“I’d like to thank my teammates, coaches, trainers and all the other Winkler staff for a great two years wearing the Flyer jersey,” said Blake.
“It was an unforgettable experience and I’ve made many memories and relationships that will last a lifetime. I am excited to head to school and play for the University of Wisconsin-Superior hockey team next year. It will be an exciting new chapter in my life and I feel very prepared from everything I’ve learned here in Winkler.” Added Blake.
Blake, who calls Champlin, Minnesota home, finished his two years in Winkler with 82 points (29 Goals – 53 Assists) and 90 penalty minutes in 119 regular season games. He also served as an Assistant Captain this past season.
