It’s a day he almost didn’t think would ever come.
After a self-described roller coaster ride through junior hockey, Swift Current Broncos captain Jon Martin has his ticket to the big show.
The NHL’s San Jose Sharks have signed the Winnipeg product to a three year entry-level contract.
“It’s really exciting,” Martin said. “Just from where I’ve been it wasn’t easy at all… now that it has finally come it’s like hard work pays off.”
“I’ve always looked up to the underdogs and the guys who weren’t drafted. Don’t give up. If it looks bad keep going.”
