President, General Manager and Head Coach Fred Harbinson on the signing, “Jake
attended our 2011 spring camp as an underage player, and we were very
impressed with his skill level and overall potential. The family
recently decided that they wanted to give Jake a fresh start here in
Penticton. At 6'1" 185 pounds, Jake adds good size to our forward group,
and is intelligent and responsible on the ice.”
