He was tied for fourth in playoff goals (22) and was fifth in points (45)… Last year, the forward from Six Nations won the Joe Nieuwendyk Award as the 2010 Junior "A" Rookie of the Year... In 2009, he played in 13 games with the Six Nations Jr. "B" Rebels, scoring three goals while adding eight assists, as he split his time with the Six Nations Midgets, Midget Iroquois Nationals and the Rebels.
