David Junior Hoilett (born on 5 June 1990 in Ottawa, Canada) is a Canadian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Blackburn Rovers in the English Premier League.



He made his début for Paderborn (also on loan) against Kickers Offenbach, after being a substitute for Sven Lintjens.[1] Paderborn won the match 3–2. Hoilett's first match in the starting eleven was against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.[2].In summer of 2008, Hoilett started playing for FC St. Pauli.[3]

In June 2009, his home club Blackburn Rovers made an appeal for Hoilett to get a work permit for him to play football in England.[4]

On 2 July 2009, Hoilett was granted a work permit, allowing him to continue his fledgling career at Blackburn Rovers.[5]

He scored his first and second goal for Blackburn Rovers since his full-time return to the club in only his third game, this in a pre-season friendly against non-League outfit Leigh Genesis. He also earned Rovers a penalty in that very same game. His first competitive goal for Rovers came in a 3–1 League Cup win at Gillingham on 25 August 2009.[6]

Hoilett was involved in Blackburn's dramatic League Cup win against Chelsea on 2 December 2009. Coming on as a second half sub, he won an extra-time penalty which Benni McCarthy converted to put Rovers 3–2 up but then missed a golden chance late on to seal victory before Paulo Ferreira equalised in the 122nd minute. However, Hoilett picked himself up and converted the crucial fifth penalty to help Rovers to the 4–3 shootout win and a place in the semi-finals. He then started his first league game 12 December 2009 against Hull City, playing the full 90 minutes.

On 25 February 2010, with his contract due to expire in June 2010, Junior ended media speculation regarding his future at the club, by signing a new two-and-a-half year deal with Blackburn Rovers keeping him at the club until the summer of 2012.[7]


His brother Jaineil Hoilett played for 1. FSV Mainz 05[8].
