IHM Welcomes Estonian National Team Goalie Jogi
International Hockey Management is proud to announce the signing of Estonian goaltender, Christopher-Kullervo Jõgi. The 6’2, 163-lb left-catching netminder was born on June 16, 2000. Jõgi is a long-time National Team goaltender for Estonia, and former teammate of IHM clients Fabian Hast and Emil Svartbro. Jõgi is looking to play junior hockey in the United States, this year, and then explore possibilities at the collegiate level.
Jõgi is a two-time World Junior Championship Gold Medalist. His U18 team won all five games in 2016, in Valdemoro, Spain, in Division 2B. Then, Jõgi and Team Estonia returned in 2019 with a 4-1 record and just 7 total goals allowed, en route to another Gold Medal in Division 1B. This time, though, was ultra special; as they did it on home-ice, in Tallinn, Estonia. Jõgi did his part on way to the medal stand, posting the tournament’s best Goals Against Average (1.31) and Save Percentage (.945). Jugõ has also done it at the club level, as he was a Junior B Mestis Champion with KJT Haukat in Finland, during the 2017-2018 season. This past season, he split time with TPS U20 Akatemia in Finland’s Junior A Mestis, and TUTO Hockey U20 in Finland’s top Junior A SM-liiga. Jugõ played three games for TUTO hockey, posting a 2.00GAA.
International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented,
“CK has played on the big stage, and he’s excelled. Many players will never know the excitement or anxiety of playing in front of your home fans in a World Junior Championship. He’s been there, and he skated off that ice with a gold medal around his neck. This experience cannot be overstated, especially when it comes to the goaltending position. His time in Finland’s Junior A SM-liiga is also extremely valuable, as that platform has been home to more and more elite players, year after year. We at IHM are excited to help Christopher through this dual-process of the junior, and then, collegiate level.”
WELCOME TO THE IHM TEAM, Christopher-kullervo!
