Vernon Adds Four Year Junior A Veteran Defenseman Jake Emilio from Cobourg:

With only two returning defensemen, the Vernon Vipers added a significant piece to their blue line on Thursday, acquiring 20-year-old Jake Emilio from the Cobourg Cougars of the Ontario Junior Hockey League for future considerations.

Back in April, Cobourg announced that Emilio had committed to the NCAA Div. III Middlesbury College Panthers for this September, but I assume Vernon wouldn’t have traded for the Kleinburg, Ontario product if he wasn’t going to play for the Vipers. In fact, Emilio is in training camp with Vernon right now.

He’s a two-time OJHL All-Star, representing the East Division in 2012-13 and the North-East Conference last season.
