The La Ronge Ice Wolves have announced that forward Sage Roberts, from the Lac La Ronge Indian Band, has signed a letter of intent with the team for the upcoming season.

The 2005-born forward spent last year with the Indigenous Sports Academy U17 club and in 33 regular season games, he tallied 51 points.

“I like to think I play a two-way game, but I can also add offence at times,” said Roberts in a media release about the signing. “The Ice Wolves were my favourite team growing up, so the opportunity to sign with them is unbelievable. Now, I’m gearing up to put in more work this summer.”

Roberts recently suited up for Team Saskatchewan at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championship in Winnipeg, MB.

“Sage had a great year at ISA and he keeps showing a lot of promise,” said Ice Wolves Head Coach/GM Kevin Kaminski in the release. “He led the league in goals. He’s a hard worker, has a lot of passion and he has been committed to play for the Ice Wolves since he’s been two.”

Roberts is the eighth new player to commit to the Ice Wolves for the upcoming SJHL season.
