Jarret Granberg named to WCH's Best of the West

For those in the know, the guys over at the Western College Hockey Blog are cranking out a blog series on the top 56 recruits, ramping up to the start of the upcoming hockey season. One of the only things I am looking forward to right now (the start of the semester is really hard on us at work).

But anyway, looking at this guy on film, I'm pretty impressed. He definitely isn't the biggest guy in the world, but he's pretty good at introducing pucks to twine. The Nanook rookie played three seasons for the Brooks Bandits of the AJHL, in 2006-2007 regular season, the 5' 11" 155lb forward scored 23 goals and added 24 assists for 47 points with 31 penalty minutes in 45 games as a rookie. He notably recorded a five point night against the Canmore Eagles with two goals and three assists. His most recent season with the Bandits proved even more fruitful. As the team captain, across all 60 games, he netted 42 goals, tallied 44 assists for a grand total of 86 points, and only penalized for 42 minutes and average 1.4 points per game.

Between this guy, and our other studly recruits on the docket (more to come on the other guys later), this season is shaping up to be a big year for Nanook Hockey.
