“One of the best things about playing hockey in my hometown is sleeping in my own bed.”

Campbell River Storm fans are excited that #20 decided to play a season in his hometown before embarking on what should be a successful hockey career.

The talented power forward is a prospect of the WHL Medicine Hat Tigers and he wants to make the jump, “I want to be in Medicine Hat next year, I think I’m doing the right things to get there and stick with them but I have to keep working at improving. One day I want to make the NHL.”

On a team of very talented players, Jalen’s style stands out. “I’m a big power forward that likes to drive the net and shoot the puck. I like getting in the dirty areas, down low, in the corners and I like to make plays down there, that’s my game.”

Storm fans got a taste of that on October 27 against the Generals, when Jalen demonstrated what they can expect from the 16 year old. From the offensive blueline he worked his way by the Gens defence with a series of quick moves and great stick work, got in close and roofed it for the Week 9 Storm Goal of the Week.

Last week, in three games, he picked up 6 points including a hat trick against the Cougars on Sunday.

With Dawson Frank returning to the lineup, fans could see some of the magic the two Campbell River boys displayed when they played together earlier in the season. Back in Week 6, they were on fire combining for 14 points in just two games highlighting some incredible passing plays.

The 6’1” 180 pounder, as you’d expect, is having a great season. Coming into Week 13, Jalen is third in rookie scoring behind Nanaimo’s Booker Chacalias (27pts) and teammate Ryan Butler (25pts). He has found the net 11 times this season and added 12 helpers, good for over a point per game.



The one thing you can be certain of with young Jalen is that after a couple of years playing in the Lower Mainland (Delta Hockey Academy) he is thrilled to once again be back on the North Island.

“I’m a hometown boy, grew up in Campbell River. I played minor hockey with the Tyees and I have some great memories like winning the provincials. It’s an honour playing in my hometown.
