Jordan Eberle (born May 15, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre currently playing for the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League (AHL). Selected in the first round, 22nd overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, he is a prospect for the Edmonton Oilers. During his four-year Western Hockey League (WHL) career with the Regina Pats, he won the Doc Seaman Trophy as the scholastic player of the year and was named a First Team All-Star, both in 2008. Internationally, he has competed for Canada in two World Junior Championships, winning gold and silver in 2009 and 2010, respectively. He was named Tournament MVP and Best Forward at the 2010 World Junior Championships and is Canada's all-time leading goal-scorer at the tournament.


Playing career


Minor hockey

Eberle played novice with Hockey Regina's tier-1 Kings and amassed 216 goals over 60 games in 1999–00.[1] He went on to play Bantam AAA for the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame in Wilcox, Saskatchewan, as a fourteen-year-old.[2] After being selected by his hometown major junior team, the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League (WHL), in the seventh round, 126th overall, of the 2005 WHL Bantam Draft,[3][4] Eberle joined the midget ranks with the Calgary Buffaloes of the Alberta Midget Hockey League (AMHL). He won a bronze medal with the Buffaloes at the 2006 Mac's Midget Hockey Tournament, scoring two goals in the bronze medal game against the Prince Albert Mintos.[5] He helped his team qualify for the 2006 Telus Cup national midget championship, where the Buffaloes lost a 5–4 triple overtime game in the final against the Mintos.[6] Eberle scored a goal in the losing effort[7] and was awarded the Most Sportsmanlike Award for the tournament.[6]

Regina Pats

Eberle debuted with the Pats in 2006–07, scoring 55 points and a team-high 28 goals in as a rookie. He added two goals and seven points in six points against the Swift Current Broncos in the opening round of the 2007 WHL playoffs, but was sidelined for the entirety of the second round against the Medicine Hat Tigers with a virus.[8] Eberle started his second major junior season by earning WHL Player of the Month honours for October 2007, totaling 16 goals and 26 points over 16 games for the Pats.[9] He had missed two games early in the season with tonsillitis, before scoring a hat trick in his return on October 6, 2007, against the Moose Jaw Warriors.[10] Eberle later represented Team WHL against Russia in the 2007 ADT Canada-Russia Challenge in late-November.[11] Midway through the season, he was chosen to compete in the 2008 CHL Top Prospects Game in Edmonton.[12]

Eberle finished 2007–08 with a team-high 42 goals and 75 points. His 42 goals accounted for one-fifth of his team's scoring and marked the first time a Pats player hit the 40-goal mark since Matt Hubbauer scored 48 in 2001–02.[8] It also tied for fourth in league scoring with Drayson Bowman of the Spokane Chiefs.[13] He was selected to the WHL East First All-Star Team and received the Doc Seaman Trophy as WHL scholastic player of the year (beating out defenceman Jared Cowen of the Spokane Chiefs).[14]

Eberle had started the 2007–08 season ranked seventh among WHL skaters in the NHL Central Scouting Bureau's preliminary rankings for the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.[15] At mid-season, he was ranked 24th among North American skaters,[16] then dropped to 33rd in the NHL CSS's final rankings.[4] Director of NHL Central Scouting, E. J. McGuire, described Eberle as a scorer whose strengths are his skating and stickhandling.[17] He was selected in the first round, 22nd overall, by the Edmonton Oilers. Having grown up in Regina, Eberle was a childhood fan of the Oilers, even after his family moved to Calgary at fourteen-years-old.[18] After being selected, he commented in an interview, "If I had to pick one pick, [the Oilers] would have been it."[18]

Eberle competed in his second ADT Canada-Russia Challenge for Team WHL in 2008.[19] After completing the 2008–09 WHL season with a team-leading 74 points in 61 games,[20] Eberle was signed to a three-year, entry-level contract by the Oilers on March 23, 2009.[20] Soon thereafter, he was assigned to the Oilers' minor league affiliate, the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League (AHL) for the remainder of the 2008–09 AHL season. He scored his first professional goal in his third game with the Falcons, a 4–3 loss to the Portland Pirates on March 29, 2009.[21] He went on to tally three goals and nine points in nine games.

Competing for a roster spot with the Oilers in the 2009 training camp, Eberle was one of the final cuts.[22] He was returned to the Pats on September 27, 2009,[22] and reeled off 25 points in 12 games to be named WHL Player of the Month for September and October.[23] He was named to Team WHL for the 2009 Subway Super Series (renamed from the ADT Canada-Russia Challenge) and was selected as an alternate captain to Pats teammate Colten Teubert for Game 5.[24] Eberle finished the 2009–10 WHL season second in league scoring with 106 points in 57 games, one point behind Brandon Kozun of the Calgary Hitmen in eight fewer games. He was the first member of the Pats to score 50 goals and record 100 points since Ronald Petrovicky during the 1997–98 season. Eberle finished his career with the Pats seventh all-time in franchise goal scoring with 155 and 12th in points with 310.[25]

After finishing the 2009-10 season with the Pats, Eberle was assigned to the Springfield Falcons of the AHL for the second consecutive season.[26]

Eberle represented Alberta at the 2007 Canada Games in Whitehorse, Yukon. He notched two goals and an assist in the bronze medal game against British Columbia in Alberta's 4–3 win.[27] Several months later, Eberle played for Team Canada's under-18 team at the 2007 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, but failed to register a point as Canada was kept from a medal.[28] He continued with the national under-18 team the following year at the 2008 IIHF World U18 Championships in Russia. He began the tournament by earning player of the game honours with a two-goal effort in the first round-robin game against Germany – a 9–2 win for Canada.[29][30] He later notched two goals and an assist in an 8–0 gold medal game win to help Canada to their first tournament championship in five years.[31] Eberle finished the tournament with 10 points in seven games, second in team scoring to Cody Hodgson.

In his third WHL season, Eberle was selected to the Team Canada's under-20 team for the 2009 World Junior Championships in Ottawa. In the semi-finals, on January 3, 2009, Eberle was named player of the game[32] after scoring two goals and the shootout-winner against Russia in a 6–5 win. Eberle dramatically scored his second goal of the night with just 5.4 seconds left in regulation to force extra time and the eventual shootout, in which he shot first and scored.[33] Defeating Sweden 5–1 in the final, Eberle helped Canada to a record-tying fifth straight gold medal and was named by the coaching staff as one of the team's best three players.[34] At the conclusion of the tournament, Eberle was third in tournament scoring with 13 points (6 goals, 7 assists).[35]

The following year, Eberle was named to his second national junior team for the 2010 World Junior Championships in his hometown Regina, Saskatchewan. He was selected as an alternate captain to Patrice Cormier.[36] He was named player of the game against Switzerland in the second game of the round-robin – a 6–0 win – with a five-point game (one goal, four assists).[37][38] Two games later, he notched two goals in regulation (one of which began a two-goal comeback late in the third period) and one in the shootout against the United States in the final game of the round-robin to earn his second player of the game honour of the tournament.[39] Canada later met the United States again in the gold medal game. Down 5–3 with three minutes to go in regulation, Eberle scored twice to force overtime.[40] His tying goal with 1:35 left made him Canada's all-time leading goal scorer in the tournament with 14, passing John Tavares' mark set the previous year.[40] Canada eventually lost in overtime, earning silver and ending their five-year gold medal streak.[41]

At the conclusion of the tournament, Eberle finished tied for the tournament lead in goals with Andre Petersson of Sweden and was second in points to Derek Stepan of the United States.[42] He was voted as the Most Valuable Player and Top Forward.[40] He was also named to the tournament All-Star Team by the media and named one of Canada's top three players by the coaches.[43]

Three days after the gold medal game, Regina mayor Pat Fiacco proclaimed January 8, 2010 as "Jordan Eberle and Colten Teubert Day" in the city for their efforts in the tournament.[44]

Personal life

Eberle was born to Darren and Lisa Eberle in Regina, Saskatchewan.[45] His dad coached him on his minor hockey teams growing up.[6] He attended high school at the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame in Wilcox, Saskatchewan, before moving to Calgary, Alberta at fourteen-years-old with his parents and three siblings.[45] He returned to Regina to play junior hockey for the Regina Pats and attended Archbishop M.C. O'Neill High School during the hockey season.[14] He went on to graduate from Bishop O'Byrne High School in Calgary in June 2008.[14]

Eberle has a cousin, Derek Eberle, who also played junior for the Pats from 1990 to 1993.[6] His brother, Dustin Eberle was drafted by the Pats in the 12th round (248th overall) of the 2007 WHL Bantam Draft.[46]
