PATS SHIP GABRIELLE TO PRINCE GEORGE
Zablocki was a fifth round pick, 109th overall by Prince George in 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. The Wetaskiwin, AB native spent the 2014-15 season with the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the AJHL. In 55 games, the sixteen year-old managed 25 points (15G, 10A) and 114 penalty. In 2013-14, Zablocki led the AMMHL in scoring by totaling 81 points (45G, 36A) in 37 games with the Leduc Oil Kings.
“We are happy to get a young player of Lane’s calibre to add to our program, he bolsters our team’s depth and talent of players born in 1998,” said Pats Head Coach and GM John Paddock. “Giving up a player of Jesse’s abilities isn’t easy. He was a positive force on our team but this move is about the long-term.”
Jesse Gabrielle was acquired from Brandon Wheat Kings at 2015 WHL Trade Deadline. In 33 games with the Pats, Gabrielle posted 19 points (10G, 9A) and 43 penalty minutes. The Moosomin, SK native was drafted in the fourth round, 103rd overall by the Boston Bruins in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
