The Melfort Mustangs are proud to announce the commitment of 2000-born Defenceman Jaden Callan for 2019-20.
Callan, from Red Deer, Alberta, played for the Golden Rockets of the KIJHL this past season. In 47 regular season games, Callan led his team in scoring from the back end. He scored 5 times and added 23 assists for 28 points. In 4 playoff games he picked up an assist.
The big 6-foot-2 blueliner has the size, as well as the speed and skill to play at the next level. “Callan is a big, strong, and very mobile defenceman with excellent puck skills” Mustang Head Coach Trevor Blevins said. “His development in Golden as an 18-year-old was outstanding and we got to see that at Spring Camp.”
“The Rockets are tremendously proud of Jaden taking this next step in his development. The Mustangs are an excellent organization, the perfect destination after a year in the KIJHL to make the jump in his Junior hockey journey to the Junior A level.” Gold Rockets Head Coach Jeremy Blumes said.
Callan impressed at the annual Melfort Mustangs Spring Camp this March. The Mustangs are proud to announce he will join the team in the fall to start the 2019-20 season.
