The Calgary Hitmen Hockey Club is proud to congratulate alumnus Jake Bean on winning the American Hockey League’s Calder Cup.

Bean and the Charlotte Checkers defeated the Chicago Wolves 5-3 tonight to claim the championship series in five games, capping an outstanding season for the first-year pro who was earlier named to the AHL’s All-Rookie Team.

The Carolina Hurricanes prospect had an illustrious career during parts of four seasons with the Hitmen highlighted by a pair of franchise records.  In 2015-16 he tallied 24 goals to set a new single-season franchise mark for goals by a blueliner while in 2014-15 he also established a club record for most points by a rookie defenceman with 39.

Bean is a two-time winner of the Hitmen Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop Top Defenceman Award and has also received the Hitmen Booster Club Fan Favourite Award, Chrysler Canada Inc. Scholastic Player Award and RE/MAX Rookie of the Year honour in addition to being named WHL Eastern Conference Most Sportsmanlike Player in 2015-16 and a WHL Second Team All-Star in 2016-17.
