Class Of 2020: Adam Kim

If there was ever an individual to encapsulate the essence of playing with a “burr in your saddle”, then Adam Kim would be the fit. The ’99 forward and Inverary (ON) native now finds himself in the Nation’s Capital as a member of the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees.

Kim spent last season with the Trenton Golden Hawks of the OJHL, where he finished with a better than point-a-game stat line, recording 50 points in 44 games played before COVID shut down his playoff run. He started the season with the Johnstown Tomahawks of the NAHL as a free agent signing when his previous Junior club, the Kingston Voyageurs, were sold and the players left to make their own decisions re their future. But the fit wasn’t there, and when his former Kingston bench boss Peter Goulet was hired in Trenton, he jumped at the opportunity to join him in Trenton.

Kim was named OJHL Scholastic Player of the Year 2019-20, and was an OJHL Second Team All-Star in 2018-19 where he recorded 67 points in 54 games. He also participated in the 2019 Eastern Canada All Star Challenge. He leaves a remarkable junior hockey career behind him, joining a rejuvenated Gee Gees program.
