2007-08: In 62 games with the Guelph Storm (OHL), Holland registered eight goals and 15 assists for a total of 23 points. He added another helper in 10 postseason contests.
2008-09: Had a great sophomore season with Guelph, racking up 67 points (28 goals, 39 assists) in 68 games. Selected to play for the Western Conference All-Stars in the OHL All-Star Classic (two assists). Netted four goals in four postseason games. Appeared in the 2009 CHL Top Prospects Game and the U18 world championships.
2009-10: Plagued by injuries at the beginning of the season, Holland exploded in the winter, finishing the season with 30 goals, 50 assists, 9 powerplay goals, and 40 PIM in 59 games.
2010-11: Holland made an impressive pro debut with AHL Syracuse following his final OHL season and was called up for the Ducks' NHL playoff run though he did not appear in any games. Holland had a goal and assist in his first AHL game and scored twice in the Crunch's season-ending win over Hershey. Holland was the third-leading scorer for Guelph in his fourth OHL season; scoring 37 goals with 51 assists and was +6 with 57 PMs. He scored 15 of his 37 goals on the power play. In the Storm's six-game series with Saginaw he scored 3 goals with 6 assists and was -1 with 12 PMs.
2011-12: Holland made his NHL debut – appearing in four November games with the Ducks – and had a productive first pro season with Anaheim AHL affiliate Syracuse. He scored his first NHL goal (and only NHL point) in his second game, a game-winner in a 4-3 win over Vancouver. He was an even plus/minus with 2 penalty minutes; averaging 7:42 of ice time with Anaheim. Holland was the second-leading scorer for the AHL Crunch behind former Flyers prospect Patrick Maroon. He scored 23 goals with 37 assists in 71 games and was plus-eight with 59 penalty minutes. Syracuse finished fourth in the East Division but Holland missed the playoff series with Saint John's after suffering a concussion in a late season game against Connecticut.
Holland has begun to put his game together in the past couple of seasons. Where he was a player who could have been described as having all the tools but no tool box, Holland has evened out his effort and consistency. He is a big player with a soft touch. Although he is more of a shoot-first center, he has the vision and passing skills to be a respectable setup man.
The Ducks think Holland is a scorer and would sooner keep him in a prominent role in the AHL than put him in a bottom-six role on the main roster. With some age in their top nine, it will not be long before Holland gets an opportunity to crack Anaheim’s lineup as a regular.
