The Dryden GM Ice Dogs continue to add to their deep roster. The team has announced that following a successful main camp, they have acquired forward Jacob Siebenga.

“Jacob adds another layer of offence to what is shaping up to be one of the deepest forward cores we have put together in recent years,” said Mike Sveinson, Team President. “He’s a big player who is capable of scoring as well as facilitating his teammates. He is a welcome addition to the Dryden GM Ice Dogs.”

The 18-year-old Surrey, BC native has experience in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, the Pacific Junior Hockey League, as well as the Superior International Junior Hockey League.

“The biggest excitement for me, this upcoming season, is getting an opportunity to play with a group of winners,” said Siebenga.

“We have a great group of returning players who know what it takes to win and I’m looking forward to joining that winning culture. The goal for me is clear, win the league championship, and then secure a spot in the RBC Cup.”

The Dryden GM Ice Dogs open the 2018-2019 season at home on September 21, when they take on the Fort Frances Lakers. Puck drop is at the Dryden Memorial Arena at 7:30 p.m
