Over the three years, Jaspers put in 116 regular season goals and finished third in OHL scoring in 1999-00 with 46 goals and 107 points, behind Sheldon Keefe of the Barrie Colts and teammate Norm Milley.
Jaspers has been playing in Germany’s Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) since 2006-07. His first three seasons were with Adler Mannheim (Mannheim Eagles). Last season he moved over to the Kolner Haie (Cologne Sharks) and has recently signed a contract through 2012 with the club.
Jason was drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in the third round of the 1999 NHL draft, 71st overall. From 2001-02 to 2003-04, Jaspers played a total of nine games with the Coyotes, spending the rest of his time in the AHL with the Springfield Falcons.
