SASKATOON, SK– The Saskatoon Blades have signed 2007-born prospect, Jordan Martin, to a WHL Standard Player Agreement.
“I know teams always say this but, in sincere truth, we had Jordan ranked much higher than where we were able to get him,” says Blades director of scouting, Dan Tencer. “This is a player that I expect to have a long and very effective career in a Blades jersey. He defends with enthusiasm, is an excellent teammate and has solid offensive skills that we believe will start to emerge more and more as he ages. He’s the type of player that our coaches will love throwing over the boards in heavy, playoff-type games and he’ll show up with the same great effort every night. We’re excited to get him on board right away here.”
The Blades selected Martin 41st overall in the 2022 WHL Prospects Draft on Thursday, May 19th.
Martin laced up with the Yale Hockey Academy U15 Prep this past season. From Abbotsford, BC, the 6-foot-0, 180-pound defender excelled, notching 28 points in 24 games. With seven goals and 21 assists, Martin finished eighth on his team for points. The right-shot defender also tacked on 20 penalty minutes out west.
Jordan is committed to the Yale Hockey Academy U18 Prep for the upcoming season and is expected to attend his first Western Hockey League camp with the Blades this coming Fall.
The Saskatoon Blades would like to welcome Jordan and the Martin Family into the organization, and look forward to continuing his development under the coaching of Brennan Sonne’s coaching staff.
Details on the 2022-23 training camp will be released at a later date.
