From the land of the Swiss Alps to the North Shore of Espanola.
Espanola Rivermen general manager Chad Clarke has confirmed to HockeyNewsNorth.com that the Canadian International Hockey League team has signed high-scoring centre Jason Borer, who hails from Sissach, Switzerland.
Borer, who has a 1996 birth date, heads from his homeland to Espanola and the CIHL with impressive credentials based on the 2013-2014 season.
During the 2013-2014 campaign, the 5-foot-11, 180 pound pivot put up impressive numbers with EHC Rheinfelden, an under-20 Swiss team.
In just 15 games with EHC Rheinfelden, Borer had 18 goals, 20 assists, 38 points and also racked up 89 minutes in penalties.
Clarke said the addition of Borer is one of many the Rivermen plan on making prior to the start of the CIHL’s inaugural 2014-2015 season.
Espanola begin its 2014-2015, regular-season campaign on Friday, October 3 when the Rivermen travel to Sault Ste. Marie to play the Batchewana Attack at Rankin Arena.
