Former UJ players heading overseas

Recent University of Jamestown hockey graduates Allan Pruss and Michael Pruss will be continuing their hockey careers overseas. The twin duo from Red Deer, Alberta, have inked a deal to play professionally for Adendorfer EC in Germany next season.

The pair announced their signing after the team had sent out a press release online and a report in its local newspaper.

The German club had taken interest in the brothers earlier this season and talks continued throughout the year. The twins finished first and second in scoring the past two seasons, which helped garner interest from the German club.

The brothers ended their time at UJ as members of the first UJ hockey graduating class and finished first and third in career points. Michael sits third in UJ career points with 39 goals and 57 assists for 96 points in 128 games, while Allan sits atop UJ for career points with 39 goals and 72 assists for 111 career points.

Adendorfer EC plays in the Regionalliga Hockey League, which is comprised of primarily German players and a handful of foreign import players. Import players range in experience, with many having college hockey experience and some having NHL experience.
