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!

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!
