The University of Prince Edward Island’s Men’s Hockey team has recruited Jesse Sutton to play for the Panthers in the 2019–2020 season.

Sutton is a 21-year-old forward from Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador. Sutton played four seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, initially drafted by the Quebec Remparts, finishing his career in Chicoutimi and Acadie-Bathurst.

In a story in the Charlottetown Guardian, Sutton cited UPEI’s kinesiology program as a big attraction, as well as the opportunity to play with friends and former team members who will be Panthers this season.

“Everyone, when being recruited, is trying to find the best situation for themselves individually,” said coach Forbes MacPherson. “But if they can make that happen with buddies or familiar faces, it just increases that level of excitement and comfort.”

Go Panthers Go!
