June 2023 – After back-to-back 60-point regular season campaigns, Avon helped the Peterborough Petes win the J. Ross Robertson Cup as Ontario Hockey League Champions, in doing so earning a spot in the 2023 Memorial Cup, where Avon recorded four points (three goals and one assist) in fives games including the overtime winner in the tie-breaker game. Avon will look to turn professional in 2023-24 or return to the OHL as an overage player. Mark Henry

June 2022 – Missing an entire year of development due to the cancellation of the 2020-21 OHL season, Avon went from a top 100 draft-eligible prospect to going undrafted in 2021. After impressing with his performance as a training camp invitee, Philadelphia chose to sign Avon to an entry-level contract. He put together a respectable OHL campaign with Peterborough this season, recording 29 goals and 39 assists in 64 regular-season games. Returning to the OHL as a 19-year-old next season, Avon will look to build off of his offensive success. John Gove
