The Glasgow Clan are delighted to announce the triple signings of Quinn O’Brien, Jacob Sweeney and Medric Mercier from the University of Ottawa.
Forward O’Brien, 25-years-old, 6’ 3”, 220lbs, joins the Clan after four season’s with Ottawa, where he went on to captain the team during the 2019/20 season.
Defenceman Sweeney, 25-years-old, 6’ 4”, 214lbs, will also be travelling to Scotland after four season’s as an alternative captain with the Ottawa Gee-Gees.
Defenceman Mercier, 23-years-old, 6’ 3”, 214lbs, comes to Glasgow after three season’s in USports where he was team-mates of both O’Brien and Sweeney.
Clan Chief Operating Officer Gareth Chalmers commented: “I’d like to welcome Quinn, Jacob and Medric to the Glasgow Clan.
“It was important that we started to create a new core group of players and when the opportunity came around to sign all three from Ottawa, it made total sense.
“We’ve made the decision to focus on a younger team this season and recruiting ambitious, hungry, exciting players from NCAA and USports will very much play a part in that.
“Quinn, Jacob and Medric come highly recommended to us from our USports contacts and all opted for the Clan despite a lot of interest from other EIHL clubs and European teams.
“All three players will bring the hard working, committed, energy driven game that we’re looking to build the club around during the new season”.
