Monday, July 29, 2013, 6:32PM

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 off!

Gaudreau Named Hockey East Player of the Year!

Friday, March 29, 2013, 3:47PM

Endeavor Sports Performance is excited to announce that John Gaudreau has been named the Hockey East Player of the Year for the 2012-13 season. Gaudreau 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 playoffs!

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!

Monday, March 4, 2013, 2:20PM

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.

 

Melaragni Commits to Northeastern

Monday, March 4, 2013, 2:19PM

Endeavor 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!

 

Gaudreau and Team USA Win Gold!

Friday, February 8, 2013, 5:17PM

Endeavor is proud to announce that '93 Johnny Gaudreau won a gold medal with Team USA at this years' World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia over the holidays. After a slow start, Gaudreau and Team USA caught fire when it mattered, going 4-0 in elimination games and ultimately winning the coveted World Junior Championship. Johnny personally went on a tear scoring 7 goals and 2 assists in the final 4 games to finish with 9 points overall. This was good for the scoring lead for Team USA, and his 7 goals were tops in the tournament. Referred to by the announcers as "Johnny Hockey", Gaudreau was a force to be reckoned with for USA, and truly showed how much potential he has to play at the highest levels. Johnny's performance against a very strong Canada team (2 goals, 1 assist), may go down as the top performance of the entire tournament. Gaudreau was also named Team USA's Top Forward of the Tournament. "We are so proud of Johnny! He is so fun to watch out there. He continues to show at every level that he is one of the top players at his age level in the entire world. Each shift he creates great opportunities for both himself and his linemates, and always has a big smile on his face! His winning track record really speaks for itself at this point, and he has solidified his standing as one of the best American born players in recent memory! We are going to be watching him with amazement for years to come," said Gaudreau's former Team Comcast coach Jared Beach. We are sure one day Johnny will be playing for the Calgary Flames (Drafted in 2011, 4th round), but until then, he holds a place in US hockey history as the only player to win a USHL Championship (Dubuque Fighting Saints 2011), an NCAA Division 1 Championship (Boston College 2012), and a World Junior Championship (2013)! We wish Gaudreau the best of luck for the rest of this season and beyond!

Robinson Commits to Princeton

Thursday, January 3, 2013, 2:42PM

Endeavor Sports Performance is proud to announce that ’95 Eric Robinson from the Team Comcast U18 team has committed to Princeton University for the Fall of 2014. Eric chose Princeton after having also visited Lake Superior State and having a visit scheduled at Yale. Through 38 games thus far, Eric has 10 goals and 23 assists for 33 points. A long time member of Team Comcast, Eric has steadily developed his game over the past three years, going from the U16 American team to the U16 National team last year, and finally with the U18 team this season.

"We're very proud to have Eric make his college decision to attend Princeton. He has grown significantly over the past couple of years both physically and as a player. He is one of the smoothest skaters at the U18 level and is always dangerous with the puck on his stick. Eric is one of those players that can play with anyone and make them better. We are very confident he will be an impact player at Princeton in the coming years," said U18 Head Coach Jared Beach. With Eric's commitment, Team Comcast now has 6 players currently committed Division 1, the most out of any Midget team in the country. Team Comcast also boasts 36 players from the organization committing in the past 5 years, which puts the organization amongst the most successful midget programs in North America.

Endeavor is excited about their ongoing partnership with Team Comcast and is incredibly proud of all the hard work the Team Comcast players have put in over the last several years. Relentless hard work pays off. Eric and those Comcast players that have commited to Division I schools before him are living proof!
