Petes Sign Jake Partridge to Standard Player Agreement
Peterborough Petes General Manager Michael Oke announced Monday that the team has signed forward Jake Partridge to a standard player agreement.
Partridge, who was selected by the Petes in the 11th round, 215th overall in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection, spent the 2017-18 season with the Rayside-Balfour Canadians of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. Partridge is currently fifth in team scoring, and eighth in league rookie scoring, with 16 goals, 28 assists, 44 points, and 17 penalty minutes in 48 games.
The 5’8”, 165lbs left winger from Barrie, Ontario, attended the Petes’ 2017 Development and Training Camps, and will wear number 9. Partridge’s grandfather, Fern St. Onge, played 92 games for the Petes from 1960-62.
Partridge played his first game as a Pete on Monday, February 19 against the Niagara IceDogs.
“We’ve been monitoring Jake’s progress over the course of the season, and he’s been a key player for the Rayside-Balfour Junior ‘A’ team,” commented Oke. “This is another example of our scouting staff identifying a strong player in the later rounds of the Priority Selection that we think will be able to contribute to our team moving forward.”
