Windsor Spitfires head coach Bob Boughner
“Justin’s offensive instincts are some of the very best I’ve seen in the OHL. He is developing confidence in taking pucks to the net and is a valuable asset to have on the power play. He has a quick release when shooting the puck and is a pure goal scorer.”
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
