Jamieson Oleksiak (born December 21, 1992) is a Canadian ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League. Oleksiak was selected 14th overall in the first round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars, the highest draft choice in Northeastern University's history.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Oleksiak attended Northeastern University for one year and had 13 points on 4 goals and 9 assists and team-best +13 plus/minus. After his freshman season with the Northeastern Huskies, Oleksiak decided to return to the Canadian Hockey League for further development, and on July 25, 2011 the Saginaw Spirit announced that they had signed Oleksiak to an Ontario Hockey League contract, and on October 6, 2011, it was announced that Oleksiak had signed a three-year entry level contract with the National Hockey League's Dallas Stars. With the Spirit out of contention during the 2011-12 season, Oleksiak was traded to the title contending Niagara IceDogs on January 10, 2012.
On January 30, 2013, the Dallas Stars called up Oleksiak from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League. Oleksiak assisted Brendan Morrow for his first NHL point on February 13 vs. Calgary Flames.
