We are thrilled to announce that our very own veteran, Jake Turek, will be taking his goaltending skills to Northland College in Wisconsin! 🏒 Having defended the net for the Gillette Wild for the past two seasons, Jake’s talents are now set to shine on a new stage. 🥅 We couldn’t be prouder of his upcoming journey!

This is what Jake said about Northland:
“I’m super excited to be furthering my education and hockey career at Northland College next year. I was able to visit the campus at Northland and it felt immediately like home. Everyone was super nice and the campus itself was really beautiful and had a relaxing atmosphere of being in the nature also being right by Lake Superior. Northland was all around the perfect fit for me from being able to play high level hockey on an amazing team to the small class sizes to the nice facilities at Northland College. I’m ecstatic to be able to have this opportunity and pursue it at suck an amazing college. Thank you Northland College!”

This is what Coach Gregory said about Jake:
“When we started the process with Jake, we knew from the beginning it was going to be a great fit for everyone. He’s a hard working player from the Midwest and came highly recommended by Coach Hayes and other scouts here in Wisconsin and Minnesota. He’s an intense competitor, challenges the shooter, and has the work ethic we are looking for, he’s going to compete for work and couldn’t be happier that he chose Northland”
