2010-11: Nick Moutrey played for the York Simcoe Express midget minor team and skated for Team Ontario in the 2011 Canada Winter Games. In 40 games for the Express he score 43 goals with 46 assists. He had 1 assist and 4 penalty minutes in six games at the Canada Winter Games. Moutrey was selected by Saginaw in the first round (15th overall) of the 2011 OHL Priority Draft.
2011-12: Moutrey skated in 66 games for Saginaw as a 16-year-old in his first OHL season. He scored 2 goals with 7 assists and was -12 with 46 penalty minutes.

2012-13: Moutrey displayed an offensive component to his game in his second season with Saginaw. He scored 16 goals with 27 assists in 65 games and was +2 with 44 penalty minutes. The Spirit made the playoffs, finishing fourth in the West Division, but were swept by Memorial Cup-bound London in the first round. Moutrey was scoreless and -5 with 12 penalty minutes in four playoff games. He was ranked 58th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2013 NHL Draft.
At 6’1 and over 200 pounds, Moutrey has the size that is attractive for prospective NHL forwards, but he does not consistently play that power-forward game that would make him command attention.
He blossomed this year offensively, with 16 goals in 65 games, but needs to play more of a physical role to take that next step. He’s another one of those high-risk prospects.
Moutrey will fine tune has passing game as he returns to Saginaw for his third season. The physically solid winger needs to be a force in the playoffs because he has been held scoreless through 16 postseason games over the past two years.
