AML-awareness

Jaden made his NHL debut on March 17th, 2012 in Tampa Bay, skating on second line with Jamie Langenbrunner and Patrik Berglund. During the game, he scored his first NHL goal, a game winning goal, from his first NHL shot on the powerplay at the 19:24 mark of the first period when Schwartz intercepted a rebound in front of the net and beat the Lightning’s veteran goalie Dwayne Roloson.

He has an older brother Rylan who also plays hockey at Colorado College, and had an older sister, Mandi who played hockey with the Yale Bulldogs women’s ice hockey, until she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in December 2008. Despite trying to find a donor for Mandi, and in the process, raising awareness of bone marrow stem cell transplants Mandi died in April 2011 following a third relapse of the cancer.
