The Cowichan Capitals have acquired 2001 born Jacob Brockman from the West Kelowna Warriors in exchange for future considerations.
Brockman is 19 years old and coming off a rookie BCHL campaign in which he recorded 2 goals and 7 assists for 9 points in 54 games with West Kelowna. Brockman is from El Segundo, California but holds dual citizenship to Canada and the United States and does not count as an import player. He stands 6’3″ and weighs in at 175 lbs and can play both up front and on the back end.
“We are really pleased to add Jacob to our roster. He brings a lot of skill and a veteran presence to our lineup. He played defence and forward last season so that gives our group some versatility as we enter the season. He has experience in the BCHL and will give our group more depth” said Capitals Head Coach and General Manager Geoff Grimwood.
Prior to joining the Warriors last season, Jacob played for the Los Angeles Jr Kings organization, rising through the ranks of U13 to U18 over the course of six seasons. His final two were on the under 18 team, where he recorded 61 points in 81 games. In his 17 year old season Brockman posted 16 goals and 24 assists for 40 points in 49 games, good for third on the team.
