Natives Add 2 Auto-Protects

The Neepawa Natives are proud to announce forwards Cooper Kasprick and Jory Kulbacki as their two Auto-Protected players ahead of the 2020 Manitoba Junior Hockey League Bantam Draft.

The two Neepawa Minor Hockey products played this past season with the Yellowhead Chiefs AAA Bantam team. “We are very happy to add Cooper and Jory to the Natives and look forward to their development.” Head Coach/GM Ken Pearson has to say about the two local products.

Cooper Kasprick recorded 14 goals and 24 assists with the Chiefs last season and added 28 penalty minutes. “Cooper is a skilled forward that skates very well. He has good offensive instincts and plays a consistent game” says Natives Assistant GM/Head Scout Craig Anderson about Kasprick. Jory Kulbacki contributed 5 goals and added 12 assists to go along with 22 penalty minutes. “Jory is a very intelligent player that plays well in all 3 zones. He reads the game well and showed consistent development throughout the season” Anderson had to say about Kulbacki.

The entire Neepawa Natives organization would like to welcome Cooper, Jory and their families to the Natives.
