Saints acquire Aston from Thunder

The Saints have acquired the rights to 2000 born forward Jake Aston from the Drayton Valley Thunder in exchange for a player development fee.

The Spruce Grove Saints have bolstered their lineup by adding another forward.

General Manager Rob Sklaruk announced Thursday that the Saints have acquired the rights to 2000 born forward Jake Aston from the Drayton Valley Thunder in exchange for a player development fee.

Sklaruk compared Aston favourably to Brett Trentham, last season's captain who recently committed to play next season for the NAIT Ooks. He highlighted his versatility, playing style and leadership abilities as assets to the team. 

The 5'11, 181 pound winger joins Spruce Grove after two years with the Thunder, including last season where he put up 8 goals and 19 points in 51 games. He added two more assists in four playoff games.
