The Simon Fraser University Men's Ice Hockey program received a commitment from winger Jesse Mysiorek to attend the school and join the team for the 2012/13 British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League season.
Mysiorek, a gritty power forward, played two seasons for the Kindersley Klippers of the Saskatchewan junior league before being traded midway through his third season to the Flin Flon Bombers.
It was in Flin Flon where Mysiorek was at his most productive, notching 40 points in 51 games.
SFU head coach Mark Coletta looks forward to adding the hard-working two-way forward to the lineup.
"We have always been short on big, hard-nosed wingers that can score, and I think we've found one in Jesse. We feel very confident that he is going to come in and be an impact player for us and give us that toughness we need," said Coletta. "Jesse had many options on where he was going to play hockey next season, and for him to choose SFU is a clear statement that we are doing things right as a hockey program and that SFU offers top flight education."
"I am excited to continue my post-secondary education at a highly recognized university, and to experience everything B.C. and SFU has to offer," added Mysiorek, who also expressed a desire to bring a championship to SFU.
"I'd like to make a difference every shift and be a big asset to the team," he added.
Mysiorek is SFU's sixth commitment for the 2012/13 season. Additional player announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
