Jaden enjoyed an outstanding season with the Richmond Roadrunners — leading to the team to a berth in the Midget A2 Provincial Championships where he earned all-star honours. 

He was also a frequent call-up for the Roadrunners Junior “B” Tier One squad where he played alongside Josh who served as the team captain.

The Midget Draft is for players who played in associations not affiliated with teams in the junior “A” league.
