Former Jet David Jacobson Named D3 Player of the Year!
LEWISTON, MAINE — Junior goaltender David Jacobson of St. Norbert College has been chosen by the nation's ice hockey coaches as the 2014 winner of the Sid Watson Award Award, symbolic of the nation's best Division III men's ice hockey player. The 5-9, 165-pound native of Janesville, Wisconsin, went 22-1-1 this year with a 1.24 GAA and a save percentage of .935. The Northern Collegiate Hockey Association Player of the Year was a prime reason St. Norbert advanced to this weekend's NCAA Division III Men's Ice Hockey Championship in Lewiston, Maine. Jacobson and St. Norbert will meet Geneseo State at 4:00 p.m. on Friday.
Primarily due to the heroics of Jacobson, St. Norbert enjoyed a 13-game stretch from January 18 to March 8 in which they allowed more than one goal in only one game. This streak included seven shutouts and a team GAA of 0.69.
Jacobson first came to St. Norbert as a freshman in 2011-12. He started the season as a backup on a very young team that had graduated 11 seniors from the NCAA Championship team in 2011. In January of 2012, with the team sporting a record of 7-4-4, he took over the starting job and SNC went 14-1-1 on its way to back-to-back NCAA titles. David was rewarded as a second team All-American and as the 2012 Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player. He finished the year with 25 GP, 1.53 GAA and .936 save percentage.
As a sophomore, Jacobson played varsity soccer and led the team in scoring and shots on goal before returning to the hockey team for opening weekend. SNC won the playoff championship and lost to eventual 2013 NCAA Champion UWEau Claire. He was All-Conference and finished the year with 28 GP, 1.61 GAA and .931 save percentage. A first team All American this season, Jacobson sports career numbers of 1.47, .934, and 61-9-5.
The award is named in honor of former Bowdoin College head coach Sid Watson, a three-time winner of the Edward Jeremiah Award as Division III Coach of the Year. Watson won 326 at Bowdoin in a career that spanned from 1959 to 1983. He was also the school's athletic director.
The runner-up for the 2014 Sid Watson Award was Jackson Brewer, a junior forward from Trinity College and Newton, MA.

Halladay Named Goaltender of the Month in NAHL
FRISCO, TEXAS – The North American Hockey League (NAHL) has announced its monthly player awards for the month of December. The Easton Hockey NAHL Forward of the Month is Tayler Munson from the Fairbanks Ice Dogs. The Easton Hockey NAHL Defenseman of the Month is Brandon Parker from the Brookings Blizzard. The Brian’s Custom Sports NAHL Goaltender of the Month is Logan Halladay from the Janesville Jets. Only players who are nominated by their respective teams are considered for the NAHL monthly awards.
Brian’s Custom Sports NAHL Goaltender of the Month: Logan Halladay, Janesville Jets
The NAHL has a rich history of producing players that make it all the way to the NHL and although he is just 17-years-old, Janesville Jets goaltender Logan Halladay may be an early candidate of one day joining that long list of names, particularly at the goaltending position. The native of Cary, North Carolina enjoyed a perfect month of December, as the Jets got right back in the playoff race in the North Division. The Jets went 5-1 with Halladay (6’2/180) picking up all five wins and no losses. It capped off a streak of eight consecutive starts that Halladay didn’t lose a game. Halladay allowed just seven goals in six appearances giving him a goals against average of just 1.32 during the month. He stopped 192 of 199 shots that came his way, which was good for a 96.5% save percentage during December. He recorded a career-high 51 saves in a 2-1 win over Springfield back on December 13th. Halladay has a 10-4-1 record to date with a 2.55 goals against average and a 92.7% save percentage, which ranks 9th in the NAHL. He is also an NAPHL graduate, having played for the Carolina Jr. Hurricanes 16U team during the 2011-12 season. “Logan was giving our team confidence and giving us a chance to win every night, which is why we continued to try and ride that momentum. Although he is young, he is a pro when it comes to taking care of himself and making sure he is physically and mentally prepared to handles the rigors of the position,” said Jets head coach Joe Dibble. “We know there are a lot of eyes on him right now, but it is all about the team success with Logan. He puts the Jets first and he knows that his performance is 100% about the team. He is mature beyond his years and has a very bright future ahead of him at the next levels of hockey.”
As for Halladay, he echoed Dibble’s sentiment about team success being first and foremost in his mind, especially with the success in December. “I think we got back to having fun and really tried to take in each moment. Playing at this level is something not a lot of guys get to do, so we tried to focus on just playing in a team concept. I wanted to slow things down and not put so much pressure on myself. I was happy to be out there and doing well and not let the stats dictate my attitude towards it,” said Halladay. “I would love to play college and pro hockey someday and that is definitely something I think about, but I don’t allow myself to think about it a whole lot. Our coaches have kept us focused on getting better one day at a time and just preparing for the next practice and game. I just want to become a better and more experienced goalie each time I step on the ice.”
Jets Announce New Assistant Coach
Janesville, Wis. - The Janesville Jets, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) have announced the hiring of Erik Largen as the Jets new assistant coach. Coach Largen replaces former Jets Assistant Coach Jason Dobes and will begin his duties on January 1, 2014.
“I am very excited about Erik joining the Jets. He brings much more to the table then just coaching experience. He has a great eye for talent and knows what it takes as a coach to develop hockey players on and off of the ice. Erik is very passionate about what he does and cares about his players. This is a tight nit family here in Janesville and we had to make sure we brought the right guy in and we know we found the perfect fit,” said Jets Head Coach Joe Dibble.
Coach Largen comes to the Jets with a wealth of playing and coaching experience. Largen played in the NAHL for the North Iowa Outlaws and the Southern Minnesota Express prior to playing Division 1 college hockey at the University of Alaska – Fairbanks.
Largen served as assistant coach of the Fairbanks Ice Dogs of the NAHL in 2009-10 and 2010-11. The Ice Dogs were the runner-up in the Robertson Cup in 2010 and won the Robertson Cup championship in 2011.
Largen was head coach of the Twin Cities Northern Lights in the Minnesota Junior Hockey League in 2011-12 and 2012-13. The Northern Lights compiled an impressive 87-9-2 regular season record under Coach Largen and qualified for the USA Hockey Tier III National Tournament in both years and finished as Tier III National runner-up last season.
Largen has been an assistant coach with the Tri-City Storm in the United States Hockey League (USHL) this season.
“It is never easy making a coaching change mid-season, said Jets President Bill McCoshen. Jason Dobes worked hard and we sincerely appreciate everything he did for the Jets the past 2 ½ seasons. Our hockey model is different than most teams in our league. The Jets are young by NAHL standards, but loaded with talent. My partners and I felt we needed to bring in someone with higher level playing and coaching experience to complement the great work Head Coach Joe Dibble has done in Janesville. Our primary job as an organization is to develop and promote our players to the highest college level possible, and we believe this move will help us achieve that goal,” said McCoshen.
Halladay & Avolio Recognized by league
Jets Goaltender Logan Halladay and forward Zach Avolio were recognized by the league for their efforts in the two game sweep of Coulee Region this weekend.

On Friday, Halladay (6’2/180) made a career-high 51 saves in a 2-1 win and on Saturday, he stopped 32 shots in a 3-2 win. Halladay’s 93.1% save percentage now ranks 7th in the NAHL and he hasn’t suffered a loss in a game since November 3rd. “Logan has been unbelievable. There is a lot of attention on him right now by NHL and NCAA scouts and he has handled it with maturity,” said Jets head coach Joe Dibble. “He gave up some early goals in both games, but he immediately bounced back and maintained his focus. He plays hard and works hard for this team and that is very inspiring to his teammates.”
