The Weyburn Red Wings announced two commitments over the past week.

Jacob Visentini, 21, will be heading to Vancouver Island University for the 2024-2025 BCIHL campaign.

Visentini, a forward out of Saskatoon, posted 42 points in in 53 games this past year for the Wings, and featured in all seven of Weyburn’s Round 1 post-season series with the Humboldt Broncos.

A former Saskatoon Contact U18AAA, he was acquired by Weyburn at the 2023 Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League Draft last June from the La Ronge Ice Wolves. Split between the Wolves and Wings, Jacob played in 147 SJHL contests from 2021 to 2024.

Jeffreys, 20, began the campaign in the North American Hockey League with Amarillo, but returned to Weyburn and the SJHL after nine games. The Grand Rapids, MI native featured in 101 regular and post-season games for the Wings between 2022 and 2024, and counted 24 points as a physical, shutdown defenceman.

He will be heading to NCAA Division III Marian University in Wisconsin.
