Spruce Grove Saints General Manager Rob Sklaruk announced today the team has acquired the rights to 2000 born forward Jake Aston from the Drayton Valley Thunder in exchange for a player development fee.
Aston comes to the Saints after a two-year tenure with the Thunder. Listed at 5?11?, 181 lbs. the St. Albert, Alberta native compiled 15 goals, 14 assists and 22 penalty minutes in 105 regular season appearances with Thunder, adding two assists in eight career AJHL playoff games.
Sklaruk was pleased to add the veteran left shot forward and says, ?Jake is the new Brett Trentham ? a very reliable team first player, who will provide leadership and stability to our group. He?s a versatile player that can play up and down our line up and seemed to elevate his game every time he played the Saints. Jake is a quality person and a player that we are excited to see in a Saints uniform.?
