Grand Rapids native goes with D-III Eau Claire

Springfield Jr. Blues forward Ross Janecyk has committed to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (NCHA) for the 2007-08 season.

“Ross’s leadership and strong character compliment his hockey skills to the fullest,” said former Jr. Blues coach-GM Nick Pollos. “I’m very proud of him in his choice to play at Eau Claire.”

Janecyk, a Grand Rapids native who started his NAHL career in 2005-06 with the defunct Helena Bighorns, was traded to Springfield from Bismarck earlier this season. After 43 games this year, the 20-year-old has 10 goals among 22 points.

“Ross has been a great addition to our team since coming over from Bismarck,” added Pollos.
