Oshawa, Ont., – On Thursday afternoon, the Oshawa Generals announce they have traded defencemen David Jesus to the Niagara IceDogs in exchange for a 3rd round pick in 2025 and a 5th round pick in 2023.
Jesus was drafted by the Generals in the 12th round of the 2018 OHL Priority Selection and has been a staple on the blueline ever since. Appearing in 125 games as a General, Jesus tallied six goals and 27 assists for 33 points.
During his time as a General, he earned an invite from the Arizona Coyotes to join their rookie camp in 2021. Jesus also made his pro-hockey debut during the 2020-2021 season joining Liptovsky Mikulas of the Slovak Extraliga.
Jesus was also a big part of the #GensNation community. Awarded an assistant captaincy for the 2021-2022 season, he used his leadership skills both on and off the ice. Whether it was participating in the Future Generals Camp as a coach, or visiting staff when they needed it most, you could always count on him.
The entire Generals organization wants to thank David for his contributions to the team over the years and we wish him nothing but the best in his overage season with the Niagara IceDogs
