“Jack is a big, strong player that is physical on the ice,” said Midland Head Coach Jason Cirone. “He has an upside offensively and makes it difficult for his opponents. We are really excited to bring him in. His leadership and toughness is always something we are looking for. Getting a player from Sheridan, knowing he’s been taught a good work ethic, makes us a better team.”
