The Jr. Blues are proud to announce that forward Trace Jablin has signed a tender to play for the Kenai River Brown Bears of the North American Hockey League in Alaska. Jr. Blues Head Coach, J.P. Beilsten said, "We couldn't be more excited for Trace. He brings the full package from skating ability and puck handling ability, to grit and ability to play in the corners. Kenai is getting an outstanding prospect." Kenai currently sits in 3rd place, but are in 1st place when considering lost points, in the tight NAHL West Division race.
Brown Bear's Head Coach, Oliver David said, "We are very excited to have the opportunity to get Trace in a Brow Bear's uniform. The St. Louis staff does a tremendous job of accurately promoting their players, and we are happy to be considered as a destination for the Jr. Blues players looking to play at our level.
Jablin's 25 points is good for 3rd in team scoring and he becomes the 2nd Jr. Blues player to be tendered for next year, joining Daniel Rosse.
