May 28, 2020
During the current and unforeseen cancelation of the 2019-20 season, the players in the NAHL saw their seasons cut prematurely short. In some cases, players saw their junior hockey careers come to an end as well. However, the NAHL got together a decided to highlight some of those players, who were born in 1999 and were in their final season of playing junior hockey.
As a result, we present a new series entitled: 50 players in 50 days
50 players in 50 days will select 50 players from each of the 26 NAHL teams this past season that were born in 1999, are currently uncommitted, and deserve some recognition during their time spent playing and developing in the NAHL. Over the course of the next 50 days, we will take time out to look at their accomplishments, review their season, and provide some background on their NAHL careers. Players will be initially highlighted in alphabetical order by team. Enjoy!
Kevin Pitts, Forward, Maine Nordiques
Maine Nordiques forward Kevin Pitts, 20, made the most of his first and only NAHL season, finishing 4th in team scoring with 39 points in 51 games played this past season.
The 5’11/190 lbs. native of Point-Claire, Quebec, well-balanced scoring was shown all season long as he had nine multi-point games in his first and only year in the NAHL. He was also one of the assistant captains during the 2019-20 season.
“Kevin was a very balanced player who always seemed to come up with the big goals that would swing momentum at the right time. Kevin was also a big member of the Nordiques as he never backed down from a conversation from a fan. We wish him all the best in the future,” said Nordiques head coach Nolan Howe
Prior to playing in the NAHL, Pitts spent two seasons playing prep school hockey at the Holderness School.
