Loewen was born in Mandeville, Jamaica and has played with the Kamloops Blazers since the 2014-2015 season. He scored 36 goals, 28 assists, and 64 points in 66 games during the 2017-2018 season. At 6’4” and 220 pounds, he’s one of the bigger wingers to be picked by the Stars during this draft. His size works as an advantage for physical play and controlling the play in fast-paced play.
Derek shared his thoughts on Loewen’s style of play:
Dallas Stars take Jermaine Loewen at 199.— Derek Neumeier (@Derek_N_NHL) June 23, 2018
A huge overage power forward who developed an offensive element to his game this season
At 20 years of age, Loewen may be closer to making the NHL jump than several of the other draft picks made by the Stars this weekend. He has not committed to any minor or junior league team for the 2018-2019 season, so it’s still to be determined where we’ll see him next.
We’ll have more interviews and content in the coming days thanks to our staff at the draft in Dallas.
