Jordan King is the leading scorer for the Amherst Ramblers.

His team is riding a five-game winning streak.

His team is holding down third place in the standings with a couple of games in-hand on those chasing them down.

It’s all good for King — a former star with the Western Kings major hockey program — as he talks about his hopes of playing university hockey when he’s finished playing Martime Junior A.

King has been doing a couple of university courses at Mount Allison University while he continues to rack up points — 20 goals and 34 assists this year — as one of the top offensive players in the league.

His hockey schedule doesn’t permit him time to take on much more right now, but he knows he only has one more year of junior eligibility left after this season so he has to to impress the right people to play at the university level.

He can return to the Ramblers next season as one of eight 20-year-olds allowed to be on the roster, but he hasn’t looked that far ahead.

He’s healthy and consistent so he’s confident he can make it happen.
