The North York Rangers have sent the Ontario Junior Hockey League MVP Jett Alexander to the Prince George Spruce Kings of the BCHL on Wednesday.

We would like to thank Jett for his amazing services the past five-years with the North York Rangers of the OJHL and AAA levels. He helped the Rangers achieve new heights, which includes Telus Cup championship, franchise record and much more.

The defending champion are getting one of the best goalies in all of Junior A hockey coast-to-coast. This past season the 19-year-old recorded a league high 30 wins in 43 starts. He also topped all stoppers in his 22-team league in both goals-against average at 1.67 and save percentage at .945, while also breaking a league record 10 shutouts.

This sort of astronomical stats, earned him the OJHL Top Goaltender Award, League MVP and being named the CJHL Top Goaltender this past season.

The Bloomfield, Ont., native is a home grown talent for NYR. He played his Minor Midget AAA and Midget AAA years with the Rangers, which included a Telus Cup championship in 2016. When he made the official jump to Junior A, the 6’5 goalie started with the Georgetown Raiders, but it wasn’t long until he made his return to the organization that helped developed him. In the ladder parts of 2016, the Rangers acquired Alexander and forward Ross Krieger, who will be playing for the University of Toronto in the fall, from the Raiders.

After that trade Alexander started to develop into a top tier goaltender. He win 53-25-2 record and posted a 1.88 goals against average and .934 save percentage.
