Blazers Sign Forward Jesse Zaharichuk


Aug 28,2014(ISN) – Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers announced this morning that they have signed
17-year-old forward Jesse Zaharichuk to a standard WHL player agreement.

Zaharichuk is a Sherwood Park native who was listed by the Blazers in September
2012. The 17-year-old, who stands at 5’8″ and 151lbs, played junior hockey last
season with the Drumheller Dragons of the AJHL. He put up 14 points in 48 regular
season games. He was a key contributor in the playoffs with five goals and nine
points in 15 playoff games.

“Jesse came to camp and earned a contract and the opportunity to play,” commented
Director of Player Personnel, Matt Recchi. “He is a smart and crafty young player.
With a year of junior hockey already under his belt, we think he can push some of
our veteran players for ice time.”

Zaharichuk will likely be in the line-up this weekend as the Blazers play two WHL
preseason games. On Friday, August 29th, the Blazers will host the Vancouver Giants
at 7:00pm at the ISC in their first WHL preseason game. The hockey club will play on
Saturday, August 30th at 7:00pm in Kelowna.

Tickets to this Friday’s game can be purchased at the Kamloops Blazers Box Office by
calling 250-828-3339 or in person at the ISC from 9:00am – 5:00pm.
