Ice Hockey. Joshua Ess strengthens the defense of the Scorpions of Mulhouse

The Mulhouse Scorpions (League Magnus) formalized the arrival of defender Joshua Ess (23) on Tuesday. He will be the 4th American – after Colin Downey, Tommy Besinger and recent rookie Alex Berardinelli – to wear the Mulhouse jersey.

Drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in 2017 (in the 7th round in 215th position), Joshua Ess never knew the NHL, but he played for the prestigious Badgers of the University of Wisconsin in the NCAA… like a certain Steven Reinprecht , the Canadian world champion who guided Mulhouse to the title in 2005 during the NHL lockout.

“Joshua is a complete defender, who is able to play both in inferiority and in numerical superiority”, underlines the coach of the Scorpions Kévin Hecquefeuille. “He’s mobile, he’s a good skater who works hard and is aggressive. He has everything of a modern defender. Joshua had been drafted in the NHL, which shows that he is a good prospect. We are very happy to have him with us for the next season! »
