Omaha 18U forward Medeiros signs in QMJHL
The Omaha AAA Hockey Club, proud members of the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL), are pleased to announce that 18U forward Nathan Medeiros has signed with the Acadie Bathurst Titan of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).
Medeiros is an 18-year-old winger who hails from Montreal, Quebec. He led the League Champion Omaha AAA 18U Team in scoring with 49 goals and 81 assists for staggering 130 points in 71 games.
Medeiros was second in NAPHL 18U scoring with 43 points this past season and was named to the All-NAPHL 18U 1st Team. He was named as the 18U Offensive Peak Performer from the first NAPHL event at the NAHL Showcase in September of 2013 and was again named the 18U Offensive Peak Performer from the final regular season event in January 2014 in Troy, Michigan.
“Nathan is a very good player with great offensive skills. Most importantly however, he is consistent every time he touches the ice,” said Omaha head coach David Wilkie. "He has high-end skill and thinks the game very well. He has a very good future in front of him and has the ability to be an impact player at the next level.”
He also won the 16U Championship with the 2012-13 Omaha AAA 16U Team. Medeiros had signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Topeka Roadrunners in January but he opted to go the Major Junior route and forego his NCAA eligibility by signing with the Titan who compete in the QMJHL.
