• In 2010-11, he led all Ontario Hockey League rookies with 53 assists and was fourth with 75 points (22-53--75) in 66 games. Scheifele finished the season strong – he had 11 of his 22 goals in the last 18 games.

• Scheifele’s breakout season continued at the 2011 Under-18 World Championships. He led all Canadian forwards and was named one of Team Canada’s best players of the tournament after he recorded six goals and eight points (6-2--8) in seven games.

• He had accepted a four-year scholarship to Cornell University after completing a successful year playing Junior B with the Kitchener Dutchmen in 2009-10, but a trade from Saginaw to Barrie changed the course of his career and he decided to play in the OHL with Barrie.

• He played the first six years of 'AAA' hockey, up to minor bantam, on defense. He played one game on forward and he hasn't returned to the blue line since -- "One game my coach decided to put me on forward because we were kind of struggling offensively, I think I got four goals, so he decided to keep me up for a couple games, and I started to like it".

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
