The Calgary Mustangs are pleased to announce that 20 year old forward Jamie King has committed to attend Mount Royal University and play hockey for the Cougars. The Cougars are entering their 3rd season in the very competitive CIS West and will be led by first year Head Coach Bert Gilling.
Jamie grew up in Northeast Calgary and began playing hockey for the Westwood Minor Hockey Association before moving onto the NEAA. Jamie then embarked on a three year junior career which saw him score 101 points in 143 games, all in a Mustangs jersey. During his time with the Mustangs Jamie was an Assistant Captain for two seasons, won the Most Inspirational Player Award in 2012-13 as well as the Team MVP Award in 2013-14.
Head Coach Derek Stuart, “Jamie is exactly what a coach wants in a player. Consistent, hard working and a competitor – Jamie is the ultimate team player who can be relied upon regardless of the situation. Jamie’s 55 points in 50 games this season was the cherry on top of an excellent Junior career.”
“I would like to thank the management, coaches, trainers and volunteers of the Mustangs organization for the opportunity to play for their team. I would also like to thank all of the teammates I've had along the way. Most importantly I would like to thank my family for their endless support. I'm looking forward to the challenges ahead at MRU,” said Jamie King.
The Calgary Mustangs organization is very proud of Jamie and would like to congratulate him and his family on this accomplishment. Jamie is the 5th Mustang to commit to a post-secondary institution this season joining Jared Van Ree – Mount Royal University (CIS), Connor Collett – Mount Royal University (CIS), Riley McDougall – UMass (NCAA) and Phelan Shaw – University of Minnesota-Duluth (NCAA).
