• Nicknamed ‘Iron’ Maidens, he represented Canada at the 2011 Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament and Team Ontario at the 2011 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. He was unable to play in the Under-17 tournament due to injury, but still received a medal.
• Prior to making the jump to the OHL, Maidens had a 63-goal season with the Hamilton Minor Midget AAA Bulldogs in 2009-10. He had previously been billeting in Toronto to play with the Young Nationals, but made the switch to be closer to home for one season.
I challenged him to a goalie fight when we chatted before the game, but he didn't want to go. It was strange to see him at the other end of the ice, but I'm sure he felt the same way looking down at our end.
