Bricknell inks contract with ECHL’s Kansas City Mavericks


OSHAWA, Ont. – Ontario Tech men’s hockey alumnus Jake Bricknell officially signed his contract with the East Coast Hockey League’s (ECHL) Kansas City Mavericks this week.
He spent 2018-20 with the Ridgebacks, finishing his two-year career with 20 goals and 48 points over 51 regular season games. Over five postseason games he finished with three points.
“Ontario Tech provided me with a great experience and opportunity that allowed me to mature on and off the ice,” said Bricknell. “The coaching staff is first class and I credit them a lot in my development that has allowed me to sign a pro contract.”
Prior to his time playing U SPORTS hockey, Bricknell spent four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) between the Belleville Bulls, Hamilton Bulldogs and Guelph Storm. Over that time, he had 19 goals and 42 points in 205 games.
He finished his junior career with the Cobourg Cougars and Aurora Tigers in the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL), amassing 45 goals and 117 points in 68 games played.
While he has a solid resume, he knows the last year has been tough in returning to playing competitive hockey due to the pandemic. His focus turned to his fitness as he awaited an opportunity to hit the ice again in a professional role.
“It has been tough not playing competitively for a year and a bit, but it has allowed me time to further my training and fitness and arrive in Kansas City ready for a great 2021-22 season.”
The signing has Bricknell also joining former Ridgeback Loren Ulett, who is entering his fourth season with the club.
KC gets their season underway on October 22 against the Iowa Heartlanders.
