Stampede call up Zeleznikar for this weekend

Press Release

Sioux Falls, SD—The Sioux Falls Stampede have called up affiliate defenseman Jake Zeleznikar for their games this weekend. He will wear #19 and is eligible to play tonight in Kearney, Neb. against Tri-City and tomorrow night in Sioux City. Affiliate players are allowed to play in up to 10 regular season games without being on the official roster.

The Hermantown, Minn. native just completed his senior season playing at Hermantown High School where he posted 47 points (11g, 36a) in just 31 games played. He helped lead the Hawks to the Minnesota State High School “A” Championship game against St. Thomas Academy in which they fell in the final seconds, 5-4.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound defenseman was originally selected by the Stampede during the 2012 USHL Draft and then placed on the Herd’s affiliate list after tryout camp as he went on to play his senior season at Hermantown. Although his stats are impressive, he also received some publicity for his hair during the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament where he was named to the All-Hockey Hair Team.
