Endeavor is excited to welcome back Performance Specialist David Lasnier, after spending the last 2 years working for the Arizona Diamondbacks organization.
During his time with the Dbacks, David assessed, trained, and consulted with hundreds of Minor League players. After spending the first 3 months in Arizona for Spring Training and Extended Spring Training, David was assigned with the Hillsboro Hops in Oregon at the Rookie Ball level.
In his 2nd year, David was promoted to working with the South Bend Silver Hawks, the Class A affiliate of Arizona. David traveled with the team during both seasons, and was primarily responsible for designing in-season programs to keep the players healthy, a significant challenge with the game schedule in baseball. On top of his strength and conditioning responsibilities, David was also involved in the rehab process of injured players, was responsible for managing player recovery, and advised players regarding their nutrition and supplementation habits.
When asked about his return to Endeavor, David said, "I am extremely excited to be back to Endeavor after being away for 2 years. Working with the Diamondbacks was a great opportunity, but working at Endeavor is a special experience. The clients are a blast to work with, and the staff not only constantly pushes each other to get better, but they're all great people that really care about their clients. Endeavor has always felt like home for me, so I'm looking forward to rejoining the team."
On behalf of the entire Endeavor Staff and all of our clients, "Welcome home David!"

After a highly successful amateur career, Endeavor athlete Johnny Gaudreau, aka Johnny Hockey, took the NHL by storm finishing his inaugural season as the league's leading rookie scorer with 24 goals and 40 assists for 64 points in 80 games played.
Prior to this year, Johnny won the Hobey Baker Award as the top player in college hockey in 2013-14, a National Championship with Boston College his freshman year, a World Junior Championship with Team USA where he was named to the All-Tournament Team, and a USHL Clark Cup Championship and Rookie of the year selection. Despite his size at 5'9" and 155 lbs., Johnny has established himself as a rising star in the NHL, and a candidate for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's Rookie of the Year.
A 4th Round NHL Draft pick by the Calgary Flames in 2011, Johnny has spent the past 5 off-season's working hard at Endeavor to prepare himself to play at the highest level possible. The Endeavor staff wishes Johnny the best of luck as he begins his quest for the Stanley Cup in this year's NHL Playoffs!

Endeavor is excited to welcome home Director of Performance Kevin Neeld, after spending the last 3 weeks working with the USA Hockey's Women's National Team.
Kevin traveled with the team to Long Island where they held their preperatory camp at the Twin Rinks Ice Center at Eisenhower Park. During the camp, Kevin was responsible for the initial off- and on-ice performance testing, designing and implementing the team's off-ice training, and monitoring recovery of all the players. As the team transitioned into the tournament, Kevin also served as an adjunct Massage Therapist.
The team then headed to Malmö, Sweden where their hard work and preparation paid off as they went on to win 4-2, 4-1, and 9-2 over Canada, Finland, and Russia, respectively, in the round-robin. They then faced Russia again in the semi-finals, winning 13-1 before moving on to face Canada in the Gold Medal game. Despite jumping out to a quick lead, culminating with a 5-2 lead early in the 2nd period, Canada rallied to tie the game at 5 heading into the 3rd period. The tie wouldn't last long in the 3rd as Team USA's Brianna Decker popped in a pass from Hilary Knight (who was later named Tournament MVP and won the Directorate Award for Best Forward) for the go-ahead and eventual game winning goal. Final score: 7-5 USA.
Congratulations to the entire USA Hockey Women's National Team players and staff and welcome home Kevin!

Endeavor athlete Anthony DeAngelo has had a surreal last couple of years.
Last season, Anthony finished as the OHL's leading defensive scorer with 15 goals and 56 assists for 71 points in 51 games for the Sarnia Sting. As a result of his strong play, Anthony heard his name called 19th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft in his hometown of Philadelphia.
With high expectations on his last year in the OHL, Anthony delivered in a big way, finishing once again as the leading scorer amongst defensemen with 25 goals and 64 assists for 89 points in 55 games, while posting a +34 rating and 115 penalty minutes. As Sault Ste. Marie makes a run at the OHL Championship and the coveted Memorial Cup bid, Anthony has continued his stellar play as the Greyhounds lynchpin defensemen, averaging 2 points per game through his first 7 games with 14 assists. Anthony has been a hard-working Endeavor athlete since our inception, and we are excited to see him transition into his first year of pro hockey next fall!

For the third time in the past four years, Endeavor athletes have helped lead their respective teams to a Division 1 National Championship at the Frozen Four.
This year, Trevor Mingoia, Kyle McKenzie, and Robbie Hennessey starred for a Providence College team that entered the NCAA Tournament as an underdog 15th seed, and finished with Providence College's first National Championship with a big 4-3 win over Boston University.
The Frozen Four final was a back and forth battle led by BU 2-1 before Mingoia made a great play assisting on the second goal for Providence. After BU once again took the lead, Kyle McKenzie scored a fluky goal on a dump in to tie the score at 3 which lead to a big momentum shift for Providence. Shortly thereafter, PC scored the decisive 4th goal and held on to win the National Championship.
Congratulations to Mingoia, McKenzie, Hennessey, and the rest of the Providence College players and staff!
