Newbridge Academy is pleased to welcome Julian Kaser and Leandro Camuso from Switzerland to the Varsity U18 hockey team
Julian will be entering grade 9 for his first year at Newbridge Academy. He is excited to come to the school and make new friends. He looks forward to improving his game while playing high level hockey. He hopes to play NCAA or Major Junior hockey in the future.
“I watched Julian a few times this summer and was impressed with his overall position awareness. He knows where to be and when to be there before the play has fully developed. I’ve talked to many players who have had the chance to play with Julian and they’ve all said he has exceptional character and is a fantastic teammate,” said assistant Coach Damon MacEachern.
Leandro will also be starting grade 9 this year at Newbridge Academy and playing for the Varsity U18 team. He is excited about perfecting his English skills, playing hockey in Canada and studying away from home. He hopes to continue improving and play in the top league every year. “
“I had the chance to see Camuso play at the Andrews showcase in PEI and loved his compete level. Leandro protects his own end very well and can also offer offensive upside. He will be asked to play in difficult and high pressure situations with us which I know he will thrive,” said Coach MacEachern.
