PRESS RELEASE/TRADE ALERT
Wednesday, July 5th, 2017
DRYDEN, ON: The 2016 Keystone Cup’s defenseman MVP is going to be a Dryden GM Ice Dog.
Brendan Jay (May 12, 1997) from Vancouver, BC was acquired in a trade that saw Dryden GM Ice Dogs’ defenseman Garett Giertuga being sent to the NOJHL’s Soo Thunderbirds in exchange for the 20-year-old defenseman who has played in both the BCJHL and most recently in the NOJHL.
Dryden GM Ice Dogs Head Coach and General Manager, Kurt Walsten says that Jay’s on ice play can be compared to that of Stanley Cup Champion, Scott Stevens. “Brendan Jay will be one of the best defensemen in the league this upcoming season. He has the ability to play both ends of the rink and will see a lot of playing time. Jay will be tough to compete against because of his size (6’3” 225 lbs), the physical way he plays the game and the reality that he hits like a tank.”
The Dryden GM Ice Dogs organization would like to thank Garett Giertuga for his hard work and tenacity, and wish him all the best with the Soo Thunderbirds.
Welcome to the Dog Pound, Brendan.
