The leaders of Genève-Servette Hockey Club are proud to announce that 27-year old Swiss striker Arnaud Jacquemet has signed up for a two-year extension until the end of the 2017-2018 season.
The striker from Valais joined the Geneva ranks before the 2013-2014 season and proved himself to be a versatile player, one of 12 twelve strikers available for any position and role and capable of filling in for any of his attacking teammates.
Since his arrival at Les Vernets, Arnaud has taken part in Genève-Servette Hockey Club’s two victories at the Spengler Cup. He gives the team his all and is always willing to put his body on the line to block a shot in defence, or go forward when the team attacks.
Chris McSorley: ’We are very happy to announce that Arnaud Jacquemet has extended his contract. Arnaud is one of the architects of our success in previous campaigns. He is the kind of player a coach appreciates: intelligent, capable of playing in different positions, able to follow the plan to the letter. He is the player who best embodies our ethos: hard work, perseverance and the will to win.’
Arnaud Jacquemet: ’I am very happy with this extension. By the end of my contract, I’ll have spent five years with GSHC, the longest time I’ve ever spent with the same team. My partner and I are very happy in Geneva and this situation inspired me ask my agent to negotiate an extension. Everything has happened as I had hoped it would. I am very proud to wear the jersey for another two years. I have progressed a lot under Chris McSorley’s guidance and since the beginning of the season have had more game time, especially in important situations. Chris knows how I play and I do everything I can to meet his expectations. Giving me this extension so early in the season is his vote of confidence in me’
