April 20, 2020
During the current and unforeseen cancelation of the 2019-20 season, the players in the NAHL saw their seasons cut prematurely short. In some cases, players saw their junior hockey careers come to an end as well. However, the NAHL got together a decided to highlight some of those players, who were born in 1999 and were in their final season of playing junior hockey.
As a result, we present a new series entitled: 50 players in 50 days
50 players in 50 days will select 50 players from each of the 26 NAHL teams this past season that were born in 1999, are currently uncommitted, and deserve some recognition during their time spent playing and developing in the NAHL. Over the course of the next 50 days, we will take time out to look at their accomplishments, review their season, and provide some background on their NAHL careers. Players will be initially highlighted in alphabetical order by team. Enjoy!
Odessa Jackalopes forward Kam Ottenbriet, 20, recently completed his final season of junior hockey with the Jackalopes this season, which was his first in the NAHL.
The 6’1/174 lbs. native of Grosse Ile, Michigan, appeared in 48 games this season with the Jackalopes and recorded eight points (3 goals, 5 assists).
“Kam has been a pleasure to coach this season. He is a smart player who has a great work ethic and is a terrific teammate. He played in all situations for us this season. He’s a team first guy who is always putting in the extra work to improve his game. He’s extremely dedicated and I’m excited to see what the future holds for him,” said Adam Phillips, who was the interim coach for the Jackalopes this past season.
Prior to playing in the NAHL, Ottenbreit played his youth hockey for both the Belle Tire and Cleveland Jr. Barons organizations.
