On the Brant signing, head coach McCreary added, “Jordan comes highly recommended after posting significant numbers in the SJHL & NAHL. Jordan will have every opportunity to be a presence in net for us. He is a big kid, who moves well and competes for every puck. We are excited to see what sort of stability he can bring to our club."
