Along with that, he brings a “whatever-it-takes” attitude and is driven by winning; there is a sense of purpose and competitiveness that Joe brings to the rink. We look forward to him continuing his development process with our staff and contributing to team success with our young core.

“We are thankful to Joe’s parents, Kara and Jarome, for their trust and belief in our development model and would like to welcome them to the Oil Kings family.”
