TRUE Hockey and Columbus Blue Jacket Prospect Oliver Bjorkstrand Announce Multi-Year Partnership
Memphis, TN – TRUE Hockey announced today an official partnership with Western Hockey League (WHL) Scoring Champion and Columbus Blue Jacket prospect Oliver Bjorkstrand.
Through the multi-year partnership, Oliver will use TRUE hockey sticks and gloves and sit on the TRUE Players Advisory Board where he will have an active voice in providing feedback for new product lines.
“Our goal at TRUE hockey is continued innovation and to bring high performance, transformational technologies to the stick and equipment market,” Jason Jenne, President and CEO of True Temper Sports said. “Adding players such as Oliver to our growing list of elite amateur and professional hockey players is further evidence that the innovation and investment we make into research and development is truly translating at the player level to performance and positive experience with our product. After a standout presence at the World Junior Championship and continued scoring prowess in the WHL, we have no doubt Oliver is destined for a long and successful career in the National Hockey League, and are very excited to have him as a TRUE player.”
Oliver completed an outstanding regular season with 118 points (63 goals) on his way to winning the WHL (Western Hockey League) Scoring Title despite having played 10 fewer games than the next closest player. His story book season included a standout performance at the World Junior Championships as well as a recent four goal performance against the Seattle Thunderbirds on March 6th, 2015. He is a pure goal scorer with a nose for the net and is expected to help bolster the Blue Jackets offense in the coming years.
“I knew immediately that TRUE Hockey was the right choice for me. The innovation and expertise that goes in to creating TRUE products provides me with everything I need to perform on the ice”, Bjorkstrand said.
