“Jake comes to us from the Skylands Kings (NA3HL). Prior to juniors, Jake played for the Holderness School (NEPSAC) which provides some of the best education and high school hockey in the United States. For the Kings, Jake was over a point a game player. We are excited to add a great young man off the ice, who also has a great nose for the net on the ice. Welcome to the Cardinal Family, Jake”, stated ULA’s head scout, Kyle Hughes.
“We are extremely proud of the strides that Jake took this season and are excited to announce that he will be continuing his playing career at the University of Louisville,” Stated Skylands Head Coach, Adam Mitchell, “Jake is an incredible teammate both on and off the ice, he is a great leader and brings a lot of intensity to every workout, practice and game. Although we were only fortunate enough to have him for one season, Jake certainly had an effect on our younger players and has helped to shape the foundation of the Kings’ culture. The Cardinals coaching staff will undoubtedly enjoy their 4 years working with Jake, Good Luck Cic!”
