The Flin Flon Bombers, proud members of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL), are pleased to announce that forward Jaeden Mercier has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for the Lindenwood University Lions.
The product of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan currently has 18 points (4 G, 14 A) in 13 games this season, which is tied for second overall in SJHL scoring. Mercier had a breakout season last year putting up 44 points (18 G, 26 A) in 39 regular season games while also posting 7 goals and 7 assists during the 2022 SJHL playoffs. Jaeden’s 6 points (2 G, 4 A) in 5 games at the Centennial Cup was a team high.
“We are very proud and excited for Jaeden. He’s worked hard to become a more complete player over his four years as a Bomber. Jaeden is one of the most offensively gifted players that I’ve coached. Jaeden’s puck skills, creativity and ability to make players miss is fun to watch.” – Bombers Head Coach & General Manager, Mike Reagan
