Kristian Jaksch Biography

Thursday, 31 August 2017
Giant Kristian Jaksch is delisted by Carlton.

He was taken at pick 12 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft by the Giants and played just seven games for the AFL's newest franchise.

In a costly trade, Carlton gave up pick seven to secure Jaksch in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft, as part of a deal that also brought midfielder Mark Whiley to Ikon Park.

The Blues also got pick 19 in the deal, with which they selected midfielder Blaine Boekhorst.

Tuesday, 10 February 2015
Kristian Jaksch is eyeing off a start in the NAB Challenge after resuming full training since recovering from a stress reaction in his left foot in mid-November last year.

The initial prognosis had Jaksch missing most of season 2015. However further scans and consultation with experts showed the 20-year-old had avoided a serious injury.

"Initially we got the scans and we thought it was a lot worse than it was," Jaksch said.

"I was a little bit worried. But we did our full diligence here, saw all the scans and experts and it turned out to be not as bad."

Tuesday, 16 December 2014
Kristian Jaksch's foot injury is not as bad as first thought, with the Blues confident he will resume full training at the start of January.

"Kristian is out of the moon boot and is back training, while continuing to be monitored," Blues football manager Andrew McKay said.

"We expect him to resume full-contact training in the new year."

Monday, 17 November 2014
Carlton recruit Kristian Jaksch has suffered an early setback at his new club after scans revealed a navicular injury that will keep him sidelined from pre-season training until at least January.

"It's clearly disappointing for both Kristian and the club, but we are lucky to have found this early," Blues general manager of football operations Andrew McKay said.

"After initial assessment we are very confident that Kristian will not need surgery, however, the specialist appointment tomorrow will confirm that."

Wednesday, 15 October 2014
Kristian Jaksch and Mark Whiley are officially Carlton players after the Blues and Greater Western Sydney finally signed off on a trade that has been almost two weeks in the making.

Carlton made key-position player Jaksch its top trade target this year and the Blues got their man on Wednesday when GWS agreed to send him, inside midfielder Whiley and pick No.19 to Visy Park in exchange for pick No.7.

"Securing Kristian was certainly a priority for us this trade period and we're rapt to have got the deal done," Carlton football manager Andrew McKay said.

"We see him as a player who is going to give us another tall marking option, as well as flexibility, given he can play forward and back.

"While he is still developing, we believe he will be a 10-year player for our football club.

"Mark is tough inside midfielder, who is terrific around the stoppages. He will give us more ball-getting capability in the midfield."

Monday, 6 October 2014
The Bulldogs have ruled out luring Greater Western Sydney forward Kristian Jaksch who has requested a trade back to Victoria.

"We certainly know Kristian well. We did a lot of work on him in his [under-18s] year and he's got connections through some of our players (Nathan Hrovat and Jack Macrae) who went to school with him," Bulldogs recruiting manager Simon Dalrymple said.

"Where he probably sits in terms of our picks, we don't think it's a realistic option. There hasn't been any contact made at all."

Thursday, 4 September 2014
GWS confirm that Sam Frost and Kristian Jaksch have both asked for a return to their home state.

"While we understand their decisions, we are disappointed to lose two highly talented key position players after spending considerable time developing them," GWS general manager football Graeme Allan said.

"We will now pursue what we consider to be fair and equitable trades for both players during the forthcoming trade period."

Sunday, 25 August 2013
Kristian Jaksch makes his debut for the Giants in round 22 against Richmond, the team he supported growing up.

"It's been a pretty long year, some ups and downs with injuries, so to finally get my first game I'm over the moon," Jaksch said before the game.

"I was a Tigers man growing up and same with the whole family, so they might be a bit split on who to go for."

Kristian Jaksch makes his AFL debut for GWS with 10 disposals (6 kicks and 4 handballs), 6 marks, a tackle and a goal in a 121-point loss to Richmond.
