    From what I have read he is a hard working, give it his all, grinder type. Plenty of those on the roster already.

    “I see myself as a two-way forward. I like to be gritty, but I feel like I have a skill side, too,” Robbins said. “The expectations I have for myself, I always like to set my standards high. I would love to be the leading scorer. As long as I think that way, I’m always motivated that I can do it.”

    “I believe it was my work ethic,” Robbins said. “I always try and put out 110 percent on every shift.

    Leading returning scorer Zac Robbins hopes to increase production for C.R. RoughRiders

    UConn commit Drew Elser has lead the U18's in goals this season so far with 13. St Lawrence commit Nick Wildgoose also a nice fall (10-9-19)

    Can anyone who follows this stuff closely summarize where we are? How is Cav doing? I'm not expecting a BU/BC class, but are we at a competitive HE level?

    These days it is standard practice in the world of college hockey recruiting. Reform is needed.

    Define competitive hockey east level.

    They are a program situated in the bottom half of the league. Personally, I do not see it improving in the next few years.

    Yup... that was more of the "damn I'm old" category comment when you see the actual birthdate.

    Oh yeah he's 15 - still, what will he get to 5'9"? Hopefully he has great puck handling skills - he is a russian

    Keep an eye on defenseman Philip Nyberg playing with the Madison Capitols of the USHL.

    He is a 5th round pick of the Buffalo Sabres and has been committed to Wisconsin.

    Planned on being at Wisconsin this fall but an admission issue delayed his enrollment.

    UConn is showing interest.

    @mac2351 just the kind of kid Cav has been using to build his program with.

    #5 ranked 1997 born NCAA eligible prospect in North America, Phillip Nyberg, commits to UConn. The 4.5 star D-man was a former Wisco commit.

    UConn hockey is working hard to get recent commit Philip Nyberg in for the second semester. It’s a very real possibility

    Buffalo Sabres prospect Philip Nyberg has played his last game in USHL. He will join UConn for the second semester. Big add for the Huskies.
