Goaltender Jaeger Reed has joined the RoadRunners for the 2019-2020 season. Reed, the 20 year 6’1″ 185 lb old from Crosslake, MN. could be a very big addition to this seasons squad. “I had the chance to watch Jaeger at Odessa’s main camp in Chicago a few weeks back and was very impressed with his form and compete level” states RoadRunners assistant coach Ryan Scheide.
Reed, who the staff feel could be one of the top net-minders in the NA3HL has his goals set on college hockey after this season. “He had the opportunity to instantly jump to Trine University NCAA D-3 after the Jacks Camp but decided that he would play out his final year with us and see where that takes him.” added Scheide.
“We are very excited to add Jaeger to our team, he is a great kid that made the decision to play with us this season over a couple other options and we will be working hard to help him reach his college goals.” states coach Mike Beavis
The Roadrunners staff are hard at work putting on the final touches to get ready for the 2019-2020 Pre-season training camp which will begin on September 3rd. This week, Al Rooney and his team the Corpus Christi Ice Rays will be in town to begin their training camp and the RoadRunners staff will be on hand to help out when needed.
Coach Beavis will be taking a look at some of the players that the Ice Rays could send down for more development in the early goings as NAHL teams must all trim camp rosters before the regular season gets underway. “We are trying to form a working relationship with a few NAHL teams here as it is crucial to the NA3HL / NAHL development for our players.” added Beavis
Beavis will be in his rink this week but will hit the road to Odessa on Saturday to help out parent club the “Odessa Jackalopes” during their training camp. “I will be working all next week with Todd Watson and his staff to help them as much as possible in their process of solidifying their team for the upcoming season.” states Beavis. The RoadRunners have a couple players still up with the Jacks with Matt McBride and Myles Westbrook. both players are looking to stick with the parent club but have also committed to play in Bryan / College Station with the NA3HL team if they need some more time to reach the NAHL level.
