We are pleased to announce that Jacob Erwin has committed to come and play another season for your Cochrane Crunch (formally Elliot Lake Bobcats).
Jacob, is one of the Crunch forwards and he hails from Port Dover the home of the Friday the 13th Motorcycle Rally. He weighs in at 165 lbs and measure 5’9″. Jacob was born April 29th 1995.
Jacob is a naturally talented hockey player and in his first year of Junior ‘A’ Hockey he had 14 points during the regular season and had 3 during that grueling battle against those Peski Eskis. He is determined to triple his point production for this year and won’t settle for anything less than 40 points during the regular season.
He is determined to play university hockey in the states. He has two more seasons of Junior ‘A’ to hone his skills and get picked up by either a NCAA Division I or Division III school. While in University Jacob plans on studying to become an Athletic Trainer. Once school is done he would love to play Pro Hockey in Europe.
Jacob was kind enough to take a few minutes out of his busy day to talk about his decision to come to Cochrane.
Here is what the young man had to say: “I am very excited to be coming to Cochrane to play this year. It’s going to be a fresh start for all of us on the team and what better place to start over then in Cochrane. I am looking forward to playing in front of a packed house game this town has been very good to us in the past, I can just imagine how things will be once we are the home team.
I am also looking forward to playing and training in the beautiful Tim Horton Event Centre. The gym looks amazing the arena is one of the nicest rinks I have seen and the staff of the Event Centre take such great care of the facility make it easy to be proud of your home rink.
I am also looking forward to seeing the locker room. It’s going to be great to be part of the team that gets to break it in. Not very many hockey players can say that they were part of the group that was the first to use the locker room.
I look forward to playing for Coach Lenny (Ryan Leonard) this upcoming season. I believe that I have an advantage coming into this season because I already know what he expects of me on the ice. I want to be that player that he puts on the ice during the big game because he knows I will get the job done.
Oh and I can’t wait to get her and get involved in this amazing community. I love volunteering and making my presence known in any community I am in. I want to be a role model for all the young hockey fans in town and I want to give them someone to look up to.”
Jacob will continue his training and work schedule till he gets to Cochrane on August 8th. He will not be happy till the Crunch bring the League Championship to Cochrane.
