Blades Agree to Terms with Jenks for 2013-14

Estero, FL- Florida Everblades President and General Manager Craig Brush along with Head Coach Greg Poss announced Monday that the team has agreed to terms with forward, A.J. Jenks.

Jenks, 23, returns to the Estero after being assigned to the Everblades toward the end of last season, playing in 14 games and putting up 3 points (1g, 2a) for the team. Before moving to the Everblades, Jenks spent two seasons (2011-13) with the Charlotte Checkers (AHL) playing in 39 games and accumulating 12 points (5g, 7a).

“We were really happy with him last season, and we believe him to be a top centerman,” said Poss. “He is really strong in faceoffs and a very good two way forward.”

Before Charlotte, Jenks spent the 2010-11 season with the Rochester Americans, gathering 20 points (8g, 12a) for the season. Jenks had also spent a significant number of seasons in the OHL, playing for the Plymouth Whalers from 2006-10.  Jenks put up 193 points (79g, 114a) for the 4 seasons played in Plymouth.

The Wolverine Lake, MI native was selected by the Florida Panthers in the 4th round (100th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
