Jason Akeson played in 201 games for the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL before he signed an entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on March 2nd, 2011. Throughout his time with the Rangers, which spanned from the 2007-2008 season to 2010-2011, Akeson produced 254 points. Of those 254 points, he had 68 goals and 186 assists. With 73.23% of his points being assists in his time with Kitchener, it should be no surprise that is goal and assist totals are so lopsided this season.

Splitting time between the Trenton Titans and Adirondack Phantoms this year, Akeson has registered 19 points. Only two of those 19 points are goals, as the forward has provided 17 helpers to his teammates.

Akeson is currently with the Phantoms, where he is ranked fifth on the team in scoring despite failing to score a goal with the squad this season. With 10 assists in nine contests, Akeson is the fourth highest-scoring forward for the Phantoms. He has played the fifth-lowest amount of games out of the 25 skaters to suit up for the Phantoms this season, yet he is the only player to produce five points or more in 17 games or less.

As for his time in Trenton, Akeson sits fifth on the team in scoring despite not playing a game for the Titans since November 17th. One of the four players ahead of Akeson in scoring for Trenton this season is Jacob Cepis, who registered the majority of his points with the Idaho Steelheads rather than the Titans. Also, Akeson has played in far fewer contests than the four players ahead of him in scoring for the Titans, as both Cepis and Stephen Schultz have participated in 18 tilts, while Andy Bohmbach and Marcel Noebels have suited up for 22 Titans’ games. The forward has recorded a pair of goals and eight helpers for Trenton during the 2012-2013 campaign.
