer by the Bruins in June 2012 — becoming an unrestricted free agent.
Tremblay has tremendous speed and skating ability but he doesn’t have the hands to match. May need to reinvent himself as a defensive specialist if he’s to succeed in the pro game.
Signed a contract to play in the ECHL, does not appear to be a serious NHL prospect.
