by Matt Mackinder

The defending President's Cup champion Essa Stallions have re-signed defenseman Jacob Ljungstrom for the 2019-20 CPJHL season, his third with The Herd.

“Jacob is a solid, stay-at-home defenseman with access to a huge cannon," said Essa head coach Sylvain Cloutier. "We are looking forward to him patrolling the blue line for us again this year.”

Last season, the 1999-born Ljungstrom posted six goals and 25 points in 39 games for the Stallions.

In his rookie season of 2017-18, Ljungstrom recorded a goal and two assists over seven games.
