Chatham’s Jake Reed has signed with the Central Canada Hockey League’s Carleton Place Jr. A Canadians. Located in Carleton Place, 30-minutes outside Ottawa, the Canadians are one of the top Junior A hockey clubs in Canada.

“Playing for Carleton Place will be a huge honour,” says Reed, a grade eleven student at Ecole Secondaire de Pain Court. “They are one of the best teams in Canada, and they have tons of proof to back that up.”

After going undrafted in his Minor Midget season playing with the Chatham-Kent Cyclones ‘AAA’ team, Reed, a defenseman, spent last season starring with the Windsor Jr. Spitfires Major Midget team.

Reed had 6 goals and 16 assists for 22 points in 32 regular season games this season, before adding 2 goals and 7 assists in 13 playoff games with Windsor.

Carleton Place is one of the CCHL, and Canadian Junior Hockey League’s top organizations for player development, as they’ve committed 17 players to NCAA programs in the past two seasons

As for Reed, his goals are to help the Canadians return to the Royal Bank Cup, where they lost in the National Championship final this past year.

“This season I just hope to help my team back to a National Championship like they just played last season,” says the versatile defender, who also spent some time playing forward in Windsor this season. “That’d be the main goal for me and the team next year.”
