Jake Fuss has been a staple for the Knights organization in the past two years, setting tier-III junior hockey records last season in the NA3AHL, and leading the Knights EHL team in points in 2017-18. Through 11 games played, Fuss is tied for third in the league with 11 goals. For his efforts, the Knights captain has been named to the EHL all-star team for the their upcoming exhibition with UMass Boston Beacons.
The Beacons are the first NCAA opponent the EHL has ever faced. UMass Boston plays out of the NEHC in NCAA division III hockey. They’ll host Team EHL on Saturday, October 21st at 4:00 pm EDT.
“Jake is as deserving as anyone in this league of a spot on the all-star team,” said Knights head coach Josh Fusco. “He’s not just a scorer for us. He’s a leader, our captain, and he sets the tone on and off the ice. He comes to work every day, every shift, and gives us a great boost in everything we do. I’m happy that he’s being recognized for it.”
“I feel good about it,” said Fuss. “I want to thank my teammates for their support, for getting me here. I thank Coach Fusco for putting in a good word for me. It’ll be a good test this weekend going against UMass Boston, seeing how a college team runs their systems. It’ll be good to see how the EHL holds up.”
