Sioux Falls, SD - The Sioux Falls Jr Stampede AAA Tier 1 Program is proud to announce that 1998 born Forward, Jaedin Ness of Wayzata, Minnesota, has signed an agreement for the 2017-2018 season with the New Jersey Hitmen (NCDC) of the USPHL.
Ness becomes the fourth player from the ’16-’17 Sioux Falls Jr Stampede 18U team to advance to Junior A hockey.
Ness, a 5'10, 178 pound forward, had 21 goals and 19 assists in his one season with the Jr Stampede.
“Jaedin is a great teammate with a tremendous work ethic and character. His speed and tenacity on the puck separate him from many players. He had an excellent year with us and his production really took off the second half of the season," said Head Coach, Dan Houck.
The New Jersey Hitmen, one of the top junior programs on the East coast, have made it to the USPHL Finals three out of the last four years.
Coach Houck added, “The Hitmen have an incredible track record for player development and placement. From the 2016-17 team, 13 players have signed Division I commitments. Jaedin’s hockey future will be very well served there and will be a great springboard for his college hockey career.”
