When you play Junior Hockey, at any level player development is always important. This week we saw Caden Glamkowski of the Infantry earn a tender with the NCDC Cyclones ( will have that in an article on Monday ) for his work in getting to the next level. Organizations that cultivate relationships with the teams at the next level of development across the board, like the Rush , Infantry, Typhoon, Cyclones, and so many more do, all should be at your mind’s forefront when deciding on where to go.
Glamkowski took his chance and made the most of it to get to the next level. Like Caden, these three Rush contributors all helped the team get to Nationals and fight for a trophy. They did not win what they wanted in Utica, but the Rush showed their consistency in helping three key players, including one that had been there for a little over a month, move up to the next level.
Hear from Trevor Kleckner on three more commits to the next level to play college hockey in the fall.
Matty was a great acquisition of the Rush who brought a heavy shot and an extremely fast pace of play. His swagger carried his confidence throughout the season, ultimately leading to his commitment to New England College. His willingness to come to the rink ready to work everyday and his ability to be a guy players want to be around will make him a huge asset to the Pilgrims next season.
Chase was a player who took a risk late in the season, coming to the Rush from Lake Tahoe. Chase came to the Rush with a ton of enthusiasm and a team first mentality. Understanding the role he was in, bouncing in and out of the lineup, was a testament to his belief in the Rush to land him a commitment no matter where he was on the depth chart. We are very proud of Chase and wish him the best of luck next season.
Carter was one of the best acquisitions the Rush made this season as a player with lethal scoring abilities and a great guy who always enjoyed being at the rink. He has the ability to slow the play down, possess the puck, and make great plays under pressure. His Hockey IQ and character will carry into his NCAA career with Suffolk next season.”
