2009-10: Tim Harrison assumed a full-time role as a sophomore at Massachusetts’ Duxbury High School after appearing in a few games as a freshman. He also played for the Bay State Breakers bantam team.

2010-11: Harrison skated for Duxbury High as a junior as the Green Dragons reached the post-season for the first time since 2007-08. Duxbury scored upset wins in its first two playoff games before falling to Springfield Cathedral in the Division 1 South sectional semifinals.

2011-12: Harrison transferred to the Dexter School in Brookline, Massachusetts, repeating his junior year. He skated in 21 games, scoring 13 goals with 13 assists. Dexter reached the finals of the New England Prep School Ice Hockey Association small division, falling to eventual champion Kimball Union. Harrrison participated in the Road to College Showcase at Babson College in June.

2012-13: Harrison skated on one of the top lines in New England Prep School hockey in his senior season at Dexter. Playing alongside Trevor Fidler (Harvard recruit) and sophomore Ryan Donato, he scored 21 goals with 22 assists in 28 games. Dexter participated in the Stuart/Corkery Tournament for the top prep school’s in New England, falling to eventual runner -up Kent in the quarterfinals. Harrison committed to playing college hockey at Colgate in 2013-14. In his second year of draft eligibility, he was not among the 2010 North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings when he was selected by Calgary in the sixth round (157th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.

2013-14: Harrison played in 34 of 39 games for Colgate University  in his freshman season. He had 5 assists and was -3 with 20 penalty minutes. The Raiders finished second in ECAC Hockey and reached the conference championship with a 3-2 double overtime victory over Quinnipiac in the semifinals. Colgate received an at-large bid to the NCAA Midwest Regional after a 5-2 loss to Union in the ECAC Hockey final and fell 1-0 to Ferris State in a regional semifinal game. 

2014-15: Harrison scored 7 goals with 4 assists and was -3 with 24 penalty minutes in 37 games for Colgate University as a sophomore. He scored three of his six goals on the Raiders’ power play.  Colgate finished tied with Dartmouth for fourth in ECAC Hockey. The Raiders swept Dartmouth in a conference quarterfinal series and defeated St. Lawrence, 4-3, in overtime to reach the ECAC Championship game but did not receive an NCAA tournament bid after a 4-2 loss to Harvard in the championship game.

Talent Analysis

Harrison is a big power forward that has quick hands, a high hockey IQ, and a large frame to play the physical game. He will have to continue to work on his skating and speed in order to fully utilize his size and skills. He should continue to grow physically and mentally during his college career at Colgate. Harrison relied on his scoring instincts and physical dominance to put up big numbers in prep school hockey. His mobility and technical skills must continue to mature if he is to have that same success.


Harrison is entering his junior season at Colgate in 2015-16. He began to show some scoring ability for the Raiders in the second half after playing primarily a third and fourth line role in his first two seasons. A bit of a long-term project, Harrison does not appear to be a naturally gifted scorer but has some potential as a two-way forward with size at the pro level.
