Head Coach/GM Ryan Papaioannou – “Jeremy was an incredible addition to our line up two years ago, he is incredibly hard to play against and the type of player everyone wants on their team. He embodies every quality we want in our players. His ability to be a team player and do what’s best for the group is undeniable. I am proud to say Jeremy is an alumnus of our program. Mount Royal will be very happy with Jeremy and his future contributions to their hockey team.”
