THUNDER BAY — The Lakehead University Thunderwolves hockey program has announced that former Quebec Major Junior Hockey League forward Jordan King will join the team in the coming season.

The six-foot-two winger played his first year of junior with the QMJHL's Halifax Mooseheads, then spent three years with the Amherst Ramblers of the Maritime Hockey League, leading the team in scoring each of the past two seasons.

Thunderwolves' head coach Andrew Wilkins described the Corner Brook, Newfoundland native as "a smart player with good size" and having "the ability to provide some more offence for us."

King, who will major in Kinesiology, said he was impressed with the campus and the facilities he saw during his recruiting visit.
