The Waywayseecappo Wolverines have announced that goaltender Jase Wareham of the Yellowhead Chiefs of the Manitoba Under 18 Hockey League has signed a letter of intent to play for the Wolverines for the 2023-24 season.
The 17-year-old from Rivers, Manitoba put up a .914 save percentage last season, winning 16 games in his 34 in net. He was named a 2nd team all-star for the MU18HL, essentially being named the 2nd best goalie in the league.
“I think I had a pretty decent season this past year,” said Wareham. “We had a very good locker room, and it’s easier to play behind a team when the whole group is that close.”
Wareham signs with the Wolverines after having a great training camp and preseason last year with the group. He says he decided to stick with the Wolverines even though he was sent back to Yellowhead.
“(The Wolverines) are a great organization, and they have believed in me since the start,” said Wareham. “Going back to Yellowhead let me develop for another year before being given this opportunity.”
We would like to welcome Jase to the Wolverines
