Born June 9, 1988 in Dorval, Quebec, Canada
Defenseman for the San Jose Sharks
Emma and I were talking about him last night, and my subconscious decided that he should be today’s profile. Jason played junior hockey in the QMJHL, first with the Moncton Wildcats and then with the Victoriaville Tigres. In his final year in juniors, he was the leading defenseman with 64 points in 67 games, and it was after that final year that he was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the 2008 draft. After that, he spent his first pro year with the Worcester Sharks.
He made his debut with the big boys in the 2009-10 season and scored his first point On October 3, 2009 with an assist against the Anaheim Ducks. His first goal just happened to come a month later against the Cristobal Huet and the Chicago Blackhawks, and he got his first playoff goal against them in the 2010 playoffs (hmm, how’d that go?). Last year was his first full year on the roster, and he had 24 points, and this year he has 11 points, including his two goals against my boys. Ah well, I can’t deny talent.
