Jesse Sazant's "Canadians in Europe" Report

Once again, much thanks to former Carleton Ravens assistant coach Jesse Sazant, now in the U.K., for his periodic report on CIS Alumni now playing in European pro leagues. As Jesse mentions in his latest email, he is happy to try to track down other ex-CIS players not currently in his report who people know of over here. Please email me and I can get the messages to Jesse for future reports. The newest additions to this report include former Ottawa Gee-Gee Ali Mahmoud and Ryan Marrast, ex-Lakehead and Acadia.
