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.


Talent Analysis

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.

The Boston Bruins came in to the 2008 NHL Entry Draft in Ottawa with more than they left with. Armed with seven draft choices, they ended up with six draftees and, to date, just two NHL games in the famed Boston Bruins sweater.
