|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Not many players can say that they scored 60 goals in a season on any level. Boucher, though, is one of them.
It happened during the 2012-13 season while playing for the Sarnia Sting of the OHL. He potted 62 for them to set a
new team record, and helped bring the team to the OHL playoffs, where they lost to the Plymouth Whalers in the first
For a team that is in desperate need of scoring, expectations are pretty high now for Boucher, probably TOO high.
Although he did have a good first pro season, netting 22 for Albany (after scoring 3 during his PTO the season before)
and also scoring 2 when he was called up to New Jersey for a handful of games.
I'm gonna have to double check, but I think he was also the only Devil to score a shootout goal all season.
The scoring instincts are there, that's for sure.
The 16-17 season, for him, was a do-or-die season, from where I sat. He had struggled to even get in the lineup, and
when he did get in, he struggled to produce.
In order to get in some game action, he was waived with the intent of sending him to Albany. His destination ended up
being Nashville, though. He only played 3 games with the Predators, though; he also played a few with the Milwaukee
Admirals through a conditioning assignment.
He was waived by the Predators after a month, I'm guessing with the same intent... and he was reclaimed by Ray
Shero. "Okay, let's try this again..." Vancouver claimed him to stop a second attempt at an Albany assignment. I just
looked as I was writing this: he hadn't made his Canucks debut yet. So what's next?
