After Pearson had bounced back-and-forth between the Colts second and third line in his rookie season, in which he checked in with 15 goals and 42 points in 66 games, Hawerchuk phoned his player last summer.

"He told me I not only could be a top-six forward in the league, but I could lead the OHL in scoring," Pearson recalled. "I kind of sloughed off the part about me leading the league in scoring, but I knew I could work harder and become better.

"I wanted to make hockey my life."
