Rochester Hills, MI- Oakland ACHA DI Hockey general manager Corey Hagood is pleased to announce that forward J.P. Weber has committed to Oakland. Weber comes to Oakland from the Decatur Blaze (USPHL Premier) where he scored 21 goals and 32 assists over 74 games.

 “Oakland is an unreal school, with an awesome hockey program that I want to help continue to grow.” Weber stated. “Oakland is also conveniently close to the home I’ve grown up in.”

Weber will be a skilled forward for the Golden Grizzlies with a physical element. “I’m a very skilled center and winger who plays both ends of the ice.” Weber said. “I’m also not afraid to use my physicality and get in battles along the boards.”

Being able to play at Oakland is very important to Weber, and he is ready to help bring success. “It means everything to me to have this opportunity and I’m going to give everything I have to help the program succeed. “

Weber will be studying business while at Oakland.

“I saw JP play a few times last season for Decatur and talked to him at a showcase” Oakland head coach Sean Parker stated. “He’s a local kid and once he got accepted into OU thought that Oakland was the best route for him even with a year left in juniors”

“I’m excited with what JP brings to the ice offensively.” Parker added.
