Jackson Cressey joins EHC Freiburg

Reading time: approx. 1 Minute

Born in West Vancouver, Canada, the right-wing shooter learned to play ice hockey in the home country of ice hockey before joining Princeton University, where he was able to celebrate winning the high-ranking college championship in the 2017/18 season. After leaving college, Cressey made the leap to Europe, wearing the shirt of Tyringe SoSS in the Swedish second division in the 2020/21 season. The prolific striker scored 18 points in 20 games for the Swedes. He then spent the past season with the Reading Royals in the North American ECHL, where he was able to score another twelve goals and 14 assists in 60 main round games.

Peter Salmik, sports director of EHC Freiburg: “When the opportunity arose for us to sign such a player with a German passport, we didn’t hesitate for long. Jackson is still relatively early in his professional career and fits our profile perfectly as a hard-working and determined legal shooter. We also hope that he will further ignite the competition up front and we are convinced that he will take the next step with us.”

Head coach Robert Hoffmann adds: “Jackson has the ability to read and anticipate the game very well. He is also physically strong and a very valuable player in front of goal, who is not above going where it hurts. We are very happy and pleased that we were able to convince such a player from Freiburg and that he is now part of our team.”
