The 17-year-old is a former
Stars junior player who moved into the Okanagan Hockey Academy UK at Swindon to
develop his game. Last season he iced 15 times for Swindon Wildcats 2 last
season scoring 7 goals.
The teenager is now looking
forward to icing for his home-town club.
Jake said: “I’m looking
forward to be playing with Oxford being my local club and having started here
as a U14 and I’m excited to see how senior hockey develops me after my past two
seasons with OHA.”
Head Coach Simon Anderson
said: “I’m looking forward to working with Jake.
“I’m delighted Swindon have
agreed to allow Jake to come over to us and I thank Aaron Nell for setting this
“Jake has had a great hockey
education in the OHA UK programme under Ryan Aldridge and will come to us ready
to play. This is a great chance for Jake to test himself at the next level,
here in Oxford.”
