The Jr Royals are proud to announce that goaltender, Brett Roman, has committed to the Rams of Suffolk University for the 2011/2012 season. Located in the heart of downtown Boston, Suffolk is a Division III program and member of the ECAC Northeast Conference. Brett becomes the sixth player from this year’s New York Bobcats to receive a commitment to play collegiate hockey.
Having played the most minutes of any goalie on the Bobcats, Brett’s contributions in net played an important role in the team’s overall success this past season. Appearing in 21 games, he earned a terrific 11-2-2-0-1 record with a .905 save percentage and 3.26 goals against average. A rookie this past season, Brett battled hard to earn a spot in the regular goalie rotation and was in net during some of the team’s most memorable games, including a 4-4 tie against the New Jersey Hitmen, the EJHL’s top team at the time. The work ethic and focus he displayed on the ice every day was a primary factor in his overall success and improvement throughout the season.
Before joining the Bobcats, Brett was a member of the Long Island Royals 2009/2010 Junior B National Qualifiers. As their top goalie, he played in 28 games, earning a 19-7-2 record while posting a 2.92 goals against average and .905 save percentage.
