If you’ve been following along, I’ve been pretty successful with this new CHL set from Upper Deck and it was released at the end of the season! I fully expect many of the players in the checklist to continue on with their junior careers or proceed to the AHL.
Jeremy McKenna is currently a forward for the Moncton Wildcats, a team out of the QMJHL of the CHL. He was able to be drafted in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft but was passed by all teams in all rounds. Hailing from Canmore, AB, Jeremy had a very productive 2017/18 junior hockey season. In his rookie season with the Wildcats, Jeremy netted 26 points but tripled (yes, tripled) the following season with 77 points. He also earned the “A” which clearly speaks the the leadership that Jeremy possesses.
Considering Jeremy was passed over this draft, I fully expect him to go back to the Wildcats and lead them through next season. The team did make significant improvements, with Jeremy leading the way, to a quarterfinal birth.
There is an outside chance that Jeremy does make his way on to the radar, namely the Arizona Coyotes, depending on how well he performs at development camp. It’s great to see (well, I guess read) that Jeremy is going to use not being drafted as a way to continue on his NHL dreams.
Gettin’ the auto
I sent this card to him directly and he quickly returned it back to me although I’ve had success in the past with the Moncton Wildcats. If you’re looking for autographs from players on the team, send them via the Wildcats and they’ll be sure to return it back to you.
