Captain Jordan Stock of the Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Milton Menace (photo credit – Spencer Smye | OJHL Images) has confirmed his commitment to join U SPORTS Brock University Badgers in St. Catharines beginning with the 2022-23 season.
After splitting 2018-19 between the Brantford 99ers of the OJHL and the Jr. B Hamilton Kilty B’s, Stock had a breakout season in Milton, scoring 24 goals and adding 31 assists in 49 games in 2019-20.
This past season, he had 28 goals and 32 assists for the Menace.
The 21-year-old is a product of his hometown Hamilton Huskies AAA minor hockey program.
“Jordan has been an integral part of the Menace franchise on and off the ice,” said Milton Coach and GM Dan Del Monte. “He came to us three years ago and quickly established himself as our leader and natural choice for captain. It has been a pleasure to work with him and witness his tireless work ethic, commitment and loyalty to his franchise and his teammates. I have no doubt that Stocker will continue to do great things and Brock U is lucky to have him.”
“I’ve had the pleasure to work with this young man and watch him develop as a player over the past few years,” said Menace Assistant Coach Tyler Pracek. “Stocker has been an exceptional leader both on and off the ice. He puts his teammates first and has been a big piece to the success of this organization.”
Brock advanced to the U SPORTS University Cup quarter-finals this spring under two former OJHL coaches, Interim Head Coach Kevin Forrest (North York, Trenton, Toronto Jr. Canadiens) and Associate Coach Jerome Dupont (Cobourg, Trenton, Aurora, Thornhill).
OJHL graduates on Brock’s 2021-22 roster included: Mario Peccia (Toronto Patriots), Jacob Hutchings (Georgetown, North York), Cole Thiessen (Newmarket), Matthew Barnes (Trenton, Orangeville), Caleb Boman (Trenton), Jake Cella (Georgetown, North York, Newmarket), Christian DeDonato (Newmarket), Alexander Ridolfi (Aurora, Markham), Kyle Robinson (Trenton), Jonathon Schaefer (Milton), Zach Taylor (Collingwood, Orangeville), Jacob Roach (Pickering), Frank Pucci (Wellington), Tyler Rollo (Oakville), Justin Kyle (Collingwood), Matthew O’Brien (Toronto Jr. Canadiens), Cameron Gaylor (Trenton).
