2010-11: Hudon scored 10 goals with 10 assists in 22 games in his third season at Choate Rosemary Hall. Ranked 74th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings, Hudon was selected in the fifth round (145th overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft.
2011-12: Began the school year at Cornell but left school before the season started. He eventually joined the Victoriaville Tigres in the QMJHL – skating in 34 games. Playing in a lower line role, he scored 3 goals with 2 assists and was minus-three with 29 penalty minutes. The Tigres reached the playoffs, finishing second in the East Division, and Hudon was minus-two with 2 penalties in the four game series with Baie-Comeau.
2012-13: Hudon skated for Victoriaville in his second season in the QMJHL. In 65 regular season games he scored 15 goals with 20 assists and was -1 with 63 penalty minutes. He scored seven goals on the Tigres power play. Victoriaville finished fourth in the East Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Hudon scored 6 goals with 1 assist and was +1 with 6 penalty minutes in nine playoff games.
A big, strong winger who models his game after Boston’s Milan Lucic, Hudon is also a very intelligent person and a cerebral talent. He plays a physical, positionally sound, responsible game.
A return to the QMJHL was met with moderate success for Hudon, who recorded 31 points for the Victoriaville Tigres in 2013-14. Detroit retains his rights through the end of the 2014-15 season, though it appears unlikely that they will sign him.
