Hi Everyone – this is Paige Hunt. I’m head of media relations for the Clarington Quakes. I know you dropped by to meet Jake Ross today, but Jake isn’t really a big fan of this sort of thing. Not only is he an extremely talented player, but he’s humble with it and wouldn’t feel comfortable shifting the spotlight from the effort of the whole team. So, I made a deal with him – he’s off visiting a child in the hospital for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and, in return, I’m here covering this for him. Win-win all round. When Jake joined the Clarington Quakes hockey club late this season, it made headlines. And it hasn’t slowed down! Every time he steps on the ice, there’s reason to cheer. We’re excited to welcome him back to Clarington, where he grew up, and even more excited to watch him play for the Quakes. As Coach Mason said, “Jake brings an outstanding athleticism, a drive to win, and leadership on and off the ice.” He’s a talented player right in our own backyard. How lucky is that? The Quakes had an amazing playoff run this season and Jake Ross was on fire, leading the league in points. Right now, the team is enjoying a well-deserved summer break, but we can’t wait to see what next season holds – no doubt more magical hockey and maybe a playoff run that ends in a cup? It’s our time, Clarington! And keep your eye on Jake Ross – he’s hot!


Beyond the Face-Off

Kelly Danali has a big personality. She runs a pharmacy by day and lights up the local theatre scene by night. There’s nothing she craves more than a spot in the limelight. Jake Ross is a homegrown hockey star. He’s been traded back to the Clarington Quakes and spends most of his time avoiding the press and hockey-crazed fans.

Kelly wants to curb an alarming trend of drug abuse in local teens, and Jake, with his athleticism and sex appeal, would be the perfect spokesperson. Except there’s one problem – there’s nothing Jake craves more than privacy and solitude.

Jake finds Kelly irresistible and skates around the possibility of falling in love, but is she more attracted to hockey, fame, or him?

There’s more to love…Beyond the Face-Off.
