Sports Performance is proud to announce a pair of Division 1 hockey
commitments to American International College. '92 Dom Racobaldo and '92
Mike Dietrich have committed for this upcoming fall. For Dom, this
commitment comes after spending the past three seasons in the USHL for
the Omaha Lancers and Fargo Force. Last season, Racobaldo had 7 goals
and 13 assists for 20 points in 60 games while also contributing 72
penalty minutes manning the blueline for Omaha. Next season at AIC, Dom
should be a significant freshman contributor to the AIC defensive core.
Dietrich, the commitment to attend and play forward for AIC comes after
helping lead his Minnesota Wilderness team to the semi-finals of the
Royal Bank Cup in Canada. Mike finished the regular season last year
with 28 goals and 49 assists for 77 points while contributing another 15
points in the playoffs. Both totals led the league, and Mike also
managed to lead the league in game winning goals with 6. Other accolades
Mike received during last season include being named Most Sportsmanlike
Player at the RBC Cup, RBC Cup Legacy Scholarship recipient, Finalist
for RBC-CJHL Player of the Year, SIJHL's Playoff MVP, and finally the
SIJHL Player of the Year award. We wish both Dom and Mike the best of
luck next season!
Endeavor Sports Performance is proud to announce that '93 Roman Ammirato
has committed to play Division 1 college hockey at Union College for
the fall of 2014. Despite being a small player, Roman has worked
incredibly hard to develop his game and his body to become a Division 1
player. Last season while playing for the Cornwall Colts and the
Hawkesbury Hawks in the CCHL, Roman produced in a big way. Finishing
fourth in league scoring with 34 goals and 49 assists for 83 points in
61 games established Ammirato as a true scoring
threat. Roman is another former Team Comcast player to earn a Division 1
spot this year. We wish Roman the best of luck at Union College!
Endeavor Sports Performance is proud to announce that Eamon McAdam
was drafted by the New York Islanders in the 3rd round of the 2013 NHL
Entry Draft, 70th overall. Leading up to the draft, Eamon trained
especially hard to prepare for the NHL Combine, where he placed first in
the Vertical Jump test with a score of 28.5 inches, a nearly 4 inch
increase since beginning his spring training at Endeavor. Next season, McAdam
will be playing for Penn State University in their Big 10 inaugural
campaign. We wish Eamon the best of luck! Hard work and persistence pay
Endeavor Sports Performance is proud to announce that Anthony
DeAngelo has been invited to the 2013 United States World Junior Team
tryouts this August 3rd - 10th.
This past season DeAngelo had 9 goals and 49 assists for 58 points in
62 games played for the Sarnia Sting in the OHL. At 17 years old,
Anthony has two years of experience in the OHL, and is not NHL Draft
eligible until 2014. DeAngelo is one of 40 U.S. skaters competing for a
spot on this year's World Junior team that will compete in the World
Junior Championships held December 26th through January 5th in Malmo, Sweden.
An Endeavor client for the past 4 years, Anthony has
worked incredibly hard to develop himself into one of the top '95 born
defensemen in North America. We wish Anthony the best of luck at the WJC
tryouts in August!
Endeavor's Pitman and Pennsauken locations will be closed Saturday May 25th through Monay May 27th in observance of Memorial Day. Regular training sessions will resume on Tuesday. Enjoy the weekend off!
Endeavor Sports Performance is excited to announce that John Gaudreau
has been named the Hockey East Player of the Year for the 2012-13
began his second season at Boston College with at least one point in
each of his first 12 games, including nine goals and nine assists during
a 10-game win streak for the Eagles. Despite a short absence from the
team during the World Junior Championships (Where Gaudreau finished as
Team USA's leading scorer and a key factor to their Gold Medal
finish), Gaudreau still managed to finish the regular season as the
leading scorer in Hockey East, as well as leading all Division I players with a 1.48 points-per-game average, spearheading the nation's No. 2 overall offense. He
closed the regular season in dramatic fashion, scoring twice and
setting up four of the five other BC goals in a 7-2 win at Vermont,
which propelled him four points ahead of Merrimack's Mike Collins for
the scoring title. Gaudreau is just the fourth underclassman in league
history to be selected as Player of the Year, joining NHL legends Brian
Leetch and Paul Kariya (both chosen after dominant freshman seasons) and
current BC associate head coach Greg Brown (1988-89). Gaudreau was also
recently named one of ten finalists for the Hobey Baker Award,
presented annually to college hockey's best player. John is one of only
two sophomores up for the award this year. We wish John the best of luck
as he helps lead the Boston College Eagles into the NCAA Division 1
Endeavor Sports Performance is proud to announce that Buddy Robinson has
signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Ottawa Senators in
the NHL. Robinson recently completed his
sophomore season at Division 1 Lake Superior State, where the Lakers
lost to Bowling Green in the first round of the Central Collegiate
Hockey Association playoffs.
A native of Bellmawr, N.J., Robinson played in 38 games this past
season, scoring 8 times and adding 8 assists, while recording 48 penalty
minutes. In two years with the Lakers, he recorded 26 points (13 goals,
13 assists), while registering 85 penalty minutes over 77 games.
Prior to attending Lake Superior State, the 6-5, 236-pound winger,
spent parts of two seasons (2009-10 and 2010-11) with the Hamilton Red
Wings of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (Tier II) where he tallied 61
points (26 goals and 35 assists) and 101 penalty minutes over 81 games.
Robinson played the final 19 games of the 2010-11 season with
the CCHL’s Nepean Raiders where he recorded 24 points (five goals, 19
assists) and 20 penalty minutes.
We wish Buddy the best of luck as he begins his professional career!
Endeavor Sports Performance is excited to announce that Dylan Plitt has accepted a scholarship to the University of Vermont. Dylan committed to UVM after visiting Vermont, Providence and
UMass-Amherst. As a captain for the Team Comcast U18 team, Dylan had 7
goals and 13 assists for 20 points in 16 games played prior to committing to UVM. A second year player for the U18 team, Dylan’s experience and
skill set has helped Team Comcast to a great start. “It is a real
pleasure coaching Dylan. He is one of the most skilled players to come
through our organization, and a very coachable kid. His combination of
skill and grit will serve him well at the Division 1 level. You can
always count on Dylan to make a few plays each game that are highlight
reel worthy, while also making the smart, simple plays that put him
amongst the elite,” said U18 Head Coach Jared Beach. Dylan was the 5th
player off the Team Comcast U18 team to commit Division 1 this year, and
the 35th player from the organization to commit in the past 5 years.
Sports Performance is proud to announce that '98 Dave Melaragni has
committed to Northeastern University for the Fall of 2016. Dave is a 6'
left-handed defenseman currently playing for Team Comcast's '98 Bantam
Major team. The team is currently ranked 3rd in the country, and should
be in contention for a USA Hockey National Championship in April.
Melaragni spent the previous 3 years playing for the Team Comcast '97
team, and decided to return to his birth year to showcase his skill and
compete against his peers while helping a very strong '98 team make a run
at Nationals. Dave is a team player and an ultra competitive kid that
understands individual success comes through team success. This has
allowed him to flourish and be a key contributor on one of the nation's
top Bantam Major teams. Dave is the 8th Endeavor athlete to commit
Division 1 for hockey this season, and we expect several more in the
coming months! We wish Dave the best of luck as he prepares for Division
1 hockey at Northeastern!
