Tommies add former OHL Sniper

The official Tommies release:

STU Tommies Welcome Jadran Beljo

St. Thomas University men’s hockey team is pleased to announce that forward Jadran Beljo from Sudbury, Ontario has committed to the Tommies for the upcoming season.

“I like to help out the team any way I can but my best assets would probably be setting up and finishing plays in the offensive zone. I'm excited to come to St. Thomas to rebuild and hopefully be a part of a winning team for the next few years. I look forward to getting my education in a beautiful city, and rebuilding to hopefully bring back a championship to St. Thomas in the near future.” said Beljo.

Jadran is an offensively gifted forward who has played five seasons in the OHL. Beljo had consecutive 30+ goals seasons with Mississauga and London in 06-07 and 07-08 respectively. The Tommies are excited to have Beljo on board as they look to rebuild the team after missing the play-offs in 08-09.

"Jadran is the type of quality player and person that the Tommies are looking for. He is an intelligent player that has a very good stick and skates well. We are really looking forward to having him in our lineup," said Head Coach Mike Eagles. Photo Credit: Official OHL site.

  1. Another piece. This and that Deitrich guy. Going in the right direction.

  2. And probably Matt Eagles too...key elements to a first or second line

  3. Dietrich plays senior right? He takes so many penalties haha, he has one of the most penalty minutes in the league and has only got in 2 fights.

  4. Beljo is second in scoring on a London team that is stacked.


    And getting Dietrich is good too, always need some more energy, especially an ex-UNB player who would want to prove his spot extra hard.

  5. Well, London wasn't so stacked last year when he played on them...nonetheless it seems like a very solid pick-up by STU, definitely going in the right direction. The only thing I wonder is that his last year of junior was 07/08 according to his hockeydb page...where did he play this past season?

  6. He had an "upper body" injury similar to what Diane Todd had. Same result as Todd as well. No hockey for 08-09.

  7. The Beljo aquisition is a good start.........bring on 1/2 dozen more for starters.
