Oklahoma City Barons Sign Nicholas Tremblay

The Barons grab a high-scoring centre from the Bruins' organization

From the Barons' team website:

The Oklahoma City Barons agreed to terms with forward Nicholas Tremblay on an American Hockey League contract, General Manager Bill Scott announced today.

Tremblay, a 6-0, 187-pounder from Candiac, Quebec, played the majority of last season with the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL. In 29 games with the Condors, the 25-year old scored 29 points (16-13-29). Tremblay has experience in the AHL, playing a total of nine games over two seasons with the Providence Bruins where he scored two points (1-1-2).

Prior to turning pro, Tremblay played 143 games over four seasons at Clarkson University. With the Golden Knights, he scored 88 points (33-55-88) and served 68 penalty minutes. He improved his point production in each season at Clarkson, with his best season coming during the 2011-12 season when he led the Golden Knights with 17 goals and 36 points.

Hockeys Future describes him like Todd Marchant:

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.

Neal Livingston at Tend The Farm has the analysis:

As a good friend, and fellow contributor put it, "Imagine if Curtis Hamilton or Tyler Pitlick had played four years of college hockey?" Great question. An answer we’ll never get, but one worth pondering.

For Tremblay, he’ll probably play a defensive heavy centering role that was lost when Chris VandeVelde departed the team this off season. That’s a nice piece to have. A guy who can play defensive centering minutes, but just might give you a scoring threat. I’d put him down for at least 20+ points in the upcoming season
