Jay Harrison (born November 3, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Winnipeg Jets in the National Hockey League (NHL). He formerly played for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Carolina Hurricanes.

Playing career[edit]

Harrison grew up playing minor hockey in his hometown of Whitby, Ontario for the Whitby Wildcats of the OMHA's Eastern AAA League. In 1996–97, Harrison played Bantam for the Whitby Wildcats before moving onto play as a 16-year old for the Oshawa Legionnaires of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL).

He was the 1st overall selection of the Brampton Battalion in the 1998 OHL Priority Selection. He spent four seasons in the OHL with the Battalion.

Harrison was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 3rd round, 82nd overall, of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. After spending four seasons in the American Hockey League (AHL) with Toronto's farm team, Harrison made his NHL debut on January 27, 2006, against the Montreal Canadiens, in which he registered his first NHL career point, coming in the form of an assist.

On June 16, 2008, Harrison signed a one year contract with EV Zug of the Swiss National League A, but on March 27, 2009, he returned to the Toronto Maple Leafs, signing a deal, pro-rated at $450,000, to play out the rest of the 2008–09 season.[1]

On July 9, 2009 he signed a two-way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes that would pay him $500,000 in the NHL and $125,000 in the AHL.[2] On October 9, 2009 he scored his first NHL goal in a 7-2 victory for the Hurricanes over the Florida Panthers.

During the 2014–15 season, Harrison was traded by the Hurricanes to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a 2015 NHL Entry Draft 6th round pick on December 18, 2014.[3][4]
