Scoring sensation Steven Harland is returning to the Powassan Voodoos of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League for a second season.
Powassan general manager Chris Dawson has confirmed that Harland, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound right winger who has a 1996 birth-date, has re-upped with the Voodoos for the 2015-2016 campaign.
A Scarborough native, Harland had a spectacular rookie season with Powassan in 2014-2015.
With 42 goals, 53 assists, 95 points in 52 regular-season games, Harland led the NOJHL in scoring and was rewarded by being named both rookie-of-the-year and most valuable player for the league.
In 10 playoff games, Harland added another 3 goals, 10 assists, 13 points.
According to Dawson, Harland had overtures from teams in other Jr. A leagues but opted to return to Powassan for 2015-2016.
As a first-year NOJHL team in 2014-2015, Powassan stunned the defending champion Kirkland Lake Gold Miners in the first round of the playoffs before losing to league finalist Cochrane Crunch in the second round.
