Over the summer, Jacob Bryson '16, a former Loomis hockey standout, was selected in the fourth round of the National Hockey League draft by the Buffalo Sabres.
The lefty defenseman from London, Ontario had a stellar freshman year at Providence College, where he recorded 20 points in 39 games. At Loomis, during their 2014-2015 season, Bryson recorded 15 points in 27 games, and found so much success as a Pelican that he was drafted by the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League. He chose to play at Omaha for a year before making the jump to NCAA hockey at Providence.
Jacob was recently featured in The London (Ontario) Free Press, where he talked about his hockey experiences. See what he has to say about how Loomis helped him to reach many of his goals. Jacob also was featured on Providence College's athletics website.
