Goaltender DeSerres returns to Eagles

WINDSOR, Colo. – The Colorado Eagles announced that they have re-signed goaltender Jacob DeSerres
for the 2015-16 season.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound netminder joined the Eagles late last season as an amateur and posted a 1.94 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage in two regular season starts. He also went on to see action in two playoff games for the Eagles against the Ontario Reign. He also saw action in one American Hockey League contest with the Adirondack Flames.

Prior to arriving in Colorado, DeSerres spent the previous four seasons at the University of Calgary, where he was named the CIS “Goaltender of the Year” during the 2013-14 season, while also being named to the CIS All-Canadian First Team during that same season. The Calgary, Alberta native went 32-13-2 in 48 total games with the Dinos, registering a 2.19 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.

DeSerres also spent five seasons at the major-junior level with the Seattle Thunderbirds and Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL, leading Brandon to the Memorial Cup Finals in 2010. He concluded his junior career by backstopping the St. John Sea Dogs to a QMJHL Championship and ultimately a Memorial Cup championship in 2011. DeSerres appeared in 154 regular season games at the major junior level, posting a record of 93-47-5, to go along with a goals-against average of 2.67 and a .906 save percentage.

DeSerres was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the third round (84th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft after finishing the 2007-08 season tied for the best save percentage in the WHL at .922.
