There was buzz surrounding Reid Boucher's arrival to professional hockey. In 2012-13 while playing for Sarnia of the OHL, he broke Steven Stamko's 58-goal team record, potting 62 goals.
The winger began the season in Albany and had a four-game points streak between Oct. 23-30 and a five-game run between Nov. 20-30. The second streak ended when he was recalled by New Jersey and made his NHL debut on Dec. 4 against Montreal. During that game he registered and assist and a shootout goal. Two weeks later, he netted his first career NHL goal on Dec. 18 against Ottawa.
In the AHL, Boucher produced 22 goals and 16 assists for 38 points in 56 outings. Additionally, he tied Mike Sislo with a team-leading seven power-play goals.
What Was Said by Boucher...
I thought it was a good year. I wanted to do a little bit more points wise. Overall, it was a good year. I learned a lot and had fun.Reid Boucher on the season (May 5, 2014)
I wasn't expecting that this year. I was just looking forward to a good year in the American League and I got the call fortunately. I just tried to make the most out of it.Reid Boucher on playing in the NHL (May 5, 2014)
