Former VJW Player Shines in Hockey East
roebothan.jpgWhile the VJW Junior A team is battling tough competition in the Eastern Junior Hockey League (EJHL), many alumni are making news as top collegiate players.

This past week Hockey East recognized former VJW standout and current UMass-Lowell senior captain Mark Roebothan (shown left) as one of the league’s top performers after he netted two goals, including the game-winner, in a big win over Merrimack College.

Roebothan, who competed on the 2004-05 VJW squad, has been an integral part of the River Hawks’ success. He has amassed three goals and six assists in 18 games this season.

In that key Hockey East match up against Merrimack, Roebothan scored both of his goals in the third period, his first coming in the first five minutes of the period. His second goal, the game-winner, came at the 12:40 mark of the final period. As a result of his performance, Hockey East named Roebothan a Hockey East Weekly Top Performer.

Roebothan is just one of many former VJW players who have gone on to successful collegiate careers. Over the past decade, the Valley Jr Warriors program has consistently placed players in the top Division I, II and II schools in the country. Many of those student-athletes have used their VJW experience to make a positive impact on and off the ice.

Recent standouts include David Strathman (Northeastern University), Mark Pandolfo (UMass-Lowell) and Joe Cucci (Merrimack College).
