Elmira Enforcers Add Forward Jesse Neher

by Jon Kliment

The Elmira Enforcers of the Federal Prospects Hockey League have made a trade for Jesse Neher from the Danville Dashers in exchange for Zach Pease.

Neher, a 26 year old forward from Calgary, AB, Canada, comes to Elmira after a successful rookie season in Danville. The left handed forward returns to New York after a four year stint with SUNY Plattsburgh from 2015-2019. In his rookie season Jesse scored 30 points in 34 games including 5 game winning goals. Neher also fired 122 shots on net.

When reached for comment Jesse said “I am very excited to come to Elmira. I have heard it is a great place to play and both Mitch Atkins and Hudson Michaelis told me about how amazing the fan base is. Trades are never easy, but with Coach Ray, he knows how to get the best out of his players and I think I will be able to keep growing my game.” Asked what fans of the Enforcers should know about his game game Neher said “I can get rough and I can score. I have confidence in my game and I always like to add some excitement.”

Pease played in 15 games for the Enforcers and scored 12 points. Zach’s speed and skill level made him a standout when Elmira traded for him from Columbus at the midpoint of the season.

Robbie Nichols told media members “An offseason calls for reevaluation of a roster. We felt we had a team last season ready to win a championship. With our new coach he has seen players that we didn’t know about and that could add something to our roster. Jesse was someone very high on Coach Tremblay’s list and we are very happy to add him to Elmira and chase a championship..”
