Player Profile: Jake Gwillim (11/33)

First Look At Tomahawks' Tender Jake Gwillim

Back in Feburary we wrote an article about Jake Gwillim. Here's an exserpt from that article:

In junior hockey, it's never too early to take a look at next season. At this level of hockey, players age out every season, so it's key to be able to scout up and coming talent to take over the roster spots that free up.

Just a week ago the Tomahawks' settled on their two goalies for the rest of the 13-14 season, Okicki and Young. Okicki is playing in his last junior year, and his spot in the Johnstown lineup will have to be filled by someone new next season.

Tendering a player for an NAHL team doesn't guarantee that the player will make that team's roster at the end of training camp, but it does give the player a foot in the door.

One player that the Tomahawks' have recently tendered is goaltender Jake Gwillim. Gwillim stands at 6ft and is 200lb. He's a 1997 birth year player and is currently playing for the Lansing Capitals of the NAPHL.
