Originally a 13th round draft pick from New Liskeard, Ont., Justin Brazeau will go down as one of the most prolific scorers in North Bay Battalion franchise history.
The 6-foot-6, 226Ib overage winger became the OHL’s second 50-goal scorer of the 2018-19 season on Saturday in Windsor before netting his 51st on Sunday afternoon in London to set a new single season franchise record.
Brazeau surpasses Mike Amadio‘s 2015-16 performance of 50 goals in the Battalion all-time record book and currently sits fifth in league scoring with 94 points (51-43–94) over 59 games.
His 118 career goals and 219 points are both the most by any player to suit up for the North Bay Battalion. He sits third in Battalion all-time goal scoring behind Wojtek Wolski (2002-06, 130) and Barclay Goodrow (2009-14, 127).
Currently in search of a pro contract, Brazeau attended camp with the San Jose Sharks in September.
With nine games remaining on the regular season schedule, Brazeau is on pace to record the first 100-point season in North Bay Battalion history and the franchise’s first since Wolski put up 128 points in 2005-06.
