The Portage Terriers now have just one 20-year-old on their roster.

With Monday's trade of former team captain Logan Calder, local forward Jaden Pashe is the last graduating player on the Terriers' roster this season. He describes what his mentality will be the rest of the season knowing he's the lone veteran on the roster.

"It's unfortunate that we lost Logan, he was my other 20 and I played with him growing up, so it was nice to play with him again," Pashe explains. "Going ahead, I'm just going to keep doing the same things that I've been doing. Everyone's young so I have to just keep doing what I do, working every day to get better and trying to win games on the weekend."

The local product places third on the team in points this season as he has put up 14 in 31 games of action this season. Pashe has 52 points in the entirety of his MJHL career, most of which was spent with the OCN Blizzard.

Pashe says his number one goal for the second half of the season is to get back to playing his game, which he describes as getting into the corners, playing gritty, and scoring the odd goal. He outlines how he's adjusted to fit in with all the youth in Portage.

"I just keep my head down and keep playing hard," says Pashe. "There are a lot of young guys that we have that are absolutely unreal at the game, so I just have to keep playing as hard as I can to keep up."

The local says he will be trying to take on some extra leadership responsibilities now that Calder is in Dauphin but notes that will be a tall task since he did an amazing job. Pashe describes what he wants to accomplish in his final MJHL season.

"Obviously, I want to win a championship," says Pashe. "Going forward I just want to keep playing as well as I can."
