Bowling Green loses defenseman Ernst to OHL’s Sting

Jordan Ernst, who played the second half of the 2015-16 season on the Bowling Green blue line, has left school and signed with the Ontario Hockey League’s Sarnia Sting.

Originally selected fifth overall by the Madison Capitals in Phase II of the 2015 United States Hockey League Draft, Ernst played in 16 games with the club, tallying four assists last season.

He left the Capitals in December to join Bowling Green, where he registered two assists in 15 contests.

Ernst was not drafted by Sarnia and signed as a free agent.
