Rams announce Kamps as latest recruit
TORONTO - The Ryerson Rams men’s hockey team announced Friday that Jacob Kamps will join the Rams in the upcoming season, named as the sixth recruit of the 2018-19 recruiting class.
Kamps, a right-winger out of Pickering, Ont., has spent the last two seasons with the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the Central Canadian Hockey League (CCHL). In 60 games with the Lumber Kings, Kamps recorded 25 goals and 26 assists (51 points).
“Jacob is a big strong winger that plays a well-rounded game,” says Rams head coach Johnny Duco. “He is fast and physical and should add some toughness and speed to our line up.”
Prior to his stint in the CCHL, Kamps spent some time in western Canada, playing 16 games with the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) and Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) in 2016 before finally finding a home in Pembroke. He also appeared briefly for the Jersey Hitmen of the National Collegiate Development Conference (NCDC) at the start of last season.
“Jacob is another player that we have targeted for a few years and are very excited to add him to our program,” adds Duco.
Kamps will enter Ryerson’s Business Management program in September.
